Incredible places that locals wish were kept secret

Easyvoyage Logo By Editorial Team of Easyvoyage | Slide 2 of 10: One of the most famous rainforests in the world is becoming an increasingly popular tourist destination. The main spot tourists go to is Manaus, the capital of the Amazon state. There are plenty of tour guides willing to take travellers into the forest to see towering trees, or to the "meeting of the waters" where two rivers come together, showing the two distinct colours of the river. Other tourist agencies promise contact with a local tribe. Although many residents find the influx of foreign cash appealing, others believe the region is being exploited beyond sustainable means. In fact, there are programs set up which enable tourists to visit the Amazon without harming the ecosystem.
