Brazil Holidays

Brazil well known for their carnivals, is a one of the best travel and holiday destination in South America.

A bit History..
Early in the twentieth century, there was a growing demand for rubber across the world. Brazil had plentiful supplies of rubber in its Amazon rainforest. Many landowners made vast sums of money out of rubber.

But tens of thousands of people who came to the rainforest in search of work died from starvation and disease. Brazil relied he avily upon imported goods until World War II (1939-45). Supplies from abroad were stopped during the war. New industries had to be developed. Money was put into building new roads and factories. Foreign companies were encouraged to open factories to make cars and other products. The economy began to grow rapidly. But not all Brazilians have benefited from the money that is being generated by new industries. There is still a huge divide between rich and poor throughout the country. The whole city of Brasilia was built in 1950 as part of the plan to develop the economy.

Curitiba is now the capital of the state of Parana and has a population of over 1.5 million. It is one of Brazil's busiest and fastest-growing cities. Living standards are high in Curitiba. It is a clean city with good health and education services. There is an efficient public transport system. The crime-rate is low compared to many places in Brazil. The city has plenty of parks, gardens and pedestrian-only streets. Its historic buildings have been well looked after. These benefits are the result of good planning by local government. Some of the major car manufacturers have decided to open factories in Curitiba because the city is so well managed. They include Volvo, Renault and Chrysler.
