9 reasons to visit brazil
1/9 Rio carnival
Why go? It’s the world’s greatest party – and you’re invited.
What’s on? Join thousands of Cariocas (Rio residents) and up to 80,000 spectators in a six-day frenzy of dancing, music and celebration and you’ll be guaranteed the experience of a lifetime.
The whole city erupts in impromptu and organised booty–shaking, climaxing in the Sambadrome parade, where scantily-clad beauty queens from the nation’s elite Samba schools compete for the prestigious crown of ‘Carnival Champion’. Probably the most famous – and most fun – reason to visit Brazil.
