Despite its popularity, Brazil is largely unknown to a lot of people. Other spots around the world have taken the front seat in the tourism area which is incredibly sad when you consider how much Brazil has to offer the tourist. No matter who you are there is something for you in Brazil. The culture is enough to please anyone and the many tourist attractions make for vacations that will be talked about for years to come.
One of the most famous of all tourist attractions is the churches of Salvador da Bahia. Built by the slaves from past years, the churches are huge mansions filled with gold and ordained like no other in the world. The church leaders in years past were very wealthy and required only the best in accommodations. During this time the churches were not really used for worship but for some other fairly illegal activities. This included the slave trade which plagued the country for decades.
Salvador is also known for the week long carnival that is held every year. During the summer months the streets come alive at night and welcome those from all over the world. While the city does offer festivals throughout the year, the carnival is the largest draw by far. Famous people the world over will travel the long distance to be part of the celebration. Dancing, plenty of music, food and drink are all part of the event. For many days the carnival will grind on. During the day you can find many cultural events, including demonstrations by the local tribes on their customs.
There is also Brasillia, the reigning capital of Brazil. Once a barren and dry land, Brasillia was turned into a thriving capital center over the course of three years. Some of the finest architects in the world answered the call to design the many buildings for the city. Over the course of three years the city was built and populated by thousands and became a thriving site of commerce and trade.
Then who could forget Rio de Janeiro. A famous tourist attraction itself, Rio boasts some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. This is one of the most beautiful areas in all of Brazil. Over the years more and more celebrities have come to this area to purchase land. New economic deals have sprung up because of this and some of the locals are now running tours based on the homes that are owned by famous people the world over.
No matter where you go in Brazil you will find something that is highly desirable. It is no secret why so many are flocking to this area each year. Check with your travel agent as there are many wonderful packages that will give you a glimpse of this wonderfully diverse land.
