If you ask most people, they will say that number one thing to do when you are in Rio is to go to the Christ Redeemer. But not for me, not for me, i have a different idea.
If you ask me, i will say: Skip the Christ Redeemer and Sugarloaf Mountain and take the heli ride.
Why? Because those area are super crowded with tourists and you cannot take proper pictures. Pardon my silly excuses.
I’d rather spend a little more money but get a much better view and pictures. And if you calculate it carefully, it does not cost much different from visiting both of them.
See my other post from my heli ride above Rio de Janeiro and you can decide by yourself.
