What’s your favorite city in Brazil? Posted by Rachel on Apr 23, 2009 in Travel
Today’s interactive feature has to do with travel, rather than language. The question at hand is:
What’s your favorite city in Brazil?
This is a tricky question, since I’ve loved every city I’ve been to in Brazil, and there are so many that I haven’t been to yet. In terms of big cities, my favorite is Rio de Janeiro. In my opinion, it’s the most beautiful big city in the world. Even though it has the reputation for being a laid back beach city, it also has wonderful museums, movie theaters, exhibitions, and shows, as well as its famed music, beaches, and tourist attractions.
My favorite small city is Tiradentes, a colonial town located in Minas Gerais. The colonial architecture and streets have been preserved, so visiting the city is like going back in time. It has stunning views of the surrounding mountains and countryside, and it is also very hip, with cool cafés, pousadas, and restaurants.
