Travel Talk Question
asked about 2 years and 3 months ago
My wife and I are planning a trip to explore Brazil - Bahia and Rio. We're in the planning stages and would like recommendations on where to go and what to see. Good food, good dancing and sights.

My friend lives in Rio and came up with the following things to see and do in Rio. Hope it helps:
- Corcovado (personal note: do it on a clear day, the view is amazing and it would be a shame if you got to miss it because of clouds)
- Pao de Azucar (Sugar Loaf) --> the gondola you use to go up there was used in one of the James Bond movies
- Copacabana Beach (I remember I was recommended to not take my camera out because of robbers, but you HAVE to get at least one photo)
- Ipanema Beach (personally I found this a prettier beach than Copacabana)
- See if you can take an ORGANISED trip into the favelas (very important, do not undertake this by yourself because you will NOT come out alive)
- Praia Club
- The Week (best on Fridays)
- Vivo Rio
(The last two usually have 'special events' on. I don't know what that means but you might find out when you're there.)
- Porcao Rio
And if you have an extra day or so, visit Buzios. It's beautiful!!
Hope this helps. Enjoy your trip.
