Flights to São Paulo

You can't talk about São Paulo without talking about its size. Everything in the city is big, from the sprawling suburbs that seem to stretch out endlessly as your flight to São Paulo lands to the population that extends to 20 million in the greater metropolitan area.

The city is one of those living, thriving, teeming masses of humanity that has the power to leave you marveling at the sheer magnitude of people. It's the largest city in the country and in all of the Americas.

A lot of travelers who head to Brazil think first of Rio de Janeiro, but to overlook São Paulo would be to miss out on a truly exciting destination. Once you become accustomed to the fast pace of activity, you'll find an energetic city full of the finer things in life, from luxury hotels and restaurants to cute cafes and all-night lounges.

São Paulo might not have one restaurant for each of its 20 million residents, but sometimes it can seem that way. The city offers nearly 13,000 distinct venues from which to choose, with dozens of international cuisines on the various menus around the city. One of the main local staples is pastel, a pastry envelope stuffed with all types of fillings and then deep fried in vegetable oil.

You could probably spend the entire trip eating pastel at various small spots around the city, but make sure to leave time to eat at one or more of the best restaurants in São Paulo. There are so many, but two standouts are Greek-themed Restaurante Acrópoles and D.O.M., Chef Alex Atala's joint that is unlike anything else on the planet.

There are also world-class museums, parks, memorials, and sporting events scattered throughout. Finding them can be a bit difficult on the winding streets, but that's part of the fun. Just bring your sense of adventure.

When it comes to resting after a full day’s adventuring, São Paulo has your accommodation needs covered. Because it's such a large city, spanning a huge area, picking a hotel in an area you want to explore is one of the more important parts of planning your trip. For most tourists, that means Centro, Higienópolis, or Jardins, three centrally located neighborhoods with plenty to do.

As a rule, São Paulo shines for its excellent service and the fun starts at Hotel Unique, a place whose name says it all. Or you can choose to end the night (and start the next day) at one of the best hotels in São Paulo, the Tivoli.

The city doesn't have the same mass of wandering backpackers who find their way around Rio de Janeiro, but there's still a vibrant, exciting culture that revolves around the city’s many hostels.

There's excitement around every corner, and literally a million nooks and crannies for you to explore. One thing’s for sure—you won't run out of things to do.

What to do in São Paulo

Visit the Museu do Futebol

You can't visit Brazil without embracing the country’s passion for football, and this celebration of the sport at the famous Estadio Pacaembu features old items from the archives, interactive displays, and a general excellent ode to the beautiful game. A great place to embrace your inner Pele.

See the street art at Beco do Batman (Batman Alley)

São Paulo is well known for its vibrant and rapidly developing street art scene and Batman Alley is where the cool kids come to express themselves. Located in hip Vila Madalena, both sides of the meandering street are covered with images that really belong in a gallery.

Relax in Parque Ibirapuera

Given the fast pace of city life, you might want a few minutes of peace and quiet. Parque Ibirapuera, São Paulo's largest green space and one of the biggest in Latin America, offers a break from all the busyness. Walk or bike on a path, or just sit and people watch.

Where to eat in São Paulo

D.O.M. (Modern Brazilian)

Routinely finding its way into lists of the planet’s best restaurants, what started as an industry-defining concept has flourished into a spot so hot, bookings are taken months in advance. Chef Alex Atala makes no secret of his former life as a punk and DJ, and that creativity can be found from the decor to the plate.

SESC Pinheiros (Brazilian)

Head here for a little bit of Brazilian egalitarianism, with a savoury buffet that operates on a pay per kilo model. You'll dine with SESC members and workers, an organisation dedicated to furthering art and sport in Brazil, and they might have a travel tip or two for curious travellers.
