its a city that hosts events every year, the nerds are safe
Crime rate is indeed among the highest of the world, but Rio has hosted the biggest and most traditional events in the world, and it went fine.
Major atendees wont even leave the hotel and that small area there, and the maximum they will head is to the Christ, and these areas are safe for tourists in the day light. Also, probably more than 80% of the attendees will be brazilians, and they have to know how to deal with Rio.
First of, I'm not brasilian and never been to Rio.
But from what I've heard its very regional on where it is save and where not.
So if everybody travelling to see the Major gets proper information about no go areas (for tourists) and behaviour advise they should be fine. If they follow that advise obviously.
But FIFA world cup 2014 worked out fine, so I guess the major should'nt be a big problem in that regard.
the one in France will probably be worse, there's a reason tourism in Paris is dead after the pandemic, the only reason it's happening in France is because Macron is desperate to get people back to Paris he is trying to buy a company that will send mentally ill children there who will probably be at most risk but also have the lowest expectations of the city.
crime rate isnt much different from atlanta so i think it will be okey
You will be robbed twice a day in Rio. Don't take expensive devices like laptops, cameras etc. Don't wear designer clothes like gucci etc. And you will be safe.
Rio is probably safe, idk why people think Brazil is a warzone.
same with usa people scared of getting shot.
Why Brazil so criminal tho? just don't break the law mens
just use the following route: hotel -> taxi/uber -> major arena -> taxi/uber -> hotel. And be sure to close the windows if you will be using your phone
Dude, Rio is chill, stop being snowflakes. Same crime rate as Atlanta, which nobody cares about their safety there.
Just don’t walk on the streets by night and don’t go to favelas.
The touristic areas are safe but as every big city, pick pocketing happens a lot so be smart.
Just don't go up hills and hide your tech
Probably still safer than in the States
relax is a major on rio
not NA major
Isn't even the most dangerous place in Brazil. If we had an ESL Bahia I would be concerned.
Damn "fuck around and find out", so keep to your tour route and it'll be fine.
First I want to know: Is you going to travel to Rio? No? So stop the xenophibic comments. If you is coming, then take care of yourself and just don't be a idiot. Here is not a jungle, but is really dangerous for dumb and lost tourists.
lmao funny coming from an American
i hope they don't (at least) hostilize thorin!!!
some will go there as boys and leave as men))))
Couldnt you make an original thread instead of something Ive read 50+ times here?
just dont go alone and whatever you do, dont look up brazilian cartel videos.
I feel safer in Rio than near some American school
sure, they should do it in DETROIT
As long as you aren't a moron and get too drunk that you can't think straight or walk into a favela you'll be fine
better than Dallas and Detroit
i'm more concerned about the blast paris event, cuz paris is filthy when it comes to robbery and nerds getting mugged off.
