Affectionately referred to as Sampas by locals, Sao Paulo is Brazil’s bustling cultural center. Boasting a population of over 17 million people, the city is truly one of the world’s great urban centers. With so much to do and see in this vibrant destination, travellers definitely need a plan to make sure that they experience as much of Sao Paulo as possible. The friendly staff at any one of our well-appointed Sao Paulo hotels is well-positioned to do just that, helping you make the most of your stay.
Until the 1950s, Sao Paulo was eclipsed by larger and more fashionable Rio. However, foreign auto companies like Volkswagen and GM changed the city’s prospects when they made it their South American headquarters. Since then, Sao Paulo has experienced continuous growth and development. Today, the city rivals New York and Paris in terms of its high-end boutiques, luxurious offerings, and beautiful people.
Begin your stay in Sao Paulo with a leisurely walk through Centro, a vibrant pedestrian area where you can haggle like a local in the market and sample some of the freshest fruit anywhere. In order to work up an appetite, next make your way to the top of the looming Banespa Building, where you will be rewarded with a panoramic view of the city. It is from the air that you can truly get a sense of Sao Paulo’s epic size.
Now that you are good and hungry, it’s time to go in search of lunch: the city is a gourmand’s heaven. Because immigrants play such a crucial role in the history of Sao Paulo, you can likely find whatever cuisine strikes your fancy. However, meat lovers will be devastated if they miss out on a visit to one of the many famed Churrascarias, or Brazilian bbq joints.
