Best cities to visit in Brazil 2020

If you are planning to travel to Brazil, you should consider visiting the Northeast region of the
country. You will always find beaches and sunshine, great food, fun activities, and welcoming
people. I have visited the following cities during different times, Porto de Galinhas for a day,
Salvador for a week, and Natal for two weeks. You can easily enjoy the best attractions in each
city throughout a week, so I would recommend planning a trip of one week for each of them.
This article will help you understand why you should visit them overall.

Porto de Galinhas - PE

It is a famous tourist attraction in the state of Pernambuco because of its beautiful beach with
clear water. People can easily see colorful fishes and this beach is a great place for diving which
helps to see beautiful corals as well. The village has a wonderful view with many coconut trees,
several stores for clothing and gift shops with handicrafts, great restaurants, and a sculpture of a
chicken where people can take pictures (galinha means chicken in Portuguese). There is also a
sculpture of the name Porto de Galinhas where many people take good pictures.

Salvador - BA

Salvador is the capital of Bahia, and it’s famous for Pelourinho. This word means pillory and
unfortunately, was the place where slaves were flogged. The city has a beautiful European
architecture that has remained the same over centuries. Also, I went to Pelourinho because it is
where Michael Jackson recorded part of his video, “They don’t care about us.” I visited the
building he showed up in the video and talked with the owner of the place, where now has a
store selling Michael Jackson items. His name is Carlos, and he will tell you everything about
when MJ went to Salvador in 1996. Another attraction is the Lacerda Elevator, which is a public
elevator connecting the lower city to the upper city with a breathtaking view of the bay.

Natal - RN

Natal is the capital of Rio Grande do Norte; it is a great place for people who enjoy surfing, the sun, and beaches. The city offers several activities beyond swimming, such as surfing, fishing, kayaking, and jet-skiing. For adventurous people, it is fun to speed on a sand buggy through sand dunes. But if you want to appreciate the views, you better take a slow ride on a camel instead. For example, a large park city in Natal to visit is Parque das Dunas with over one thousand hectares made of forest and sand. Also, the beaches and lakes are a great attraction to have fun or just enjoy a relaxing time while eating and playing with fishes when tables and chairs are inside the lakes, and the water is up to your knees.

Museums in Hollywood

If you are planning to travel to Hollywood, you should visit the following museums as part of your trip. They are located close to each other, in my experience, I was able to visit all three on the same day. I would recommend to visit one museum per day, or two in a day, just to enjoy more and have a relaxing experience and appreciate all the art pieces exposed.
Madame Tussauds Hollywood
Address: 6933 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood, CA 90028
Madame Tussauds is located on Hollywood Blvd and the museum has three floors. People usually spend one to two hours enjoying this attraction. When visiting the website, you can see there are two packages: a standard ticket and the ultimate experience. The Standard Ticket when bought online you can save over $10, the online price is $19.99 and when purchasing at the museum is $30.95. This includes entry to Marvel Superheroes 4D and it is a day access ticket (any time). The Ultimate Experience is a VIP package that includes admission, a wax hand and a photo…

Eight Hours in Orlando

It was July 2017 when I bought my tickets to visit my family in Brazil during the winter break. My classes would be done in the first week of December, so I wanted to buy the tickets at a reasonable price as soon as possible. I would have a layover of eight hours in Florida, but I didn't pay attention to the airport, so I thought it was Miami since I've been there all the time between my flights from Brazil to Minnesota and vice versa. At the end of November, I wanted to check my layovers to let my mom know about everything, and I realized I was actually going to Orlando. So I searched how far would be the airport from Disney World, and it would range from 20 to 25 minutes. I realized I had my perfect chance to get to see Disney World, and after talking to my mom about it, she was afraid I would not have enough time to enjoy the park and catch my flight, but I convinced her and bought my ticket online.
