Guides To Brazil's Cities & Regions

Brazil Travel Guide

Brazil is the largest country in South America both in terms of area and population. Brazil has a population of 193 million (2012) and is an emerging economic powerhouse with the world's sixth largest economy.

Brazil is the fifth largest country in the world and is a country of immense natural and human diversity. Brazil is also the world's largest Portuguese-speaking (Lusophone) nation, though many of Brazil's original immigrants from Germany, Japan, the Middle East and even Wales still retain their original language as well as Portuguese, in addition to the 180 Amerindian languages that still survive.

Independent from Portugal since 1822, Brazil's status as a world power will be confirmed by the hosting of the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games.
