Opportunities for investment in Rio de Janeiro state could be created by the forthcoming carnival season, it has been suggested.

The festivities get underway across Brazil on February 13th 2010, with the biggest and most famous parties set to go ahead in the city of Rio de Janeiro, as well as the likes of Recife and Salvador in the country's North East.

And travel editor of Lonely Planet Tom Hall revealed that bargain-hunting revellers could be tempted to stay in Rio de Janeiro state, rather than in the city itself, in an effort to cut their costs.

He said that tourists may "consider staying outside the city and travelling in for the carnival".

"You'll find things will be a little bit calmer, you can rest up a little bit and it's a little bit less expensive," Mr Hall commented.

He went on to add that while there are alternatives on offer in cities across the country, for a lot of visitors the Rio carnival is their preferred destination because it is a "once in a lifetime experience".ADNFCR-1477-ID-19564838-ADNFCR
