The well connected world is changing minds all over the Globe; we can notice this in our own cities every time we see a foreigner. The traditional tourist is going to different countries and different cities not just wanting to get good pictures at nice buildings and parks. These tourists are changing, they want to get in contact with locals, they want to learn the language not because need to eat or move all over some place. Sharing is a good word to describe what this new visitor is looking for.
Rio de Janeiro is growing faster and faster. Economically, culturally and because of that more and more people are coming here to learn and share our culture.
The After Dark Network Rio wants to show you, share with you, this new face of Rio; the other side of the City. We will give more than names and addresses of places where you can have fun, eat, take good pictures and sleep. ADN Rio will give you guidance.
Let’s start talking about this Other Side. When you start planning your vacation and Rio is an option, a big screen comes to your mind: Carnival, Copacabana and Sugar Loaf. After that you start wondering how much it will cost to be there for five or seven days and in the end, you maybe will realize it is a bit expensive and stay in a hostel instead of a hotel which is a good option. We can help you with that too, but we can do better than just help to book a hostel and get a transfer from the airport, etc. The North side of the City consists of districts where you can find good services for good prices. Have you ever heard about these neighborhoods: Tijuca, Grajaú and Vila Isabel? Almost a hundred percent of chances you have not. The only difference between these neighborhoods and Copacabana, Ipanema and Leblon is: There are not beaches over there and this is not a problem because you are looking for more. You will find all types of restaurants, pubs, banks, very good transportation system, along with good services. Another interesting point is you will pay less because the North Side is not considered “Gringos Area”, which means you will enjoy the City and will pay a fair price for that.
We will help you have good time and in the end to figure that you are more than a visitor; you make part of the City.
