Brazil Tourism Videos Allow Digital Travelers To Explore Lesser-Known Cities

Brasil is hoping that the 2014 World Cup will jumpstart its tourist economy by bring the beauty and diversity of its many urban centers to the attention of a global viewership likely aware of Rio and Ipanema and Carnival, but ignorant of charming Pantanal.

In order to better promote the match sites, the country's tourism board has released an amazing series of interactive videos that allow viewers to look around as they zoom through the skies above, along the rivers through and down the streets linking Brazil's metropolises. The videos make a pretty solid argument for traveling to the Brazil beyond Rio's beaches, where bright lights, great graffiti and natural wonders await.
