Rio De Janeiro Travel Guide, Brazil

Rio de Janeiro-overview     

Rio de Janeiro counts for being one of the most beautiful cities on the face of the earth. This exceptionally beautiful city comes to be the second largest in Brazil, while being the capital city of the Rio de Janeiro state. This wonderland city is most commonly known by its short name as Rio besides being given the nick name of “The Marvelous City”. 

This beautiful place is known across the world for its scenic beauty, natural wonders, majestic white sand beaches, carnival celebrations and different music forms like samba. The splendid beaches lay decorated at the sides with cream and black churn pattern mosaics.

In addition to the marvelous beaches, the most legendary and celebrated local landmarks include the great Sugarloaf Mountain and the Maracana Stadium, which is counted in the category of the biggest football stadium in the world.

Besides these landmarks, another beautiful familiar sight is the huge Jesus statue, commonly known as “Christ the Redeemer” and is also recently ranked as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.     

In all respects, Rio de Janeiro is a breathtaking place of amazing contrasts with sheer granite mountains going beyond the vast ocean. These steep hills stand between the immaculate colonial buildings nestling among the contemporary glass skyscrapers, wonderful stretches of yellow sand and lush wooded areas tumbling down the hillsides into the heavily inhabited residential areas.

If you are a nature lover, then most certainly you are going to fall in love with the place embedded with deep natural settings. If you have been planning to take a break from your mundane routine life and going on a long, relaxed holiday then coming down to Rio de Janeiro would be a choice worth your dream holiday. Once you are here, you are most likely to be left spell bound by the untouched beauty, rich culture and great hospitality.

Rio is a city of high life, lovely beach attractions, cavalcade and the most loved game of football; you can have the best of fun and a great time spending a luxury time in the great accommodations offered by the city. Owing to its great attractions, frivolity and warm atmosphere, Rio has emerged as one of the most popular and hot favorite tourist destinations.

It has a large number of tourists from the far off corners of the world flocking in all year round, though the best season to drop in would undeniably have to be summer. So, you can plan a long and relaxed holiday and have the ultimate delight in the most beautiful and tranquil environs of the city.
