Rio de Janeiro
Affectionately knew as the "Marvelous city" among locals, Rio de Janeiro is indeed a spectacular sight to behold. Founded in 1565, Rio has risen to become one of the most famous cities in Brazil, and was in fact the capital of this far reaching country up until 1960. There are a lot of iconic features associated with Rio, of which the Christ The Redeemer statue perched overlooking the city might be the most striking. Another popular Rio feature, is the annual Carnival celebration. One of the biggest and most eccentric parties the world over, Carnival is just before Lent, and is tolerated by the within the Roman Catholic Church as a get-it-all-out-of-your-system new party. The natural landscape around Rio is spectacular, with numerous peaks surrounding their unique harbor helping it to land a spot on the list of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. There are dozens of historic and modern attractions throughout the city, although it's still advisable to steer clear of the faults, or slums. Still, if you are looking for fun and excitement, this city is part of the best such options in all of South America.

D31***61We made our way to The statue of Christ by using public transport first we bought a ticket at the Metro and there is a connecting bus that will take you directly to the cog tram. The cost was substantially cheaper than using a need to and also you are not limited to the amount of time that you spend up at the top of Christ the Redeemer

Church
悠游麦兜The Ladder Cathedral is located on the Chilean Avenue in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The style of this Catholic church is completely different from the traditional European architectural styles with ancient history, which is known for its elegance and magnificence. The whole church looks like a reinforced concrete from the outside. The pyramid has a staircase-like channel design on all sides, reaching the top, just like a staircase leading to heaven. The interior style of the church is full of modernity and fashion. The dome is marked with a huge cross in the form of a glass skylight, and white glaze is used on all sides to pass through the dome from the ground. The center of the building space is a huge one tied to a golden cross. The statue of Jesus above, the whole building is open and simple. When we arrived, it happened to be here at the inauguration ceremony of the giant clergy. At the end of the ceremony, the choir girls sang hymns. The whole scene was shocking.
Rocinha Favela
4.2/5
81 Reviews
Max HodgeA night at one of Rio de Janeiro’s infamous favelas, will unquestionably be a new experience you're unlikely to forget in a hurry. Whist the prospect of dancing the night away in one of the city's most dangerous neighbourhoods sounds daunting, the reality is completely the opposite. Brazilians are renowned for knowing how to have a good time, and the nightlife in the favelas epitomises this, as the locals forget about their daily routines and let their hair down for a night of Favela madness! Just make sure you book it through a tour guide, rather than braving it by yourself.
