Salvador is the largest city of the north east coast of Brazil in the state of Bahia. The city is quite often referred to as the ‘capital of happiness' because of its street festivals and friendly locals. It is one of the oldest cities in Brazil and is a centre for culture and the arts. During your time here you can explore the city with 17th and 18th century architecture around every turn, or if you are lucky enough to be visiting during the evening then you may be able to enjoy a musical and dance festival. If you fancy relaxing on the beach then the nearest one is just 15 minutes away or you can take a stroll along the front and visit the main light house for Salvador.
The shopping districts are all over the city where you will be able to find shops, boutiques and market stalls. The souvenirs you can expect here are clothes, ceramics, hand-crafted dolls, traditional African materials, jewellery and musical instruments.
The local currency here is the Brazilian Real (BRL). Salvador is 4 hours behind Greenwich meantime (GMT-4).
