São Paulo

09/20/13
"Selva de Pedra" (Concrete Jungle) is the expression that best describes this city to me. There is concrete everywhere as well as extreme contrasts. Having said this, the city has some of the most amazing restaurants to enjoy, an interesting night life and touristic destinations such as the MASP (Art Museum of Sao Paulo), Ipiranga Museum, Ibirapuera Park and shopping centers such as Morumbi, El Dorado, Iguatemi.

Best nights

08/28/13
You have to be very active at night specially for food and drinks. São Paulo is known for the best restaurants, specially for Italian food such as pasta and pizza. Best bar are all over the city but in Vila Mariana you will find many of them with live music. For clubbing, you can't miss LoveStory Club, Yatch Club, D-Edge and be up-to-date with everything going on in the city. In the morning, a walk around Ibirapuera can be fun and relaxing. In São Paulo you can find many places to buy from designer clothing to budget insanely-crowded-fair-type 25 de Março street. Don't miss the local market Mercado Municipal for a taste of truly paulista (person from São Paulo) food. For art lovers, Masp and the Pinacoteca are great places to know. Do it all, if you are not hangover.

Many Cultures

08/23/13
São Paulo is the biggest city in Brazil and it is not only known for the fact tat it never sleeps, but also because it has many different cultures from all over the world inside it and this is reflected in the architecture, music, and food.

The city centre is full of restaurants, bars, dance clubs and pubs, but outside this area there are neighbourhoods that represent other cultures, such as the "Liberdade", which is a Japanese neighbourhood.

For the ones who love history and arts, it is also a very good destination. It is best known for its museums and theaters and there are always exhibitions, concerts and plays from Brazilian artists and foreigner artists as well.

Last, but not least, Sao Paulo is a perfect place for shopping, since it is a very large city and you can find everything everywhere.
