What to expect from Brazil?
Brazil is ranked as the most beautiful country in the world because of its biodiversity. It is a truly magical place which offers unique experience. Yet, it is a huge country which requires a lot of planning. It is the largest state in South America with over 211 million people. Airplanes will be probably your main means of transport. Airports are literally everywhere. Don’t expect to rent a car and go for a road trip. You would probably lose a lot of time. Most of the country speaks only Portuguese. Even in biggest cities like São Paulo or Rio de Janeiro you won’t hear English much. Before your arrival you should definitely learn some basics in Portuguese! Language is the key. For the first time plan your trip around 5 main cities – São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Salvador and Manaus (Brasília is the capital and you should visit it but it is mainly the city with the government’s offices.). They are the best places to understand Brazilian culture, eat local cuisine and meet new friends. Brazil is also the place of the largest jungle in the world – the Amazon. Don’t miss this one on your list. It is a true natural wonder. There are so many things to see! Below you will find some tips about this wonderful country.
