One of 12 chosen cities to host the 2014 FIFA World Cup, Salvador is bracing itself for a tremendous flow of tourists. When you think of Brazil, the first city that comes to mind is Rio de Janeiro, and that’s where the day dreaming starts and ends. You might now know this, but Salvador is the hub of the Afro-Brazilian culture and has by far, the best preserved heritage if you really want to know what went down during the colonial times.
Known as the “land of happiness”, the icing on the cake here is the abundance of sand and sunshine. As you amble about the cobblestoned streets of Salvador, don’t be alarmed if your body starts moving to the rhythmic beats of the African music that is unique to the streets of Salvador. A holiday here is sure to make you want to re-visit the place.
