Bahia is a section in Brazil that is becoming more and more popular for tourists, musicians, and actors alike to vacation. With 650 miles of coastline to explore, you can have a great vacation and not worry about being bothered by huge crowds. In a new article from The New York Times, Alex Robinson writes about how to spend 8 days in Bahia, as well as other things to know about the area. Here’s a sample from the article.
2) After touring Baroque buildings in the city’s Pelourinho district, tuck into the moqueca at the Sorriso da Dadá restaurant. Then go to a concert at Terreiro de Jesus square.
