Setting sail from Rio de Janeiro

The carnival capital of the world, Rio de Janeiro needs little introduction. We can think of few cities in the world that are able to compete when it comes to location: hugging the beautiful sandy shore and surrounded by jungle-clad islands and mountains, including the iconic Corcovado, the setting for Brazil's most vibrant city is simply breathtaking. Strut your stuff on Copacabana beach, shimmy to the rhythms of samba and bossa nova, or just drink in the view from the feet of Christ the Redeemer - Rio is truly a destination to be savoured.

Don't miss

A visit to Christ the Redeemer for the unbeatable views over the city.

Arriving in Papeete

If you are in search of paradise, don't expect it to be easy to get there! It's a long old haul to get to Papeete, the capital of French Polynesia. And once you are there, Papeete itself is by no means the most magical spot - you need to venture forth to see the other islands, and luxuriate in the turquoise lagoons, white sand beaches fringed with palm trees, rugged mountain peaks and coral reefs. Expensive and remote, these islands have maintained their uncommercial magic, with excellent hotels and a warm Polynesian welcome everywhere you go.

Our tip

Don’t bother with local currency – all the local shops and markets will take US dollars. And take aqua shoes, impossible to walk in the sea otherwise.

Ways to make it better
Belmond Copacabana Palace, Rio de Janeiro

Our favourite hotel in Rio

We like the Belmond Copacabana Palace – go for the upper floor suites for great views over the ocean.

Tijuca forest, Rio de Janeiro

Around Rio

The extraordinary thing is that right by the city is the Tijuca Forest, great for a four wheel drive tour in acres of lush mountainous national park.
