When you plan to travel/spend your holiday in Brazil, your preferable travel destination(s) might depend very much on your favourite activities.
- a) Just beach holiday
Even if there are many beautiful beaches in different places of the world, which is why this should not necessarily be the main reason to visit this country, following a short description of the three main beach types to be found along Brazil’s 8.000 km coast line:
- Endless flat coconut palm beaches with and without dunes, partly with offshore reefs and coloured sandy cliffs, so – called falesias, in the northeast.
- Charming deserted and semideserted beaches with little bays enclosed by rainforest covered mountains of the Serra do Mar mountain chain, in the southeast (my personal favourite).
- Rio Grande do Sul in South Brazil seems to have one endless flat rectilinear beach from north to south, with dunes but without coconut palm trees and reefs. It reminds a little the Netherlands / European Atlantic coast beaches.
Of outstanding beauty are the Lençois Maranhenses National Park in Maranhao, the coastal part of the Southeast Reserves (Sao Paulo / Parana) and Discovery Coast
If you run through the districts at the heart of the world’s great financial centres, few, in all fairness, are held to be the most interesting places to visit for the average tourist. But popular perceptions can so often be misleading. If you’re a student in the first year of a BS in business administration or a group of friends about to complete their business administration degrees, for instance, you could hardly hope for a more fascinating or valuable trip – after all, it makes sense to get a feel of what they’re all about before you find yourself there for real!
And it’s to that end that this roundup of three of the world’s essential travel destinations for a business student was put together….
Hong Kong Island
There’s no two ways about it, Hong Kong is on the up. In 2008 Forbes Magazine ranked the city as number two in its list of the ten most economically influential and powerful cities in the world (just behind London and above the mighty New York!)
Choosing a travel destination may be the toughest part of your travel. People travel for many different reasons. Whether far away or close to home, time away from home is needed to give a person a chance to relax, renew energy, and freedom from the daily routine. Choosing a travel destination is an individual choice and you have to decide how to balance the factors important to you for making travel planning and destination decisions. Here’s some information to help guide you to find the right destination.
What is the length of your trip?
A long weekend vs. a two week dream destination will lead you to looking toward different areas of the globe. You also have to factor in time differences when you cross time lines, jet lag and losing a day or two just getting back and forth. Even with quick getaways you have to weigh if it’s easier to drive or if it takes just as long driving to the airport, getting through security and the time in the aircraft.
How will you get there?
If you are deathly afraid of
Australia – the land down under. It is easy to say that most people would love to visit Australia. But where do you start? Most of us remember from our world geography studies that Australia is a huge country within its own continent. So – where should you visit? Here are a few suggestions.
Consider Sydney. Surely you have heard of the largest city in Australia. It is a top travel destination in the country too. Not only does this city have a world-famous harbor, but it also offers much to do. Sydney Harbor is a lovely sight by boat, car, and the restaurants that line the water. The Sydney Opera House is an architectural sight to see, as many of us have seen in photographs. Sydney also offers interesting history lessons for the traveler looking to learn while vacationing. The Rocks is a place to learn about Australia’s convict history. You will learn about the hangings and other things that went on in the early days of this city.
The Great Barrier Reef. This giant natural work of art is so large it can be seen from space. There
There are so many beautiful places in this world that is difficult to decide where to go. Each country and each piece of land has its own beauty and culture. Read further about some great travel destinations that should be visited at least once in a lifetime.
Florence is one of the oldest towns, being considered a cultural center, with many points of interest. It is a “magical land” for those passionate about art, culture and architecture. Most of all, Florence is one of the trendiest cities in Europe, full of sophistication, good taste, culture and art. You can visit the Piazza della Signoria, which holds a copy of Michelangelo’s David, Palazzo Vecchio, Il Duomo- the Cattedrale de Santa Maria del Fiore, The Baptistery of John the Baptist, the Ponte Vechio, Galleria degli Uffizi and many others beautiful museums, cathedrals and churches.

