Holidaymakers should visit Rio 'right now'

Article content

22 October 2009

Now is a great time for anyone thinking about visiting Brazil to book a holiday, it has been suggested.

Steven Chew, owner of the Brazilian Beach House Company, was quoted by the Daily Mail as stating that Rio de Janeiro in particular is attractive at present.

With the city having recently been awarded the 2016 Olympic Games, which will come just two years after Brazil hosts the football World Cup finals, the paper explained that there is more to the South American country than preconceptions about carnivals and beaches.

And Mr Chew highlighted its "vibrancy and energy", adding: "Rio is revamping and becoming a world class destination. It's a really fantastic place to visit right now."

The views from Corcovado, home to the Christ the Redeemer statue, were highlighted by the news source as "staggering", while Sugar Loaf Mountain was also recommended.

Glauco Chris Fuzinatto, director at the Brazilian Tourist Office for UK and Ireland, recently noted that a growing number of people are choosing Brazil for golfing holidays.ADNFCR-2704-ID-19421961-ADNFCR
