Sugarloaf Mountain - Pão de Açucar, Rio de Janeiro: 127 reviews and 224 photos
Let's face it, you have seen enough pictures and post-cards of the Sugarloaf to recognise it the minute you arrive in Rio de Janeiro. So, how can you ignore it? Do what everyone does - at your first available moment, take the cable-car ride to the top.
The view of Rio, seen from there, is certainly dazzling. From all angles. Wow.
There are some places to spend more money up there, like a restaurant and some souvenir shops for you to linger but the best is to find a bench and simply take in the view ALL AROUND. Best to go alone and savour the view. View is incredible. It is right there for all to see. You need not have another person to share.
People have recommended that it is best to go in the evening for sunset. I went at mid-day and the view appeared rather smoggy.
