Going Nuts For Brazil

Aug 29, 2008
For anyone planning a holiday to Brazil I would recommend one thing. If you can't take a few months to explore this awe inspiring country then you should at least make use of the Brazil tours that are on offer in order to gain the maximum coverage of the country.

A Brazil tour is the perfect tool to assist you in taking in all that Brazil has to offer. Up and down the country, there are sights that will simply take your breath away. The cities are among some of the most advanced in the world when you look at the standard of the modern day architecture.

Make Brasilia your first stop and take a good few hours to absorb the peace and tranquillity inside Santuario Bom Bosco. This is an imposing building with enormous, arched windows but step inside and you are transported to the cool tranquillity of the sort only Brazilian churches can do. If inspiration is what you are looking for from the local architecture, take your Brazil tour to The National Pantheon. This is a building dedicated to local heroes who stood for freedom and democracy and you are consumed by the fight these people had on their hands to secure this freedom for future generations.

For manmade structures also see the stepped villages of Olinda. Pastel painted terraced houses in a higgledy piggledy fashion are quaintly pretty as well as functional.

As one word of warning, Brasilia is currently seeing a rise in cases of Yellow Fever so seeing your doctor in good time before you go is always a good idea.
Sau Paulo is also worth ensuring is on your Brazil tour itinerary. This is one of the largest cities in the world and as such, can be a little daunting. It can also be viewed as a huge challenge, negotiating your way round the city will bring you in touch with places that you never would have found were you sticking to a plan.

Beaches are something that Brazil has in abundance. Not just any old beach but glorious, sun soaked, palm lined beaches. If you visit Ipanema Beach you can watch the most dramatic of sunsets over the distant Dois Irmaoes mountain. Palms are a common sight in Brazil and a walk down the Avenue of Imperial Palms in Jardin Botanico is an absolute must.

For water lovers, there is more than just the beaches. There is the famous Amazon river and a wealth of waterfalls such as the Iguacu Falls National Park. Brazil tours take you to Devils Throat which is the best vantage point for seeing the waterfall in all its glory. To see and feel the power that this waterfall exudes is truly stirring.

The natural and man-made scenery is much of the reason people visit Brazil. This is a colourful country like no other. There is a wealth of wildlife that can be quite easily seen in Pantanal. From toucans to blue and yellow Macau, from pink flamingos to Caiman (a member of the crocodile family), the animal kingdom from Brazil is among the most beautiful in the world.

As if there isn't enough natural colour to see on a Brazil tour you can always take in one of the many carnivals. Brazilians pride themselves on the gaiety of their carnivals and everything pertaining to lurid colours is present.

Obviously, this is a huge country and every bit needs to be taken in time and again to feel the full force of its beauty. A Brazil tour would be ideal or you could use the excuse that you need to return year on year as no other holiday destination is quite going to compare.
