2- Take the metro

Rio de Janeiro has an efficient, clean and safe metro system. And when you visit Rio de Janeiro, be sure to use the metro.

3- Random crossing of pedestrians

In Rio de Janeiro, it is common to see pedestrians randomly crossing the street without obeying traffic lights. Although this is not comparable to Asian cities, it is found in abundance in the city of Rio de Janeiro. And when you cross the street, watch out for the fast motorbikes.

4- Take the taxi from the right place

If you are at the airport and want to take a taxi instead of the bus, go directly to the departure area, you will pay less than if you go to the arrival area. Most likely the driver will not be able to speak to you in English, so make sure you know some phrases in Portuguese, or provide him with the address written in Portuguese. In general, most Brazilians are not very good at English, and they prefer to deal in Portuguese, so make sure you learn it.

5- Enjoy the delicious Brazilian cuisine

Brazilian cuisine is very famous, and is famous for its fruits and tapioca, in addition to feijoada dishes, grills and other delicacies that the wonderful city of Rio de Janeiro abounds in. You may have certain eating habits, but it is okay to act like the locals and eat fresh fruit juice for breakfast and eat street food for lunch. It is cheap and delicious, as it only costs $ 15 per day, so you can save a large part of your budget. Another way to save is the option to pay according to the weight of the dish. You can also learn about the secrets of Brazilian cuisine by attending a cooking course.

6- Do not drink tap water

Locals do not drink tap water, as bottled water is available everywhere. But be sure to use water bottles that can be recycled, in order to help preserve the environment.

7- Withdraw cash at the airport

When you visit Rio de Janeiro, you'll enjoy great food and other activities for cheap. You can spend 10 days in Rio de Janeiro for an amount ranging between $200 and $300, not including accommodation. In Rio de Janeiro, you can use a credit card anywhere, but getting cash can be a bit difficult because some banks may not accept credit cards. So, be sure to withdraw an amount of money at the airport, and avoid changing currency at the airport because the exchange rate is not good.

8- Adhere to basic security and safety rules

Rio de Janeiro is a dangerous city, so you must follow rules to keep yourself safe and sound, such as keeping your luggage and not walking around alone at night.
