Nobody knows where to go as a tourist better than Guilherme Paulus. In a travel guide he issued he wrote about one of his favorite places to visit which is Salvador, BA. This is Brazil’s second largest tourist destination for a reason. It’s located in All Saints Bay and was once the capital of Brazil. It’s a city with a rich history including the Pelourinho neighborhood which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There is 50-miles of shoreline along the Atlantic Ocean and All Saints Bay to enjoy.
He wrote that there are two very different districts of Salvador. These are connected by the Elevador Lacerda which has the distinction of being the first elevator ever constructed in that nation. He said travelers should definitely check out Pelourinho which has beautiful colorful buildings as well as amazing places to eat and shop. He also directs travelers to visit Park Pituacu which has 800 pieces of outdoor artwork spread out over 450 hectares.
Guilherme Paulus says that those looking for a luxurious hotel to stay in should look to his hotel, the Wish Hotel Da Bahia. This hotel used to be the historic Hotel Da Bahia and he had it renovated.
