Rio de Janeiro

Our scrapbook notes about Rio de Janeiro

A mix of beaches, beautiful city views and grungy urban suburbs, makes Rio a city that is in need of exploring by more backpackers. South America is apparently always  popular amongst backpackers, but I honestly don't know any that have actually ventured there.

Rio offers ocean, city, rain-forest and mountains in once, obviously a travellers' haven. The city has a lot to offer in terms of culture, things to do and sights to see. Rio has a 'samba' atmosphere about it, and a trip to Rio means you'll experience Brazilian culture at it's finest.
