- I love Paraty, the combination of colonial architecture, luscious forest and clear blue sea make it a perfect romantic getaway.

- There is a small B&B tucked away in the middle of the forest next to a waterfall. It only has 5 rooms and there is a wood sauna from where you can jump into the waterfall to cool down.

- I love Brazil as it is dotted with amazing places like Paraty.

I live in Montes Claros/MG, of course this is my favourite city. Here it is hot and sunny almost the whole year, I have no problem with the weather, by the way, I like my city’s weather.

There are almost 500,000 inhabitants here, so my city isn’t that small, eh?

I live in Florianopolis, and I think it's a great place to live on, with all the beaches and places to visit. The city has a problem with trafic jam around downtown in the rush hour. This is happening because of the quick increasing population (around 400 thousand) and bad public transportation system. Besides, SC in general terms is a great place and I'd never thought about moving out. This is my favorite region.

I'm from São Bernardo, and I don't like it that much. Luckily it's not so hot as in Rio de Janeiro and fresher comparing to the stuffed wheather of São Paulo. But still, horrible traffics jam, crowded streets, buses...everything. Annoying!
All in all , not everything is rubbish ther, it's not that bad and you can always find amusing programmes to go and cultural events.
It's near to São Paulo, which is, by the way, much more interesting than São Bernardo. However, São Paulo is ever more chaotic and busier.
I think I would like to go to Floripa rsrs

Hi Gabi,

I agree with you. As Eduardo told us, Floripa seems to be a good place to live.
I've never been to Floripa, but I'd like to.

Regards,

This is my first post here! Sorry if i make any gramatical or other kind of mistakes...
I really love the south of the country, more specifically Gramado, RS, because of its weather, the beauty and the very polited people.

I have been in Gramado, Renato, it's really a beaultiful place there is look like Europe, but what I really like it's big cities like São Paulo, when I live.
I also like places where have nature, like Fortaleza or Florianópolis.

Born in Três Corações-MG but moved on to Salvador-BA and then on to Açu-RN and then down to Barra de Santa Rosa-PB where, as a little kid, I'd clearly remember seeing sandy streets. It didn't take too long to move yet further down to Recife-PE and then back again to Salvador-BA. From Salvador-BA I finally landed on Caruaru-PE and then, after a bit of shuttling between Olinda-PE and Jaboatão-PE, finally rested in Recife-PE, yes one more time. My family moved more than a lolipop in a toothless mouth.

I can call any non-violent place home or regard it as a fav place as long as it allows me to move around without getting mugged or murdered. I got mugged three times already. Unfortunately. But not murdered, thank God.

Needless to mention about where I live, Gabi did it for me!

My favourite place indeed is Bertioga, i love its beaches and there are so many things you can enjoy simultaneously, such as the hot weather, beach games, volleyball. It's always good to find a place where you can have the quietness of it and get along with the active nightlife, that is, depending on the season you're in. In a whole, it's perfect 'cause you never get bored, unless it's raining, and if it happens, forget buddie, go home and that's it.

:D

Actually, I don't have any favotire city or region in Brazil perhaps, I like so much of mine because it is where I live.
I would like to know other cities and regions in Brazil and I hope to do it someday.

I like rio de Janeiro because it has an excellent math institute, IMPA, which stands for "Institute of math pure and applied", but in Portuguese, of course.

It's Camboriú city, at Santa Catarina state...

Because it's a very good beach. Besides very good beaches there, there are a lot of good shoppings, shops, and other very pleasant places do go. There are also a lot of beautiful places to go, such as a hill where we go by car and at the top, we can see all the city up there...

Rio de Janeiro, The wonderful city. The girl from Ipanema's city. One of the seven wonders of the world's city. There are many interesting places there.

Vanessa Quadros
Hello!

Ipojuca is my favorite city, because there is the beach "Porto de Galinhas". It's very beautiful! The beach, the sea, the sky, the vegetation, the people, the food... It's all wonderful!!

Bye!

Actually this question is not fair to me as I have not visited all the regions of Brasil.

The people make a city or region attractive and to date the vast majority of the people of Brasil that I have got to know are honest, hard working, friendly and fun loving. While each neighborhood will presumptively have both good and bad inhabitants, my experience is that the vast majority of the people of Brasil are honest, hard working, friendly and vavacious.

From a strictly natural beauty point of view I would have to say that my favorite places are, in no particular order, Paraty, Fox do Iguacu, and the Pantanal.

I absolutely love the contrasts in architecture that one finds in almost any city, the vibrant colors, styles and age of the buildings are absolutely indescribable, and must be seen to be appreciated. Of special beauty are, again in no particular order, Luz Train Station, Metropolitan Cathederal, and Municipal Theater in Sao Paulo, Amazon Theater in Manaus, all of the Government Buildings in Brasilia, Christ the Redeemer in Rio, and almost any church in any town.

So in answer to what is my favorite city or region in Brasil, I must say that all of Brasil is my favorite. Ask an unfair question and get an evasive answer. :D hahahahaha :lol:

When we talk about São Paulo, we tend to say that we hate it because of the violence, pollution, traffic jam, impoliteness of some people... But, actually, we can not live out of it, we are kind of part of it.. I mean, I love this city. Of course, I do love travelling to the countryside to overlook a gorgeous landiscape, to breath a pure air, to dive in a clear transparent water, to see the deep blue sky; but, I have to admit that in the end, I`m looking forward to coming back home.

Ailime,

I would like to suggest some minor changes and have the Paragraph read as follows:

"When we talk about Sao Paulo, we tend to say that we hate it because of the violence, pollution, traffic jams, impoliteness of some people, but, in actuality we can not live outside it, in other words, I love this city. Of course, I do love travelling to the countryside to overlook a georgeous landscape, to breathe pure air, to dive in crystal clear water, to see the deep blue sky; but I have to admit that I am looking forward to coming back home at the end of the day."

As I said these changes are minor, and they simply contribute to better construction, word choice, and ease of reading.

Bill,

Your text is by far much better. Thank you very much for your correction!!

This is my first post here too!

Well, answering to the question: I don know many regions of the Brazil, only the Southeast.
And I love beaches and sunny places, so I think the northeast would be a very good place to live.
But the south of the country is also a very good place to live, if you think about the quality of life, and there we have alot of great universities!

Bill, in a way the name of the city you live in (Pensacola) sounds like Portuguese "Pensa na sacola" (Think of the bag). :D