With its pristine white beaches and luxury hotels, a holiday in the Seychelles may seem like the boring trip you will ever make right? Wrong. With activities to cater to everyone from the moody teenager to the laid back grandparents, the Seychelles is truly a travel destination for everyone.
You can scuba dive during tour stay in the Seychelles or better yet, go on long hikes in the luscious national parks found all over the country. Mission at Sans Souci on Mahe Island is a learning curve for those who may be vaguely acquainted with the colonial past of the islands. The impressively green back drop to the serene spot found on Mahe, boasts a great view of neighbouring islands like Ste Anne.
If you are visiting the area with a relatively large group, watching the sunset from the kiosk built on the former Venn’s town is breathtaking to say the least. For the younger crowd, the hotels such as Beau Vallon Bay are known to hold live shows with all the latest hits and local releases being played there. Your night may start there and ends at the various
Greece is one of the most preferred travel destinations in the world. It is a country that can offer its visitors not only modern hotel resorts and splendid beaches, but also a rich historical background. A part from the many places you can visit in the continental part of the Greek land, you can also enjoy a wonderful vacation spent on some of the many islands there. The Greek islands will offer you something different from the usual, you can enjoy the beautiful nature, the clean beaches, the sea water, you can hike to places that are hard to reach with car but deserves to be seen or you can just enjoy the Greek cuisine.
The island of Corfu is one of the most famous tourist places in Greece. The name of Corfu comes from the myth about the nymph that has been kidnapped by god Poseidon.
After the collapse of the Byzantium under the pressure of the greedy crusaders, which were going to free the Holy grounds but on the way preferred the treasures of Constantinople, the island of Corfu was occupied by Genoese, Venetians and Neapolitans. They ruled
Romantic travel destinations are located around the world but be sure you make the correct choice and research your romantic travel destination. It is not only young couples in love or who are about to get married and going off on their honeymoon who are looking for romantic travel destinations. But there are also couples who have been together for a number of years and want to celebrate the time they have been together.
No longer is going some where romantic restricted to just those who are getting married or want to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Instead you can choose a romantic vacation for any time of the year that you want.
In this article we take a look at a number of destinations that you and your partner may want to consider when trying to find somewhere a little bit more romantic.
Of course as soon as people think of a romantic destination they automatically think of Paris. Often referred to the city of romance because of its beautiful architecture and food however there are other locations within France which are just as
There are basically two or three different types of vacations that you can go on these days, either by yourself or with your family. The first type of vacation is the sad and ordinary vacation that just about everybody else goes on to the major vacation spots around the world.
These places include Disney World, the Grand Canyon, Silver Dollar City, or either your regular major European spots or your regular tropical beach destinations.
The other type of vacation you can go on is something a little bit out of the ordinary and hopefully I can convince you to take a look at Bruges today, as one of those slightly less than ordinary holiday destinations.
First of all, what is it?
Bruges is known as the Venice of the North. It is located in Northern Europe in the country of Belgium which not a lot of people think about as a travel destination… but they should!
The town has many canals crisscrossing throughout. It has a historic center with cobbled streets and quaint gabled houses that are a real treat to
Kerepakupai Meru, literally meaning ‘waterfall of the deepest place’ in Pemon language, and commonly known as Angel Falls makes for the world’s highest waterfall dropping from a neck breaking height of 979 meters over the Auyantepui mountain into the Kerep River. In course of its fall from the top onto the mountain, much of the water is condensed into mists and carried away by the windy currents. The mountain is confined within the boundaries of the Canaima National Park which also happens to be a UNESCO declared World Heritage Site in the area of Gran Sabana in the Bolivar State of Venezuela.
Though, great stuff doesn’t come easy but to those who believe it! The notion is applicable when it comes to these spectacular waterfalls, as well. Out of hot spot south America travel destinations, the Angel Falls attract many visitors but all those who tick this destination on their must see itinerary, should also be mentally posed about the complicated issue that goes with it. Since the falls are amidst an isolated forest, one can get to the base camp of Canaima by air from either Caracas or Ciudad Bolivar or alternatively
Traveling the world is a dream that so many of us have, but never get to fulfill. The reasons that so many people never achieve this dream is because it doesn’t fit into “society’s plan”, they are too scared to travel, and also because most people think that they just can’t afford to travel. The truth is that traveling doesn’t have to be as expensive as you think. If you do your research you can travel all around the world on a budget. Some destinations cost more than others, for example traveling in Asia is a lot cheaper than traveling in Europe. But it doesn’t matter where you go, there is always a way to save money to make your dream of traveling around the world a reality.
The first thing you need to do is work out your finances. If you are like most people living in western society, you will probably be in some sort of debt, and will spend your money on buying “things”. It is these “things” that generally cause you to go into debt in the first place, and do you really need these things? Or do you

There are numerous travel destinations you can visit today to enjoy attractive landscapes and fascinating attractions, but not every travel destination offers seclusion.

Visited by themselves or in combination, most travelers return satisfied and surprised by their travel experience. For many, they have been on a truly remarkable holiday with a difference. So why is this so? To best answer this, we need to know a little more about these countries and how to travel to and within them.
*How to get there
Most travelers come by air. The national capitals of Damascus, Amman, Beirut and Tel Aviv all have international airports that are serviced by a range of international and Middle Eastern carriers. Both bus and private car travel is possible between most of the countries. Generally these are via a number of single crossing points like Syria-Lebanon and Syria-Jordan (at Derá on the new highway that links the two countries). Land routes exist to bordering countries. Land travel into/from Israel is more restricted. The most common point of entry is via the King Hussein (Allenby) Bridge from Jordan. Syria has a somewhat dated rail network. Some services only run weekly but those on the popular central

Ten long months of waiting and anticipating. At long last, it has arrived: Summer! Most families dream of the typical Disney vacation and spend years saving to make it there. I am firm believer that every family should have at least one such vacation. But, if long lines in extreme heat are not appealing to you, perhaps a traditional Disney vacation will not do.

Choosing a vacation travel destination can be a slightly difficult task for many people. Sure, you could go to the same old boring places that everybody else goes to like Disney World or the Grand Canyon or Branson Missouri’s Silver Dollar City… or you can branch out to slightly more exotic but still boring places like Paris or London or even Hong Kong; and while these are slightly better choices, they’re still the same old boring things that just about everybody does.
Why not choose a vacation that is slightly more exotic and definitely more exciting?
Might I suggest Havana Cuba?
Havana has many things going for it and not the least of all is the fact that it’s so very close to the United States, geographically speaking. This means that you won’t spend all of your time sitting in an airplane when you could be enjoying a jewel of the Caribbean.
Yes, it’s true that Havana is still a city in a communist country, one of the last communist countries left on the planet to be precise; but you should be perfectly safe
