The cities and stadiums that will host the 2014 World Cup are: Belo Horizonte (Estadio Mineirao), Brasilia (Estadio Nacional), Cuiaba (Arena Pantanal), Curitiba (Arena da Baixada), Fortaleza (Estadio Castelao), Manaus (Arena Amazonia), Natal (Estadio das Dunas), Porto Alegre (Estadio Beira-Rio), Recife (Arena Pernambuco), Rio de Janeiro (Estadio do Maracana), Salvador (Arena Fonte Nova) and Sao Paulo (Arena de Sao Paulo).
Football fans are already started to prepare their travel plans for the cup. Booking inquiries for hotels have more than doubled in some Brazillian cities this year.
Figures from the hotel comparison website Hotels.com suggested that searches for accommodation in Salvador have more than doubled in the first half of 2013, increasing by 126 per cent on the same period last year.
Searches for hotels in the northern city of Fortaleza have also risen sharply - by 108 per cent - while travellers looking for accommodation in the already popular destinations of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro increased by 32 per cent and 36 per cent, respectively.
On the other hand, according to a recent Brazilian Tourism Board (Embratur) study, Rio is now the world's third most expensive city when it comes to hotels. The study says that a hotel room in the city on average costs $246.71, compared with $245.82 in New York and $196.17 in Paris.
Embratur announced that the government would monitor hotel prices to prevent abuses in World Cup host cities.
Moreover, not only hotels are pricey but also restaurants as well. Over the past 10 years, restaurant prices have soared 140 percent, according to the national statistics agency IBGE.
