Even While Oil Prices Skyrocket, You Can Still Save Money On Brazil Travel.

With major conflicts going on in some of the world’s most oil rich nations, speculation has caused oil prices to skyrocket.  This means one thing for travel to Brazil and most of the world for that matter – more expensive airline tickets.


Airline tickets to Brazil right now are almost double what i’m used to seeing this time of the year.

LAS VEGAS (AFP) – China, India and Brazil are poised to fuel an explosion in international tourism in the coming years, showering money and jobs on countries ready for it, and trouble for those that aren't, industry leaders say.
With an estimated two billion new middle class consumers expected to come into the markets from those emerging powerhouses over the next two decades, the travel industry sees a potential gold rush ahead.
"The growth of China outbound travel is moving at a huge pace -- it is about 20 percent increase every year. And the number of outbound Chinese travelers hit 58 million last year," said David Scowsill, CEO of the World Travel and Tourism Council, an industry promotion group.
"And if you look ahead, (with about) 1.6 billion coming out of China and India, they are a huge amount of people coming in with money to burn," he told reporters.

BRAZIL LEADS THE PACK OF EMERGING MARKETS WORLDWIDE

The latest survey undertaken by members of the US-based Association of Foreign Investors in Real Estate (AFIRE) pointed to Brazil’s market leading the ranking – putting the country in front of China and India.

James Fetgatter, chief executive officer and panelist at the ADIT conference  in Forteleza (May 10th-12th), commented that there ‘has not been any other country in Latin America that has shown the results that Brazil has – in 2007, the country was not even mentioned.’  He also, however, commented that the main obstacles that need to be confronted are a lack of transparency, issues over investment security and heavy bureaucracy.

At the same conference, Gary Garrabrant chief executive officer and co-founder of Equity International pointed to the issues the country still faces with regards to infrastructure and the high rates of interest on real estate loans.  In his talk, he stated that, despite the challenges: ‘our goal is to change this situation with positive results which will compensate the constraints.’

Brazil Through Foreign Eyes
March 24, 2008

Meet R Dub from the USA who has been fascinated with Brazil for several years and almost moved here. Read the following interview in which he tells us about some of his most memorable experiences from Brazil and gives some useful advice to newcomers.

1. Tell us a little about yourself, where are you from, what do you do etc.?

I‘m the Program Director of Hot 92.3FM in Los Angeles and I also host and produce a syndicated "love songs and dedications" radio show called Sunday Nite Slow Jams that airs in 50 cities. I‘ve been doing radio since I was 15 years old - it is my passion (along with Brazil). I recently relocated to Los Angeles from Tucson, Arizona to run one of the biggest radio stations in the country. I was supposed to be living in Brazil right now... but that‘s another story, which I‘ll explain later...

2. When did you arrive in Brazil and what brought you here?

BRAZIL: THE UK VOTE

Brazil: The UK Vote
By Mark Hillary
March 8, 2011

I just moved from London to Brazil at the end of last year. I‘ve managed to negotiate my way through the various cartorios to the point where I now have my permanent residency stamp, my CPF card, and my first bank account. Not bad going for the first few weeks of the year. But one thing eludes me, my right to vote back in the UK.

I downloaded the forms I need from the Electoral Commission website. That‘s all easy enough. But I need a witness to watch over me as I sign the documents and that person has to be a British passport holder. Suddenly I realised that I don‘t know a single British person in São Paulo.
