Bahia

Bahia

One of the most beautiful regions of one of the most beautiful countries in the world, Bahia is known for its spectacular scenery and unique cultural identity. Less touristy than popular Brazilian destinations such as Rio de Janeiro, Bahia is an equally dazzling part of the country. Known for its serene and idyllic beaches, lively street culture and colonial architecture. Its cultural identity is a synthesis of Portuguese and African influences, owing to its colonial history. No place better reflects this than its largest city Salvador, which boasts the largest carnival in the world and some of the country’s finest food.
