Flights from Brazil

Named after the Pau Brasil tree, Brazil is South America’s largest country. It is so long that it touches both the equator and the Tropic of Capricon, causing the country to experience a range of climatic conditions across the land.

The country proudly boasts some of the world’s purest beaches, luxuriant forests, spectacular canyons and diverse wildlife. On the urban side of things, it also has vibrant metropolises bursting with life. Given its size and wealth of attractions, it’s hard to say where one should start exploring Brazil. But if you’re heading out already, make sure you haven’t missed any of these places:

Brasilia

As the capital of Brazil, Brasilia comprises of buildings featuring new-age designs, demonstrating the country’s aspirations for its future. See the inspiring Palácio do Planalto – the president’s office, Itamaraty Palace – the Ministry of External Relations, and the Juscelino Kubitschek Bridge that supports traffic over Lake Paranoa.  Additionally, you can identify the Teatro Nacional Claudio Santoro by its irregular pyramidal structure and even catch a performance or two there.

Rio de Janeiro

Rio de Janeiro is known for its fabulous beaches, including the Copacabana, Ipanema and Leblon. Besides that, the statue of Christ the Redeemer which stands on the Corcovado Mountain and overlooks the city cannot possibly be missed. It is one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World and one should definitely make the trek to see it.

Jericoacoara

Hidden in the state of Ceara is the jewel, Jericoacoara. In this fishing village, life is slow and perfect for those seeking to be rejuvenated. Interestingly, some have labelled it a small Manhattan, as the area still boasts fine restaurants and slick clubs despite the town’s underdevelopment. The many natural charms of the area also include its gorgeous sunsets, clear lagoons and long beaches. 

Outside of Brazil, you can also go on to spend enriching times in the following countries:

Bolivia

Just on the borders of Brazil, Bolivia is a country for the adventurous. A great place for hiking and climbing, Bolivia will engulf you with nature’s austerity as you navigate challenging terrains and encounter biodiversity firsthand. Amidst the exploration, stop by for a look at landmarks such as Cristo de la Concordia – statue of Christ upon San Pedro Hill, Arbol de Piedra – a unique natural rock formation, and the Witches’ Market in La Paz, which sells exotic figurines and items believed to invoke the spirits.            

Peru

Another of Brazil’s neighbours is Peru. Inhabited by the Incas, Peru has more than 5 millennia of history still visible in some of its present day traditions. In Peru, visit the astounding Machu Picchu sanctuary left behind by the Incas and admire the surrounding Andes Mountains. Then, see a variety of marine life, including seals, whales and otters, at the Paracas National Reserve.

Senegal

Fly across the Atlantic Ocean to Senegal, on a flight that will take approximately seven hours, to see the African nation’s glorious coastline, wildlife and archaeological landmarks. Visit the mysteriously pink Retba Lake, the Djoudj National Bird Sanctuary, which is a habitat for precious bird species, and the House of Slaves on Goree Island, which stands as a recollection of Senegal’s sombre history of slavery.
