But what if you want to stay away from the revelry or you are the one who has been to Rio already? For such people, the luxury travel destination like Salvador is quite a bet.
Consider making your way to Salvador da Bahia, the capital of the Brazilian State of Bahia. Salvador da Bahia is famous for its colonial Portuguese architecture and sunny, tropical climate. Although, travelers often skip Salvador Bahia, it is well worth a visit. As a former capital of the country, the city boasts rich colonial heritage, architecture and art. With its charming architecture, historic old town and idyllic beaches, Salvador Bahia will pull you in quickly and win you over. We particularly loved how cultural the city is! We enjoyed everything from trying the local food to learning about the good luck ribbons that appear all over the city.
The streets of Salvador
Firstly, Salvador was once the capital of Brazil and the regal architecture makes it easy to imagine. Wandering through the old town, you’ll see rows of colorful buildings with a colonial flair constructed on twisting cobblestone streets. Once you step on city’s streets, you will see that there’s truly no lack of things to do in the city.
The entire Old Town, called Pelourinho, is protected by UNESCO and flaunts a mix of European and African influences. On the other hand, while exploring the area, don’t miss Salvador Cathedral or the Rio Branco Palace. The reason being it is one of the most historic buildings in the city.
Visit the Forts
While hitting the beaches is one of the top things to do in Salvador, Brazil, it’s not the only thing that you can do there. For instance, if you get tired of lying on the beach, take a stroll along the promenade. You can visit a couple of Salvador, Bahia’s famous forts. Despite the city being on the east coast of Brazil, these two forts actually face to the west. So, they’re perfect places to watch the sunset.
Taste Some Bahian Dishes
Certainly, the Brazilian cuisine is delicious and nowhere is that truer than in Salvador. That is to say, after enjoying all of the things to do in Salvador, Brazil, don’t forget to try the city’s cuisine. Acarajé, originally a West African dish, was one of our favourites. In its most basic form, it’s a deep fried ball of mashed beans served with a variety of spices stuffed inside it.
