Rio de Janeiro never fails to impress us with its modern outlook that reflects its progression through the times of yore.The historic sites, sparkling beaches, green belts and jubilant attitude of the locals embrace the tourists to the world where heaven meets the earth. If Ronaldo played football at the Maracanã stadium, then Christ the Redeemer puts Rio on the world map. Rio’s carnival with its effervescent samba dancers jiggling their hips attracts thousands of tourists around the world. The rain-forests, museums, beaches and the glitz of the city have made Rio what it is today – Brazil’s top-notch tourist attraction.
Rio de Janeiro’s most famous symbol, the Christ the Redeemer statue, commissioned for Brazil’s 1922 centenary and located on the summit of Corcovado mountain, is a great place to get your bearings. To your south you’ll see the Zona Sul, edged by the beaches of Leblon and Ipanema. To your east, Sugar Loaf is on a spit of land jutting out into Guanabara Bay and overlooking glamorous Copacabana. To the north is Centro, Rio’s historic centre.
