São Paulo Things to Do

  • When it rains do buy that umbrella!

    Or poncho. I got a plastic poncho and wish I'd gotten the umbrella. I'm reducing my use of plastics, especially single use plastics (water bottles, plastic bags) because it doesn't pay to recycle. And on top of that, bottle caps don't recycle, and on top of that the polyethylene in the plastic (softens the plastic) ***s with one's health and...

  • Mercado Municipal

    Make sure you save time to spend a lunch here! This place is amazing! I enjoyed the classic pastel de bacalhau at a spot downstairs among the food stalls. You may want to have lunch upstairs. The restaurants with full service (and real plates & cutlery) are upstairs. It was bustling with people. A great, great vibe! A definite must for lunch! I...

  • Edificio (Building) Copán

    Architecture buffs will check out Edificio Copán, an apartment building with 1160 units designed by Oscar Niemeyer. The units vary in size from 26 to 350 square feet housing residents of different incomes, a social experiment. The coffee bar at ground level is one of the best spots in the city to grab a cup o joe. I had an orange juice. d'oh! I...

  • Enjoy the energy of this Metropolitan...

    There was an art exhibit than included placing life vests on statues around the city. I don't know who the artist is or what the meaning of this project is, but it made me stop for a second and I loved running into new statues w/ the life vests!

  • Check out the Mid-Century and Current...

    Some examples of world-class mid-century architecture. I didn't have enough time to capture more. The architecture is a great reason to visit Sao Paulo!

  • Visit Oscar Neumeyer in Parque do...

    If you are interested in mid-century architecture, a visit to Parque do Ibirapuera is a must. There are a number of Oscar Niemeyer edifices here. Along with them a bit of nice art too. The museums of Modern and Contemporary Art as well as the Afro-Brasil Museum are housed in Niemeyer Designs. I definitely recommend a visit.

  • Lovely Outdoor Patio

    It is easy to miss this place. Walking by on the sidewalk you only see a wall and the doorway. If you look up you'll see the makings of an outdoor terrace and become curious. I was, and is how I discovered this place. The pizzas are named after internationally famous artists. The pizza tastes great though the topping combinations were a little...

  • Great Ambiance!

    Great atmosphere! Nice interior, street. Front walls have huge windows that open. The hostess looks like Michell Obama! The food was very well done too. I can't remember it entirely. I just remember I had a great time and would recommend this place. Beware of the glasses of beer they keep pushing on people. They are surprisingly expensive. They...

    Sky Bar: Amazing Views

    by anacapa Written Dec 22, 2008

    This tip is also in the hotel section. The Bar is worth a definite visit. Drinks are relatively expensive (R$18 for a Caipirinha), but not more expensive than at a not-as-nice place in Los Angeles.

São Paulo Warnings and Dangers

  • MrPOE's Profile Photo

    Valuable things should NEVER be visible!

    by MrPOE Written Oct 10, 2005

    It has probably been said a thousand times by now but ... DO NOT have valuable things like laptop computers or even computer bags visible in taxis etc 'cause they will be stolen ... even when you're on the highway (see those two guys on a motorcycle?)!!!
