Revel in Rio

Harry is well-known for his fondness of a night out, and where better than Rio de Janeiro? With a legendary nightlife, Harry would find no shortage of entertainment in the carnival capital of the world.

Dine with a difference in Sao Paulo

If Harry is looking to sample the culinary delights that Brazil has to offer, he could do worse than the A Figueira Rubaiyat restaurant in Sao Paulo.

Not just any old dining establishment, it is built entirely around a fig tree. The restaurant sells some of the finest grilled meat in South America, making it a must visit venue for anyone with a good appetite and appreciation of novel dining.

Harry’s happiness in Salvador

While he always seems to be in good form, Salvador could be an ideal spot for Harry. The city is known as the Brazilian capital of happiness and with lots of parties and jovial locals, Harry would be as happy as a pig in muck in this environment.

The city gained this title due to the relentless parties and famous street carnival that rages through its streets..

Admire the surroundings in Brasilia

With football and partying gtipping the country, we expect Harry to enjoy both as much as possible during his week-long stay.

If he is looking to do something a little ‘touristy’ on his downtime, the avant-garde capital of Brazil is considered to be a modern architectural marvel.

Exploring by foot will highlight impressive artistic structures throughout the city.

The Templo da Boa Vontade and Brasília Cathedral are just a couple examples of the contemporary constructions that are spread throughout the city for tourists to visit.

Explore Chile’s wine route

Harry will be visiting Chile during his trip to South America and a wine tour would be likely to interest Harry.

Chile has known about wine long before Argentina has and offers them at a fraction of the price. The wine train is a pretty popular option where you can start sampling the local red’s, followed by hitting up the wineries on arrival.

We know Harry likes a tipple and he will do well to taste some finer wine than from this part of the world.

Whether Harry pays any attention to our voice remains to be seen, and below are five highlights from his official visit.

On a busy schedule in South America, here are some of the highlights of his official visit.

1. The Samba Boys

The tour will kick-off with the prince watching the hosts take on Cameroon. Brazil will qualify for the last 16 with a win or a draw against Cameroon.

They go into the final round above Mexico on goal difference, so will need to maintain or improve their goals record in relation to the Mexicans to finish ahead of them, should Mexico match their result.

2. Visit to Sao Paolo drug district

Harry will also visit the Sao Paulo drug district know as crack land or Carcolandia, to learn about a project to help users beat their addictions.

3. Joining patients in hospital in Brasilia

Later today Harry will join patients with neurological problems canoeing on a lake as they undergo rehab at a hospital in the capital Brasilia.

4. Ayrton Senna institute

The Prince visit the Ayrton Senna institute in Sao Paulo to learn how it is using education to fight social exclusion and inequality

5. Busy in Chile

During his first full day in the Chilean capital of Santiago, Harry will call on President Michelle Bachelet before visiting a local nursery school to chat to the youngsters, then travel to a military base to meet officers and soldiers.

The following day, the Prince will travel to coastal city of Valparaiso to meet members of its British community and learn about the city's volunteer fire-fighters.
