My trip from the starting point to Chao Chao with the most important details and prices

 My trip to Brazil, where I found myself in front of a travel agency, and I found a reservation on the KLM Royal Dutch Airlines bound for Sao Paulo, and from there we managed to go to Rio where we booked a hotel on Copacabana beach.

A whole week and we are trying to complete all the necessary papers to apply for a visa to Brazil. Our problem is that we need a passport and a work identification letter certified by the Chamber of Commerce, an account statement from the bank and personal photos, in addition to filling out the visa form.

Guys, pay attention:

In the embassy, ​​there is an unnatural strictness in terms of completing the requests. The employee there asked me for the exact address of the hotel (the hotel reservation confirmation paper, which I rejected on the pretext that the paper does not explain precisely and in detail the address of the hotel in which street it is and its phone number).

Also, the embassy wants two photos of my beautiful face, not one. “The embassy wants a copy of the passport.” This was not mentioned on the website. Their working hours are from 10 in the morning to 1 in the afternoon.

How will you plan your trip in terms of prices (tickets - hotels - living - transportation) and how to have a very clear picture of the country you will visit (safety - people - weather - tourist places)?

The requirements are:

When I decided to travel to Brazil, I had a confused picture of prices and how to exchange, and about airlines and which ones are better, but the picture gradually became clear through the use of online booking sites via the Internet, writing the itinerary and the site will give you the ticket price + number of stops + taxes.

So, the first step is to define the itinerary.

Note: Try to book another luxury airline (Emirates, Qatar or British Airways) and you will notice the price difference + luxury.

Now I have decided to travel on KLM, and of course I did not find a flight to my desired destination Rio de Janeiro, my trip will be to Sao Paulo and from there to Rio, which is an opportunity for me to try a domestic Brazilian flight to Rio, so I decided to book a hotel in Rio 12 nights starting after My arrival in Brazil one day, I mean my first day in Rio I will take the order of booking it myself, and the rest of the days the travel agency took care of the reservation!

Now, after you have determined the itinerary and booked the hotel, you should have a clear picture of the country you are going to visit, and as they say ask an experienced one!

There are a number of foreign sites that provide this service, and the best of them is travelpayouts. This site offers you discussions and opinions of travelers to all countries in the world, and includes almost everything from airlines to wines! Just ask and let the experts answer!

I benefited from this site, the names of the hotels on the sea in Rio, the level of service in the hotel, the cleanliness of the rooms, the reception, the quality of the service, the distance of the hotel from the beach and others. !

There are other sites, but this site remains the best in my opinion, and if you are one of the people who do not know English, then you should use this site, Arab travelers, a very professional site that has no equivalent in Arabic, there are many experts and experimenters, I benefited from this site from the experiences of Members who traveled to Brazil and had me in their photo reports a free virtual trip!

Assuming you now have a passport and Visa, tickets and hotel reservations, what is left for you?

There is a good service on Google, which is maps. Personally, I like to walk if the distance is not more than 3 km round trip. This service gives you the distance and map of any store or (shop) you want around your place of residence, for example, I live in Luxor Hotel and I want Internet cafes I want to know the distance from my residential store to these stores. Simply go to Google Maps, and as in the picture, write your address and also write the required store: It will show you a map divided into two halves, the right section will show you a map showing your location with the symbol A and the internet shops with the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4 and so on The left section contains the names of these cafes, as well as the distance in kilometers from your location. Thus, there will be a clear picture and daily program of where you want to go and how far away, and before you book the hotel, you can make sure, through this service, that there are shops around the hotel as a matter of reassurance. I think this will give us a good idea of ​​some helpful sites for arranging your trip.
