Test your street smarts in the ultimate urban jungle.

São Paulo, one of the largest cities on earth, is a teeming, befuddling, intoxicating place. Its art and entertainment are on par with any world capital. Paulistanos believe in working hard and playing harder, and despite complaining about traffic and pollution, wouldn't dream of living elsewhere.

São Paulo can be an intimidating place, but if you have someone to show you around, or if you just like the challenge of navigating urban jungles, it's worth a visit. And despite moving at a much faster pace than the rest of the country, the usual Brazilian warmth and alegría still rules.

Weather

São Paulo city temperatures are moderate in winter and warm but not excessively hot in summer, with a tendency towards often uncomfortable humidity levels. Heavy rainfall sometimes occurs in December/January and some local flooding can result.

A Top Day in Sao Paulo

One of the delights of visiting São Paulo is experiencing the many cultures and communities that have immigrated here from all over the globe. Every opportunity I get, I enjoy exploring this fascinating aspect of the city's past and present.

In the morning, I'll start my day at the Immigrant Memorial Museum, a former residence for the newly arrived, which once housed workers from Japan, Italy, Portugal and Lebanon, amongst others. I'll then take the metro downtown where I can see the latest flush of immigrants in Centro, a bairro (district) of both cobbled streets and the hustle-and-bustle of commerce. After joining the people parade on the lively pedestrian streets, I'll have coffee at one of the laid-back cafes near the Praça da República.

After lunch, I'll take a taxi to Jardim Paulista, for a bit of window-shopping in São Paulo's loveliest neighborhood. As the heat arrives, I'll retreat to my favorite record store (FNAC) or a cosy coffee shop along Rua Oscar Freire (Santo Grão is always a good choice).

For dinner it's on to Bela Vista, São Paulo's Italian neighborhood, which is packed with old-fashioned eateries (particularly along Rua 13 de Maio) serving a wide range of traditional fare. Afterwards, I'll end the night at the rooftop bar of the Hotel Unique, enjoying caipirinhas and the marvelous views over the city.
