"No hats or shorts in the center" Rio de Janeiro Local Custom Tip by hmoitta

Rio de Janeiro Local Customs: 289 reviews and 273 photos


If you go to the city center and do not want to be seen as a tourist, don't wear shorts nor hats. The center is where many people work in Rio. In some government buildings you can even get in if you are in shorts.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
