The city popular for Brazil's iconic Carnival is, as you would expect, full of life, colour, and happiness. Rio de Janeiro is like no other city in the world. It's mesmerising Sugarloaf mountains, gorgeous seafront, and brilliant sunsets will take your breath away each night.

Rio’s Copacabana and Ipanema beaches are a must see for anyone travelling to Brazil. These iconic beaches are a popular travel destination for tourists, locals, and backpackers alike. There’s truly nothing more relaxing than enjoying the sun at one of Rio’s many beaches with a coconut in hand.

The dramatic views offered by the Christ the Redeemer statue is something that everyone should experience in their lifetime. Every moment in this landmark will leave you speechless. From the first gondola ride to the top of the mountain, to walking up the flight of stairs to the monument, and finally reaching Christ the Redeemer is a sight that you will not soon forget. Don't leave the monument without visiting the church at the foot of the statue.
