it's always my dream to visit this city like for a week and I would like to ask you guys a modest but nice place to stay which is clean, safe and close to the beach and restaurants. I would liked to think I'm a shoe-string budget. thanks any help.

Brazil itself is an expensive place. Several neighborhoods close to the beaches are clean and safe(for brazilian standards), for ex: Leblon, Ipanema and Copacabana.

But you can stay in other places and take the subway to go to the beach, like Flamengo, Catete and Botafogo. These places are less expensive but still clean, safe and close to restaurants.

More great pictures.

The third photo in this set is of a figure made by Anthony Gormley - it has been taken from an installation on Crosby Beach in Liverpool, England - called 'Another Place' ( see my Liverpool thread).
There were originally 100 figures just like this - but some had to be removed in order for the city council to gain permanent planning permission for the installation. The 'spares' have since turned up at various locations around the world including London, Oxford, and now Rio!

Excellent views from the top spots of this great city!
BUT, I've seen on Google StreetView a lot of Rio and I've noticed that as you move further the beach, the poverty and the dirt take place, it's a pity that Brasil has so many poor people living in cramped neighborhoods.
