Brazil is in South America and a great alternative to the more standard Uruguay or Venezuela. There is so much cultural history in Brazil that you could spend months there discovering it. Of course, the climate is also pleasant and its natural beauty is fantastic.

9. Tanzania

Many people will have heard of Tanzania but still choose to holiday in Kenya instead. Tanzania has exactly the same to offer, but generally at a much lower price as tourism has not so much taken off yet. Furthermore, you will be far more able to taste some true African cultures, not as much tainted yet by the steady influx of tourists each year
