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

Explore Liberdade

The city is home to a thriving Japanese population, and many of them call Liberdade home. It’s a fascinating neighborhood for a wander; you’ll feel like you’re stepping into a different world. Look for the tall red gate—Red Torii—and you'll know you've entered the right place.

Learn about Brazilian history at Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil

This impressive institution might seem like just a bank, but it’s actually so much more. The CCBB hosts art exhibitions, cultural festivities, and other events that are a great way to learn about the long and varied history of São Paulo and Brazil as a whole.

Visit the Museu do Futebol

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

Restaurante Acrópoles (Greek)

An excellent option if you want to dine on a budget. You might not think about Greek cuisine when you head to Brazil, but the food and service here are excellent, and if you're after a slice of real life in São Paulo, this is the place to go.

Dalva e Dito (Modern Brazilian)

Dalva e Dito is as casual as the Cerqueira César neighborhood it calls home. Don't miss the traditional seafood stew known as moqueca, which is a staple of the region, or any number of Amazonian fish dishes on the menu.

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, reservations 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.

Places to stay in São Paulo

Tivoli São Paulo

Paulistanos consider Tivoli one of the city's finest hotels; its Jardins location is a great spot from which to set out exploring. If you’d rather dine close to home, head for the 23rd floor to eat at Arola Vintetres, renowned Spanish Chef Sergi Arola's first venture outside Europe.
