Trip Advisor, the accommodation reviews site, has just launched its Brazilian domain, with information in Brazilian Portuguese and access to the information published in other languages too. The only section missing from the Brazilian version of the site are the forums, but we imagine we should be seeing them soon. The more info we have from other fellow travelers, the better. As it is the case with other important travel forums, Trip Advisor is having difficulties filtering the noise introduced in its forums by parties with an interest in the tourism industry. The better they succeed in cleaning out the bad weeds, the more credibility genuine travelers will lend to their advice.
At Accommodation in Brazil, our site with full accommodation listings for a number of very popular Brazilian tourist destinations, we have added links to Trip Advisor reviews whenever possible.
