Business casual—Samba Chic!
Brazilians, even in the major cities, dress casually outside the office. None of the country's top restaurants insist on collar and tie although the occasional club does.
Ladies should remember to pack a jacket or shawl when coming to Brazil as some of the buildings and restaurants can be a little over enthusiastic with the air conditioning.
When packing, keep in mind that cities like Rio are big, fashionable, cosmopolitan cities and not a small tourist resorts. If you forget to bring some item of clothing with you, you will certainly be able to find what you forgot in any of the big shopping centers.
Electricity current is 220V/50Hz. European-style two-pin plugs are standard.

Tipping in Brazil is typically not expected nor given. At almost all restaurants and bars, a standard "Serviço" service fee of 10% is included as a line item at the end of the "conta" or bill. It is not expected to surpass this amount. It is always clearly identified this fee is not obligatory, but it is hardly expected you pay it. Brazilians don't normally tip taxi drivers, although they may round the total up.
