Celebrate 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro 3 mars 2014
Par Citizen John - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
Unlike many serious guide books, this one has only 272 pages and is made to carry around while using it. One thing that makes this book different is it's approach to travel. The National Geographic Society is a nonprofit organization with a mission to increase geographic knowledge while promoting conservation. This is a real geographer's guide to Rio de Janiero.

One of the first things everybody will want to do is visit the beach because those beaches are so famous. I haven't been there but now I know how badly I would have signaled that I'm from here, not there. It's considered manly to sit directly on the sand and unmanly to sit on a beach towel. Bringing lots of stuff to the beach is in bad form and will let everybody know you're a foreigner.

I like this travel guide because it has maps of the salient places a tourist will normally visit along with explanations for why one does or doesn't do certain things. This is important because Rio de Janiero has such a unique culture with its own way of doing things.

An Intelligent And Diverse Travel Guide 4 mars 2014
Par G.I Gurdjieff - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
I have visited Rio twice in the past six years and have had the advantage of having my own personal guide both times, my brother-in-law. My "guide" had resided in Rio, at different times, for nearly two decades and travels there a couple of times each year.
In viewing this guide, I considered my interests which steer toward nature and the terrific beaches, mixed with shopping and unique dining experiences. For the new visitor, this book does a great job of breaking down what Rio has to offer by providing short yet succinct descriptions, maps, and pictures. It also provides good tips on food and lodging and fairly average information regarding transportation, etc.
Overall, this is a good planning guide. However, my one gripe concerns crime. Rio has its share of pick pockets, etc.
I'm not sure any guide is going to provide enough information to guarantee a traveler's safety. On this guide, it scores 5* on straightforward travel information regarding the area and 2* on safety preparedness.

Very nice relaxing, conversational approach to help the traveler make decisions in a more casual manner ... 9 mars 2014
Par D. Fowler - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
I'm one of those indecisive people who has a difficult time deciding where I want to go when I go on a trip. Not a trip to a nearby state, but rather one of those "once in a lifetime" type trips to a faraway destination. Sometimes guidebooks can be overwhelming. I do like a lot of information, but the National Geographic Traveler was a nice, nice change of pace in comparison ... a lot of information, but not a textbook-like tome. Rio de Janeiro simply appears to be a welcoming place just looking at the cover. The photographs, as expected, were top notch and plentiful. Just flipping through the pages I found several places I wanted to stop a "visit" a while before diving in.

National Geographic's approach to travel is more casual and the writing conversational in nature. Come on in, sit down, and I'll tell you why you might want to head to Rio was the impression I received. For example, when reading about Copacabana Palace there was a fascinating back story about Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers' dance on the terrace in the film "Flying Down to Rio." In reality, the dance was performed in a studio, but it was a fun bit of trivia to read. Perhaps this is what made the book more into a fun read than a travel guide. This is a perfect way for the armchair traveler to enjoy visiting place around the world.

The Rio de Janeiro traveler has numerous informative sidebars that add to the experience. You can learn about Beteco Hopping and will be armed with several suggestions. There are a lot of "Insider Tip" notes that I find quite interesting and helpful. It's nice to read tips before going anywhere, much easier than asking around once you hit your destination. There are a lot of insets that have walking maps, something of high interest to those who like a close up look at a particular area. It wasn't until I hit the back of the book that I found more guide-like information on shopping, hotels, planning the trip, etc. Nothing says you can purchase more than one guide book and I usually do. This is a nice one for first impressions and narrowing down what you really want to focus one. This is a perfect book to become acquainted with Rio de Janeiro!

Neither this nor that 13 avril 2014
Par Margaret Picky - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
This is an interesting guide on what to see and do in Rio de Janeiro and its environs and it certainly piques interest in travelling there. It opens with an exhortation to “travel with the eyes open,” promoting “geotourism” as a modern concept in opposition to “tourism.”

A good introduction to the history and culture is followed by equally helpful chapters divided by neighborhood or geographic area. There is a short section with information on lodging, dining, transportation, and other practical information.

The content seems to have been compressed to fit in a guidebook format, as if what was planned to be coffee-table book has been reformatted at the last minute. The photographs definitely convey the sense of the place and its people, the micromaps are helpful, and the content is descriptive, but it is difficult to enjoy this as a book for reading and it is not as useful as something like a Michelin Green Guide to have in the hand while travelling.
Exquisitely written and designed guide to modern-day Rio 20 mars 2014

"National Geographic Traveler: Rio de Janeiro"
(2013)
. . .

I am a new convert to the National Geographic travel guides: I like their well-written, no-nonsense, historically based writing, which reflects the editorial tone of the National Geographic magazine, taken into the real world of tourism. They are factual, but not stuffy, and perhaps more important (for me at least) not as obsessed with trying to sound cool and hip, in a Lonely Planet kind of way. Trendy info about cybercafes, nightclubs and LGBT travel issues is replaced by solid presentations about political and art history, drawing from a wealth of knowledge at N.Geo. I really enjoy the editorial tone of these books -- they are more informative and less gossippy. As a person who has little interest in clubbing, drinking, hooking up or staying up all night, these crisp, friendly essays on neighborhoods, art galleries, etc., are most welcome. Also the photographs and layout are superb, as you would expect.

This guide to the city of Rio de Janeiro is particularly strong, providing concise profiles of numerous neighborhoods, including a sense of where each is in its development -- on the decline, on the rise, etc. -- and straight-to-the-point recommendations for the best attractions each neighborhood offers. (There is a tendency in some entries to minimize the crime and urban menace that plagues much of the city, but I suppose it's so much in the background, you just have to take it as a given when traveling to Brazil. For some areas they are more explicit, though, cautioning travelers to avoid certain alleys, or to come on days of the week when there will be more people on the street...) Excellent entries on Brazil's ever-dynamic art scene, colonial history, and the explosive consumerism of modern-day Rio. All in all, though, this is an exquisite travel guide, with gorgeous photographs and sharply written text, a sure inspiration for anyone thinking about taking a trip to Brazil.
