Is It Safe for an Asian Girl to Travel Alone in Chile?

Hi, I am from Hong Kong. I start to think about travelling alone in South America (including say, Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Peru) in October 2014. Many friends seriously advised me not to do so for safety's reason. Is it safe for an Asian girl travelling alone in Chile? I have been learning Spanish since last year.

Thanks in advance for all your replies.

Absolutely yes. But follow your common sense with regards to safety just like anywhere else. Such as not wandering alone in deserted area, Not showing off your expensive watch or DSLR that says rob me. Dress down...

I think your question(s) should really be -

"Is it safe for an Asian girl (me) to travel alone".

The country is almost irrelevant, unless you suspect there is a tendency to attack solo Asian girls.

More important than the country, is how well you travel on your own? Have you travelled anywhere alone before? How did you get on?
