You can easily find a taxi in São Paulo city. Officially they are all white cars. You should always keep some money with you because most taxis drivers do not take credit cards. It is highly recommended that you have your accurate route so that you can avoid any language misunderstanding due to the fact that most taxi drivers do not speak a second language.
São Paulo is a big city and driving requires a lot of patience. The public transportation can be useful if you are in a hurry and know that there is a subway station nearby. The subway green line Trianon-Masp is the nearest from InterContinental São Paulo.
Brazilians are not used to tipping. Usually a proper tip for a good service would be 10% on your total restaurant amount. Many places do not add the tip on your bill. Nevertheless, if you had a good level of service, it is kind to pay for it.
São Paulo city hosts many attractions for all tastes and pockets. Get prepared for every kinds of events. As Paulista Avenue is located just one block away from the hotel, you will find the most different fashion styles strolling around this important avenue or just chatting over a cup of coffee.

São Paulo has the biggest Japanese community in the world outside Japan. The Japanese neighborhood is quite close to the hotel and it has an open air market on Sundays, very interesting to visit.
São Paulo is known as the "Rainy City" because in the old days it used to rain every day at the same time. Nowadays, it has changed, but the nickname is still popular in famous national songs.
Weekend in São Paulo
Weekends and holidays are just perfect to visit São Paulo as many people go to the beach. Visitors can see and enjoy the bustling city peacefully. Moreover, as traffic flows better, taxis will not be expensive.
WHAT TO PACK
Even during summer we recommend to pack a jacket and some long-sleeve shirts. The winter can be harsh, but you should also have a light jacket, in case the temperature becomes moderate and bring an umbrella. The weather in Sao Paulo is tropical and very unpredictable.
To walk around the city, it would be better if you have light clothes, with comfortable shoes or trainers. If you are looking for some great experience in the city's restaurants some classical shoes are highly appreciated.
