    Bought a Balenciaga designer bag. While busy buying the bag, I, again, accidentally dropped my Fendi bucket hat. Although, it was difficult to converse as I dont have a portugues knowledge, was able to go to cuatomer service. And lo and behold, my hat was there. Thank you so much.

    This Shopping Centre is close to Copacabana beach and only a taxi ride away. The decor is easy on the eye and there are loads of shops that cater to different clientele according to your budget. There are high street shops e.g Zara, Forever 21, local designer shops and a very good food court as well. It is also family friendly as well and quite interesting place to window shop. If you need to change money, there is an exchange there as well and you can get taxis right outside. Recommended if visiting Rio!

    Felt the market was s must see in Rio and it was just as expected, busy and vibrant. No pickpocket problems, which we had been warned about

    You see these stalls that come to life in the late afternoon and early evening.

    Paintings, bags, maps fridge magnets, clothes from tee shirts to football shirts. All kinds of souvenirs and you might be able to haggle a price.

    You will notice the same or similar items will pop up in other stalls further down.

    It can get a bit hectic in the evening and we did visit it a few times and purchased some items.

    This mall is located in a middle class neighborhood near the train station and the beach. Well located. It has many floors and on the last floor , there is a balcony where you can see a fanstastic view of Botafogo. The backdrop of Botafogo beach is terrific!! There are many bars nearby where you can have fun with your friends.

    This place is great for street shopping. Picking up various souvenirs of Rio from here was a good idea. It is all so colourful and festive.

    We visited this municipal market on the outskirts of Rio, for the Flower and Plants section, which was varied, extensive in range and an amazing experience. Nowhere in the world would you see such a wholesale market for tropical plants including orchids, bromeliads, etc. The market is large and spread over 100,000 square metres.
    On weekends, particularly from afternoon onwards the place is brimming with locals - there is music and a number of restaurants and pricing substantially lower than in the city. A bit far but easily accessible by Uber if you are worried about safety.

    There were lots of treasures for travellers to explore and bring home. The prices were fair and what I enjoyed was no haggling or pressure to buy. We always buy a painting on vacation and there were so many to choose from- we stored at many different booths before choosing the one that was right for us.
    Beautiful and friendly merchants!

    We drove an hour from Ipanema hoping to see some cool markets, not so. I would not recommend venturing to Mercadao De Madureira if you are a tourist or do not know the area well. We did not feel at all safe so did not get out of the vehicle.

    This local market is located around the sides of the Praca Nossa Senhora da Paz just outside the entrance to the Nossa Senhora da Paz metro station in Ipanema.

    The market only operates on a Friday morning and whilst it is relatively small there are a good number of stalls selling some beautifully fresh fruit (some of which we hadn't seen before), vegetables, eggs, mushrooms plus some fish and meat. There were a good number of locals buying produce and we could see why.

    There were also a few stalls selling hand crafted souvenirs.

    Nice venue for expos, well situated in the heart of downtown, easy access by underground. Not large but adequate for art expositions, worth watching because some nice activities may happen there.

    It looks deceivable small form the Avenida das Americas, but it is larger on the sidestreet. Nice movie theather, mainly room number 6. Great seats, screen and sound. Good restaurants, for different tastes and $. It has a lot of nice stores, a good and clean environent and parking. A good surprise. The only drawback was the limited number of wheelchairs available.

    Small museum that today had a gorgeous, vibrant exhibit of carnival costumes, head dresses and floats. Great gift shop with high quality handicrafts made by indigenous artisans. Only issue is that you need to buy items using a money transfer app that only works for Brazilian banks so we couldn’t purchase anything.
