7 Exceptional Famous Tourist Attractions in Brazil

Brazil is one of the most important travel destinations in South America and makes billions in tourism every year. Long white sand beaches and untouched wilderness of the Amazon rainforest are the main attractions in Brazil. Brazil, the largest country in South America, takes up almost half of the continent.

Almost everything is located in the southern hemisphere and a large part of it is tropical, with large sections of rainforest filled with exotic plants and wildlife. Gold from Brazil’s mines still lines the churches of Portugal, the colonial power that ruled Brazil until 1822.

Amazon Rain Forest

Amazon Rain Forest

At around 6,400 km, the Amazon is the second-longest river in the world, slightly shorter than the Nile and the largest river by volume.

Although a tenth of the world’s estimated 10 million species live in the Amazon rainforest, jungle tours are more about going upriver to the humid, vibrant, oppressive atmosphere than actually watching animals.
