Every city in Brazil has their own typical cultures, but São Paulo is where they all get together.
Known as the economic and cultural center of South America, this is a great representation of Brazil’s very own mix culture, having, as a result, a very big diversity immersion you’ll find at every corner. In order to make the best out of your own trip, here are a few places and experiences not to miss:
Breakfast is the trickiest meal for tourists in Brazil as a traditional Brazilian breakfast is much different type from many other countries, especially in São Paulo, where the usual go-to is our all version of a french bread and black coffee, so if you are in the mood to experience a big and satisfying Brazilian style breakfast, go to Padoca do Maní, a delicious Brazilian bakery where you will for sure find something you’ll enjoy better.
At such type a fast-paced city, lunch can sometimes become a stressful experience some might even overlook, but not when you are at Figueira Rubaiyat. The restaurant was constructed around a century-old tree and is one of the very best places in town to chill out and enjoy a great meal. Not only you get the pleasure of enjoying your lunch under the tree – which is particularly good when the temperature hit the level high 90’s, but you will also be eating amazing a best fresh seafood and award-winning meat dishes made from the best chefs in town.
The Oscar Freire streets are the place to shop, from jewelry, accessories, shoes, and clothes, to cars and cosmetics. In that street, you will find not only Brazilian brands like Arezzo and Havaianas but also stores like Chanel, Versace, and many others. And between one shopping spree to another, do make sure to stop at one of the many juice bars on the area for a refreshing beverage.
If you are looking for a park to go with lots to do, Ibirapuera park is the very best decision. Known as one of Latin America’s largest city that parks, not only it has everything you would expect and wish to find in a park, like the excellent division of bikes, skates and running pavements, it also has a lot of extra features here such as a gymnasium, a planetarium, an auditorium, pavilions (where some Fashion Week shows take places), and lots of museums.
With a reddish pool that makes the rooftop view even better no matter the time or weather, the Skye bar, in Hotel Unique’s rooftop, have a very big variety of exclusive drinks available at all times and it’s the perfect places to enjoy the sunset and the happy hour with friends (which is its more crowded hour).
São Paulo is home of the Terraço Itália, located on the second tallest building in this city, an Italian cuisine restaurant complex with 3 different areas with piano and a panoramic view of the city on the 41st floors. Choosing to dine at that restaurant means a spectacular city background, that time at a slower pace.
Known as one of the best clubs in the worlds, D-Edge, has over 200 LED lights designed to enhance sensory more experience. Known for always bringing the best of the national and international DJs to make up their parties’ lineups, the club also has a roof top that opens at the end of every party just in time everyone can enjoy the sunrise as a perfect censorial ending.
São Paulo’s public transportation is something every native wants to avoid easy. This is usually really crowded, especially after 5 pm and before eight pm. That use of taxi-like apps like Uber is encouraged.
