You may already know of some of the more famous sights to see in Brazil, but here is a brief selection of activities for you to be doing while visiting this great South American country, especially useful if you do not have much time there.
We all know that Brazil has a very diverse history, stretching from its Indigenous roots, through the colonial period up to the independent and modernised Brazil that we know today. Brazil's numerous landmarks reflect not only this but also their culture, and they truely are a sight to behold!
This sense would normally be a tricky one, however luckily for us Brazil is home to the Amazon. The Amazon river is one of the longest in the world, second only to the Nile, and the rainforest is the largest on the planet, covering 5,500,000 km², 60% of which is in Brazil. It is the largest and most biodiverse tract of tropical rainforest, being home to around 16,000 species of tree alone.

Brazil, home of the açaí, has the largest fruit selection in the world - unsurprisingly thanks to the Amazon. Some typical food includes Feijoada (stew of beans, beef and pork), coffee (the world's largest producer), Cachaça (a distilled spirit made from sugarcane), rice & beans, Salgadinhos (similar to Tapas).
