I will be visiting Salvador in a few weeks and I was very worried because I didn't know where I would stay or what type of food I would eat. I also didn't know where to look for some romance though I have been told that in Brazil there are 3 women for every man and that you fall in love everyday. I had a lot of information about Brazil but not the little details that you need to feel at ease. I purchased the book Salvador for Partiers and I was delighted with all the tips and ideas the author offers. For example, the author goes into a lot of details regarding food, snack, beverages, fruits, candy, etc. He includes pictures of just about all the main types of foods you will encounter in Salvador and it not only made me hungry but it made me feel more confident because now I will be able to figure out the different foods on a menu without having to ask the waiter. Now, if you want to find romance while in Salvador, the author mentions many useful tips about the different types of girls you will find. He also has a section where he tells you to which bars, clubs, street parties you should go, how you should dress, age range of people there, and the "approach index" each of these places has. The book is full of pictures of very beautiful places like Pelourinho, the beaches, the street parties, and it also has a few maps. There is a very complete "street price guide" for those like me that don't like to get ripped off while on vacation. I really have enjoyed this book and I have showed it to my family and it has peaked their interest in Salvador. Even if you are going to another place in Brazil, I think you would learn a lot from this book and you will definitely want to visit there sometime after reading about all the wonders this place has to offer. If you want a fun, easy-to-read book with very detailed information about Salvador, you will enjoy "Salvador For Partiers" and you will feel more confident about traveling there on your own.
