Some of the Best to See in Brazil

Updated on November 19, 2015

Some of the best attractions to see in Brazil

BRAZIL - Even just hearing the name evokes so much imagery that it’s impossible not to be curious. From the beaches and culture, to the night life and history, Brazil is a roller coaster that many people are dying to try out for themselves.

But; as in all things, if you’re dying to check out Brazil, you want to know some of the best place to visit that will make your adventure something more than just a quick selfie that you’ll forget a year from now. You want to make sure that you get the full scope of the locale in order to have days – and nights – that will keep you coming back.

Of course, we all know about that one of the best attractions in Brazil is its nightlife. We’re going to start there because it’s a good starting point when it comes to Brazil’s attractions, one of the best sites to see in Brazil, but in no way the main jist of this magical place.

And we’re going to start there because almost 99% of the people that go to Brazil go for the nightlife. The nightlife is diverse, and since you’re merely a tourist, you’ll be able to see both sides of the class divide that exists. There are the street samba parties and Baile Funk parties for those that can’t really afford the high class market and bars, and then there are the high class market bars and clubs that refuse to be in the street. The two of them together give you an unfiltered look – and choice – of your night life venue. Since the nightlife doesn’t really warm up until the wee hours have begun to doze, you have to realize that if you’re serious about being at some of the best attractions in Brazil, you’re probably not going to get home until the following afternoon.

Again, that’s just the tip of the iceberg. There’s so much more when you visit Brazil, and some of the best Brazilian attractions are not far from man-made. The beaches are gorgeous, works of art that will keep you breathless, and the history is second to none. For instance; Mount Roraima is an area of unbridled lush beauty that stimulates the imagination. Just ask Arthur Conan Doyle. His “The Lost World” novel was based off this region, which straddles not only the Brazil and Guyana, but the Venezuelan borders, which features incredible natural beauty that not only inspires the imagination,but has artists striving to bring it justice.

And finally; there’s Rio de Janeiro: which has been revisited in popular culture again and again. If you look hard enough, you’ll find that not only has Rio become a visual cult sensation, but musically as well. Not only the sights and sounds during Carnival, but the iconic Christ the Redeemer built upon Mount Corcovado (which was a popular song by Astrud Gilberto). Began in 1926 and completed in 1931, the statue itself celebrated its 75th birthday in 2006 with the chapel at the base of the mountain being consecrated to the patron saint of Brazil, Aparecida.

No matter how you slice or dice it, Brazil’s attractions are not only numerous, but multi-layered, giving you a sense of culture, history and some of the best attractions Brazil has to offer.

Now that you’re appetite has been whetted, there’s only one thing you can do.
