25 Things to do in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil Travel Guide

Hello from Rio de Janeiro! This was our first stop in Brazil and we were very excited to check out the top attractions, sample Brazilian cuisine, and squeeze in a little bit of beach time. We had an action packed week exploring the different neighbouhoods and trying everything from churrasco to brigadeiro, so we decided to film a city guide along the way. This video will showcase 25 things to do in Rio de Janeiro. Now let's get to it!

Our visit Rio De Janeiro travel guide documentary, before the Olympics of 2016, covers some of the top attractions including a food guide (best restaurants and street food), top museums and Rio at night. We also cover off-the-beaten-path activities you won't find in a typical Rio De Janeiro tourism brochure or Rio De Janeiro, Brasil city tour.

25 Things to do in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil Travel Guide and Top Attractions Transcript:

First up, we started with the city’s most iconic sight: Christ Redeemer. We boarded the train as soon as the station opened and made our way to the top of Corcovado Mountain. Sometimes the statue can be shielded by fog, but we lucked out with beautiful blue skies and panoramic views of the city as far as the eye could see.

For a bit of colour, we headed over to the Selaron Steps, which is a tiled staircase created by Chilean artist, Jorge Selarón. Initially Selaron would scavenge construction sites looking for tiles, but in later years as his work gained notoriety, travellers began donating tiles.

Since we chose to stay in the neighbourhood of Ipanema, we ended up spending quite a bit of time at Ipanema Beach. We noticed that this beach was really popular for beach football, volleyball, and surfing. And of course, what makes this beach so iconic are its two mountains, known as Dois Irmãos. If you come here on a clear day, you can catch a killer sunset.

No visit to Rio de Janeiro would be complete without heading up Sugarloaf Mountain, so when the skies finally cleared that’s exactly what we did. We paid for our tickets and boarded the cable car for a somewhat unnerving ride up. If you’re scared of heights, this probably isn’t the attraction for you, however, if you manage to make it to the top you get some really cool panoramic views of Rio.

Copacabana Beach is the most famed beach in all of Rio de Janeiro and if you were to visit on a weekend during the summer months you’d find that the place is packed beyond belief. We happened to be here in winter so things were a lot more relaxed, but that didn’t stop visitors from braving the waters.

We did a favela tour to Babilônia and Chapéu Mangueira. On our tour we saw lots of street art, learned about life inside a favela.

And that is a wrap! We hope this video will give you guys some ideas of things to do in Rio de Janeiro on your visit, and for those travellers who have already been there, feel free to add your suggestion of cool activities and attractions in the comments below.

This is part of our Travel in Brazil video series showcasing Brazilian food, Brazilian culture and Brazilian cuisine.

For this video, we also had two of our Brazilian friends join us and they were able to provide a unique window into the city. This travel guide will showcase 20 things to do in Sao Paulo, Brazil:

20 Things to do in São Paulo, Brazil Travel Guide and Top Attractions Video Transcript:

Within the park grounds you’ll find the Afro-Brasil Museum, which is a contemporary museum that looks at African culture and influence in Brazilian society. And not too far from there, you’ll come across the Museum of Modern Art.

Batman Alley is located in Vila Madalena and it has become a popular tourist and Instagram spot. Apparently the place gets its name because the first piece of graffiti to go up was one of Batman back in the 1980s.

If you’re a football lover, this is a place you won’t want to miss.

Being the foodies that we are, we couldn’t skip the Municipal Market. Here you can find exotic fruits, fresh vegetables, meats, spices and even restaurants. We went there right around the lunch hour to try the famed mortadella sandwich.

From there, we visited Sao Paulo Cathedral. We only learned this after our visit, but there’s a crypt you can visit.

Next up we headed to the neighbourhood of Liberdade, which has the largest Japanese community in the world outside of Japan. We decided to hit up a sushi buffet for some food!

That evening we met up with our Brazilian friends, who took us out for a night on the town.

That morning we visited Pinacoteca do Estado, which is a cool art museum that focuses on works by Brazilian artist or works with Brazilian subject matter.

After that we headed over to Parque da Luz. This park is right next to the museum and it has a lot of interesting sculptures scattered about.

Sao Paulo’s Teatro Municipal first opened in 1911. The Martinelli building is 30 stories high and it was the first skyscraper in South America.

And that’s a quick look at how we spent 2 days in Sao Paulo. We hope you enjoyed this guide and that it gave you some ideas on how to tackle South America’s largest city. As always, if you have any other suggestions of fun things to do in Sao Paulo, feel free to share those with us in the comments below.

The Top 5 Things to do in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil

Things to Know Before Visiting Rio de Janeiro

Things to Know Before Visiting Rio de Janeiro

Is Rio de Janeiro safe is one of the most common questions i get asked. We always hear on the news that these countries are dangerous and that there are a lot of political issues. As long as you are careful, and don’t do anything that you shouldn’t do. Technically it is not as safe as Europe, Australia, United States or other first world countries, but it’s just about being street smart.

In Rio de Janeiro, Copacabana is the most famous place in Rio de Janeiro, but I don’t necessarily recommend that you stay here. Overall don’t walk around with expensive stuff on you and don’t walk on the streets at night.

Today it’s quite easy to get a visa to visit Brasil. Uber is legal here and is widely used in Brasil which cost me approximately 40 usd to get from the airport to the beach.

If you want to have internet or a phone while you travel in Brasil or Rio de Janeiro, I recommend that you buy a sim card at the airport, it’s easier than to do that in any kind of store.

The most popular time to visit Brasil is in February, when the biggest carnaval takes place in Rio de Janeiro. During high season, prices are much higher and everything is more complicated. Brasil is south of the equator so it’s summer there during the “normal” winter. Which means that high season is from December - March. It gets really hot during summer here so ensure you get a room with AC as it get way too hot otherwise.

Let me know if there is any other countries or cities you wanna hear about, I have travelled to most countries in the world and keep doing so, so you can just comment below if you have any questions concerning any country or city in the world. I am happy to share some of my life as a wandering trader.
