Top Things about Brazil
In the Americas, Brazil is the only Portuguese-speaking country. With a long Atlantic Ocean coastline of 7,491 kilometres, or 4,655 miles, to the east, it borders all of the other South American countries except Chile and Ecuador. Brazil is one of the fastest-growing economies in the world, and the gross domestic product is the sixth largest across the globe. With a great track record in political advancement, this country is a founder member of key organisations such as the G20 and the United Nations. Importantly, Brazil is looking after its protected habitats and extensive natural environments, wildlife and resources; and as a result, it is one of a group of 17 countries that shelter the majority of the Earth's species.
Best Cities to Visit
Sao Paulo is the largest city in Brazil and, indeed, in the whole of the southern hemisphere. Named in honour of St. Paul, it has a great deal of influence internationally and regionally in terms of arts, entertainment and finance. Rio de Janeiro is the most visited city in the southern hemisphere and no wonder, it is home to fabulous beaches and stunning scenery, carnival celebrations and famous landmarks, such as the huge statue of ‘Christ the Redeemer’ on Corcovado Mountain. The capital of Brazil is now Brasília; a historic city designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
Expect excellent hospitality and service, elegant surroundings and optimum facilities for business and leisure travellers when experiencing the quality Brazilian hotels. Most of the city hotels are convenient to attractions, whilst resort and beach hotels offer a relaxed atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
