About Sao Paulo

Sao Paulo is both the name of Brazil’s largest city and the name of the state. “Paulistanos” are known as the people born in Sao Paulo City; those born in the state however are called, “Paulistas”. But we will be discussing more on Sao Paulo city in Brazil as many travelers find the place to be very intimidating, especially to those who have never step foot in this enormous city. It is known to be one of the Southern hemisphere’s richest cities and without proper guidance; you’ll just not be able to know where to start your journey or worst, end up lost in the middle of nowhere. So before packing your bags and hopping onto a jet plane, get your facts ready and plan your trip. The city is popular for its incredible night life and strong cultural events but it is not the best tourist-friendly city as most travel destinations are. So knowing where to go and what to do is your best option. If you’re more of a spontaneous traveler and doesn’t want to arrange his travels, you might want to reconsider that before you leave for Sao Paulo if you want to enjoy your travel. Here are just a few tips where you can start your city journey. Museu de Arte de Sao Paulo (MASP). MASP is the best art museum in the city. You can spend a day of pampering your vision and creative mind with Latin America’s Western art’s finest collection. If you’re on a tight budget, you can come on a Tuesday as the museum is free to the public on that day. Saturday Samba. Pack your dancing shoes my friend, because Saturday Samba is a must! It’s Paulistanos’ way of relaxing after a busy work in the city. Dancing to the live Samba music is a great way of experiencing the Paulistanos’ way of life. The best place to show your groove is in a popular bar in Vila Madalena , known as “Bar Samba”. They start the playing live Samba music from 1:00 to 1:30PM and you can hit the floor until late at night when they close. It is recommended that you come early and try out their delicious traditional Brazilian feast of beans, dried meat, farofa, kale, rice and oranges, called the “feijoada”. The place is always filled with fun crowd so you will never feel alone even if you are. All-day Market in Benedito Calixto. Before going to your Saturday Samba, it’s best to stop over the Calixto outdoor market. The market offers a variety of antiques and handicrafts that are good souvenirs for your visit. They also play “Chorinho” live all day. It’s a Samba-influenced Brazilian style of music and many visit the market to hear it played. Avenida Paulista. Get ready for a stroll around the grandest boulevard of the city. Here you will find amazing mixture of historic and modern buildings. Every May or June, this where the world’s biggest gay parade is held.
