Ushuaia is promoted as the southernmost city in the world.  It sits on the shore of the Beagle Channel in Argentine Tierra del Fuego.

Apart from the grand views of sea, mountains and forest, there's the train of the end of the world, a steam powered train that takes you on a casual journey from the End of the World station to the Tierra del Fuego National Park station.

Of course it's also an ideal place to start a trip to Antarctica!

Ushuaia has just about everything you could ask for, hotels, camera shops, banks, internet cafes and souvenirs aplenty, so if you've forgotten an item of clothing, film, batteries, or just about anything else, you can be sure to find it here!  Prices are very reasonable and the food is excellent.

I spent a couple of days in Ushuaia at the Los Niros hotel, a short drive from Ushuaia itself.
