Tailor made holiday: North-east Brazil's 'so much to offer' the luxury traveller
The north-east region of Brazil has a lot to offer yet has not been fully explored British holiday-makers, according to the Brazilian Tourist Office.
Glauco Chris Fuzinatto, United Kingdom and Ireland director of the Brazilian Tourist Office, noted that Brits tend to head to the classic destinations of Iguassu Falls and Rio de Janiero.
He said that, although these areas are admittedly fantastic destinations for people planning tailor made holidays, the north-eastern region of the country has a lot more to be explored.
"It's an area that has got so much to offer from luxury, to backpackers, sun and beach, culture, sports events [and] pleasure, it's an amazing part," he said.
Bradt recently published the only standalone travel guide title to cover the region of Bahia. The author, Alex Robinson, shares Mr Fuzinatto's views, saying that it remains a mystery to him why people travel to Asia, the Caribbean and Australia in search of a great undiscovered exotic location, when the Brazilian region remains untouched.
