^ That's correct. No need na mag apply pa for VISA. :)

I read that Qatar Airways is offering Manila-Qatar-Brazil (RDJ or Sao Paulo) already. It's the most convenient since it does not require a transit visa.

I believe you won't need a transit VISA naman talaga for as long as you don't leave the airport. So kahit Amsterdam pa yung layover, if hindi ka naman lalabas ng airport, di mo kailangan mag-apply ng transit VISA. Hassle nga lang if matagal yung stop like more than 10 hours.

We're going to Brazil for the World Cup in 2014 but we'll be flying from France.

Yung route na gusto ko for next year:

Manila--HK, HK--Frankfurt, Frankfurt--Rio

Para wala nang transit visa needed. Kaso parang ang mahal ng fares. Any cheaper routes?

ALEXANDREA, if I remember correctly, one of the airlines that offer cheapest flights to either Sao Pau or Rio is United. Route is MNL-US-BR. Approximately 95k roundtrip.

Let me know if you're sure about going. Sama ko. I've been looking for someone to go with for the longest time.

Though, my dad is discouraging me na pumunta dun. Madumi and delikado daw. Actually, he said na panget daw dun. He's been to BR like a million times. Kidding. Pero madalas sya don and other South American countries. Mag-Argentina na lang daw ako.

Sis Frozen Toes, I'm more inclined to go to Tbilisi, Georgia kasi medyo namamahalan pa ako sa Brazil fares, parang gusto kong ilagay na lang yung pera sa Israel/Europe trip ko in the future. But target ko next year is to go to non-Asian country next year na di na need ng visa. Yung Georgia, nasa 52,000++ all in na, round trip from Manila to Tbilisi via Qatar Airways. Sama ka sa Georgia? :)

Pero sige, if matuloy ako sa Brazil, will let you know!

Ladies, just came back from another fabulous trip! This time, Rio de Janeiro...

My 3 day IT:
day 1: checked in at Porto Bay Copacabana: absolutely wonderful hotel! nice brekkie spread, rooftop pool/bar with views of the beach and christ, comp. havaianas, balcony with ocean view, friendly staff.
-watched soccer match flamengo vs palmeiras: super fun! Flamengo fans are hardcore, I must say... it was a draw, thank god! Otherwise, the fans must've killed each other LOL! FYI: Maracana is under renovation until next year for the olympics.
 day 2: promenade along copacabana beach, then drank caipirinhas at one of the kiosks along the beach. alcohol at 0700am, too early but still pretty awesome!
-joined Brazil Expedition tour of Rio. Our guide was Murilio, loved his NY accent, funny and very informative. We were able to hit the ff: san conrado beach where the handgliders land, tijuca forest, christ statue, santa teresa, lunch at lapa, then the lapa steps. Best tour in Rio IMO.
-Sugarloaf mountain, stayed here until sunset, so worth it! Cable carx2 so definitely not for those with fear of heights
-dinner at a churrascaria place. OMG meats galore, cheap too!
-after dinner drinks at the hotel's rooftop bar
day 3: Souvenir shopping at Zona Sul and copacabana market
-snack at a juice bar
Havaianas shopping at MG Bazaar, dirt cheap!
Lunch at Garota de Ipanema (touristy but food was so good! Highly recommend getting the picanha, pricey but good for 2-3 pax)
Promenade along Ipanema beach... gorgeous people everywhere! Watchd beach soccer and hot bodies LOL
Strolled along the lagoa rodrigo de freitas
-biked along Avenida Atlantica with the locals

Loved Rio to bits! Prices were a bit high but not as bad as, say Iceland or Dubai. Hotel 300 USD/night, havaianas about half off US prices, churrascaria meal with wine about 40USD, taxis are cheap, a nice lunch for 2 is about 40 USD with drinks, caipirinha's about 3.50 USD small glass, tour was about 50 USD. The prices are comparable to NY/San Fo, give or take, depending on location.
Weren't able to go out at night that much but I heard Lapa and Santa Teresa are the places to be on a Fri or Sat, a lot of bars and restos in the area.
Brazilians are pretty friendly, they love the beach and of course, football! The city itself has ugly areas (favelas),but there's also plenty of nice areas like ipanema, leblon, and san conrado.
Must eat foods/drinks:meat, esp picanha, shrimp empanadas, coxinha, feijoada,caipirinha, skol beer, fruit juices, acai, guarana drink, etc.
Leave your expensive duds, jewelry, watch, etc at home, brazilians are casual and laid back, no need to be dressy, except maybe if you're going to a nice resto or club.
Hope this helps!

I thought natuloy na yung trip mo sis  , 3 years old na kasi tong thread :) i want to visit Rio din kaso sabi ng friend kong Portuguese medyo delikado din dun, parang Manila din, may mga lugar na magulo 0_o

Im planning to go to Maldives, Fiji, Tanzania or Kenya, visa is issued upon arrival din.

^Just like any other city, you just need to be cautious on the areas you'll explore. No need to be paranoid about being mugged/kidnapped/or whatever preconceptions you hear about Rio. Would be a shame if these things would hinder anyone from visiting this awesome city. Just be smart and vigilant, no flashy duds or jewelry, avoid the favelas and dodgy areas, join group tours if you're really paranoid lol, and just enjoy yourself!

Sis polymath2012, oo nga three years na ito pero di pa rin matuloy tuloy! :( Gusto ko kasi ng kasama, masyadong malayo ang Brazil for me para tahakin mag-isa. And dapat pagplanuhan kasi gusto kong ikutin na ang South America pag andun nako.
