São Paulo is one of the 5 biggest cities in the world, so if you’re coming to São Paulo, you need to know the best of where to go and what to see. This is exactly what this itinerary provides!
You’ll get 46 pages information including travel tips from a local’s point of view, hot spots, eating recommendations as well as loads of maps and directions detailing where to go and how to get there. The itinerary provides heaps of insights, tips, advice and up to date information you don’t usually get from regular travel guides because it was written by a non-native who has become a local after living and travelling in and around the city for many years now.
The itinerary is intended for people of all ages and interests whether you’re travelling by yourself, with friends, with a partner or a family. However it is probably more suited to people between the ages of 20 – 40 who aren’t averse to walking a lot, those who are travelling on a budget and those are interested in seeing as much of the city as possible. The destinations in the itinerary cater for those interested in Brazilian culture, history, art, music, night life and those who wish to sample the innumerable delights of the culinary kingdom known as São Paulo.
The itinerary mainly focuses on the popular places of São Paulo as advised by locals, with a few hidden gems of my own selection thrown into the mix. You’ll get to see the glitz and glamour of Oscar Freire in Jardims, the enormous Parque Ibirapuera, São Paulo Zoo (containing around 3500 different types of animals in an environment mirroring their original habitat), Paulista Ave, Itaim Bibi (the new Paulista), the urban bohemia of Vila Madalena as well as many historical churches in the centre of the city, beautiful historical and modern art galleries, graffiti hot spots as well as many local art and craft markets which regularly appear throughout the city. All destinations have recommended restaurants, bars and cafes as well as lots of detailed maps and directions outlining the best way to get to and from wherever you want to go.
