Brasilia: The capital. If you appreciate architecture even just a little bit, get a Brazil car hire and visit this city. The cathedral shaped like a basket, the beautiful Arches Palace and many others make this city a highlight on anyone's trip.
Iguaçu Falls: Brazil shares this famous set of waterfalls with Paraguay and Argentina. They are taller than Niagara Falls and twice as wide. They're a spectacle and best viewed from Brazil.
