Having recently hosted the world’s biggest footballing event, Brazil is definitely no stranger to tourists, young or old. There’s a variety of reasons why it’s such a popular tourist destination. Here are some of the most important reasons:
Nightlife in Brazil
For hipsters and those that are passionate about music, Fosfobox is the place to be. There are DJs showing their skills, while the club-goers take to the floor and dance their hearts out to the loud beats. The music is varied – from underground electronica to rock, hip-hop, pop, and even samba. There really is something for everyone at Fosfobox. The club is divided into two sections – the downstairs dance floor, which is usually packed, and the upstairs bar with a balcony, which gives club-goers a chance to grab some fresh air.
In the mood to dress up and feel a little fancy? Then Nuth lounge is the place to be. Located in Barra da Tijucas, the club plays a wide variety of music, including hip-hop, house, R&B and electro.
Casa da Matriz
This is definitely the place to be if you are keen on all kinds of music, ranging from indie-tunes, to punk and grunge, hip-hop and even soul. This vibrant venue is usually filled with students, and you can definitely let your hair down while dancing and enjoying a karaoke night.
Saturday is the day for sambas at Bar Samba in Vila Madalena, as live music plays throughout the day while people eat, drink and party.
This four-day carnival provides plenty of excitement and fun activities, as colourful costumes and beautifully crafted masks abound. You can dance to the constant flow of samba music while sipping on a delicious caipirinhas.
The Calixto outdoor market
If you’d like to do some shopping, then visit the The Calixto outdoor market in São Paulo, an outdoor market which is open for the whole day and features live music, dancing, tons of hand-made goodies, and much more.
Visit the Amazon
Go canoeing, make your way into the forest, and if you’re feeling particularly adventurous, climb a tree to get a magnificent aerial view of the forest. These kind of experiences cannot really be explained in words, and can only be lived.
[H2] Party hostels
Vila Carioca Hostel
Located in Rio, this hostel is managed by a vibrant group of youths, so it’s guaranteed to cater for everything you’re looking for, if you’re young and looking for a good time. The staff will help you arrange everything, from transport to activities like surfing, hiking, or directing you to the best and most popular live music venues.
Che Lagarto Hostel Ipanema
Another great hostel in Rio, the accommodation is reasonably priced and located near the beach. The staff speak a variety of languages, including English, Portuguese, and Spanish.
Lemon Spirit Hostel
Located a block away from the beach, this hostel in Rio offers visitors a taste of the local life. Experience a traditional and succulent Brazilian barbeque, while interacting with locals and tourists alike, or sit back and relax while watching DVDs in the hostel’s lounge.
If you’re more of an arty type, visit Museu de Arte de São Paulo, where there are frequent exhibitions, as well as some of the finest Western art available. Unfortunately, if you’re a young, avid gambler, you won’t find any land-based casinos in Brazil. However, you could always access the Euro Palace mobile online casino from wherever you are, whether you’re enjoying the outdoor activities or relaxing in your hostel.
Whoever you are, and whatever you’re into, Brazil has something on offer for everyone and it certainly is a must-visit destination.
