Take a bus to Sao Paulo in Brazil!

Backpacking Sao Paulo


One of the biggest cities in the world, with almost 20 million people, Sao Paulo is a huge modern city and also the economical and financial heart of Brazil if not Latin America. 

You need to see this impressive city with your own eyes to truly understand it's size and the best way to take it all in is by heading to the 'Edificio Italia' observation floor.  'Avenida Paulista' and its skyscrapers offers a great walk through the city, past big shops and nice restaurants. 

Sao Paulo has the rush of a big city but it also offers nice walks and tranquil places to get away from it all. For instance, the Ibirapuera Park is a big place for a pleasant walk and it also has good museums to visit. In this park you can appreciate some of the buildings designed by Oscar Niemeyer, a well known modern Brazilian architect that was also involved in the design of Brasilia. Paque do Carmo is another amazing park, and also the biggest in the city.

Sao Paulo is a great place for admiring Brazilian art as there is always a great variety of events and shows for all tastes. You can visit the MASP (Sao Paulo Art Museum) located on the Paulista Avenue and featuring a great European art collection and frequent modern art and photography events. Pinacoteca del Estado is also a good spot, as it holds more than 4000 Brazilian paintings from the 19th century to present times. MAM & MAC (Museum of  modern and contemporary art) has more than 5000 works of art and there are usually many exhibitions.  

Due to its intense and varied immigration waves, Sao Paulo has many interesting neighborhoods to visit. For example "Liberdade", the Japanese district, that holds many interesting asian shops and buildings. The Mooca is the Italian district and a really attractive area. 

Sao Paulo has a beautiful Cathedral, the "Catedral da Sé", an icon of the city located in the nice "Praça da Sé", the historical square. There are also many historical buildings that are worth a visit. You can see Patio do Colegio, an old Jesuitic school, the municipal Theatre of Sao Paulo and the Estação da Luz, a beautiful old railway station. 

You can also visit one of the biggest attractions in Brazil: the football (soccer) stadium. Sao Paulo has hundreds of stadiums, and it´s a good idea to enjoy a football match. Corinthians and Palmeiras are the most popular teams and their games provide enough enthusiasm to truly admire Brazilian football.
