Is the second largest city in Brazil, located on the South Atlantic coast. Rio is famous for its breathtaking landscape, its laid-back beach culture and its annual carnival.

The harbor of Rio de Janeiro is comprised of a unique entry from the ocean that makes it appear to be the mouth of a river. Additionally, the harbor is surrounded by spectacular geographic features including Sugar Loaf mountain at (1,296 feet), Corcovado Peak at (2,310 feet), and the hills of Tijuca at (3,350 feet). These features work together to collectively make the harbor one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.

Rio de Janeiro is Brazil's primary tourist attraction and resort. It receives the most visitors per year of any city in South America with 2.82 million international tourists a year. The city sports world-class hotels, shopping, and restaurants. There are alot of beaches for walking and enjoying the outdoors if your looking for some exercise.

Besides being the host city for the 2014 world cup, the International Olympic committee selected Rio de Janeiro to host the 2016 Summer Olympics.

Rio de Janeiro is one of the cities that I really want to visit in Brazil someday. I read a lot of good reviews about the place and I believe that it is really one of the best places that is worthy to visit and top everyone's bucketlist! I searched about Rio de Janeiro and I have found out that it is really a good place if you want to explore and try out new activities. Rio is also rich in good sceneries, so if you enjoy taking lots of photos, then Rio is really the best place for you. I can't wait to go here and experience the beauty of Rio.

This place is located in Brazil. This has been known because of its famous beaches, Copacabana and Ipanema. It is near the statue of Christ the redeemer. In this place, people are celebrating the the annual Rio Carnival and it is the world's biggest carnival. The name Rio De Janeiro means “River of January” and it was from the wrong belief that the bay people were sailing into was the mouth of a river. Anyways, from 1763 to 1960, Rio was the capital of Brazil but replaced with brasilia.
