Publisher Comments:

Be inspired by the new edition of Insight Guide Brazil, a comprehensive full-color guide to one of the most exciting countries in the world. The awe-inspiring Amazon Rainforest, amazing beaches, and historic towns are only a sample of what Brazil has to offer. Insight Guides' unrivaled coverage of history and culture provides an essential introduction to the 2014 FIFA World Cup and 2016 Olympic Games host nation. Our Best Of Brazil highlights the countrys top attractions, including Sugar Loaf mountain, Salvadors colonial architecture, the riches of the Amazon, and of course, Carnival! Descriptive region-by-region accounts of where to go are enhanced by beautiful photographs, while all major sights are cross-referenced with full-color maps, and the travel tips section provides a wealth of information on how to plan your trip, plus our selection of the best hotels.
