Things To Do in Rio de Janeiro

Jesus Christ's Statue
291 Reviews
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
Sugarloaf Mountain
290 Reviews
D31***61this is a must to do experienced for anybody who comes to Rio de Janeiro. Best to make your own way there and buy a ticket otherwise your time will be limited up on the top of Sugarloaf

Rio de Janeiro Cathedral
177 Reviews
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
81 Reviews
Featured Neighbourhood
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.
