Brazil, an exotic dream to plan a trip to!


Here are some great facts about Brazil, if your planning a trip and need this country general details to get to know where you going is the name of the game :)

With some 194 million residents, Brazil is the fifth largest country in the world. It’s also the fifth largest country by landmass as well as the largest country to be found in the southern hemisphere. Add to these 7,500 kilometers of coastline and you have the ultimate tourist destination.

Planning a trip to Brazil revolves around deciding between the country’s super-sized cities or its natural locations just a little further off the map.

Rio de Janeiro is the most popular destination for international tourists. Its mix of rich and poor is brazenly apparent, something that cannot be said for many major cities. The most popular attractions to be found here are the annual Rio Carnival and the statue of Christ the Redeemer that looks out over the city and Guanabara Bay.

Sao Paulo – Brazil’s largest city – and its capital, Brasilia, are both popular with domestic travelers.

Thanks to the presence of the Amazon rainforest, Brazil is also a popular destination with eco-tourists and adventurers, while the long stretches of beach in the northeast of the country are ideal for those looking for a little R&R.

As you plan your Brazil trip, be sure to look out for Iguazu Falls, a truly stunning natural sight that is Brazil’s answer to Niagara Falls.
