Synopsis

 

Our illustrated travel guide will take you to Sao Paulo, Brazil.

São Paulo is the largest city in Brazil, with a city population of about 11 million and almost 20 million in its metropolitan region. It is the capital of the Southeastern state of São Paulo, and also a beehive of activity that offers a great nightlife activities and an intense cultural experience. 

São Paulo is one of the richest cities in the southern hemisphere, although the inequality of the clazzes that is often observed in Brazil is blatant. Historically attractive to immigrants as well as Brazilians from other states, it's one of the most diverse cities in the world.

São Paulo, or Sampa as it is also often called, is one of the most underrated cities tourism-wise, often eclipsed by other places in the Brazilian sun & beach circuit such as Rio de Janeiro and Salvador. 

It is in fact a great city to explore, with its own idiosyncrasies and an intense way of life. São Paulo features many world-clazz restaurants and a diverse regional and international cuisine. If there is a major attraction to São Paulo it is the excellent quality of its restaurants and its variety of cultural activities.
