São Paulo and Rio couldn’t be any more different. Rio is hot, sexy and chaotic, known for its sultry beaches and passionate samba. In São Paulo, residents of the seventh largest city in the world capital are more often than not found working, partly to maintain its distinction as the world's tenth richest city. That money buys a lot of impressive buildings, and visitors will appreciate the 70 shopping malls and dozens of business hotels that fill the Brazilian modernist architectural gems. As the cultural capital of Brazil, São Paulo boasts South America's most impressive collection of nightclubs, museums and theatres. The city is also South America's most gay-friendly; its Gay Pride Parade in October is the largest in the world, known to draw up to 3 million folks.Dining tops most Paulistanos lists of things to do, as São Paulo has the best restaurant selection in the country, ranging from sushi to Brazilian churrascurias (steakhouses). São Paulo has the largest population of Italian descendants outside of Italy (six million), so try the famed pizza paulistana.

    Ron, as you know, Lea is from Sao Paulo, so we are pretty familiar with that area and can give you numerous tips (email me). Also, we can give you some advice regarding Rio. What about the Iguazu falls?

    São Paulo is amazing, just as big as NYC or Tokyo São Paulo is one of the best cities to eat in the world, home of trend hotels like Fasano, Emiliano or Tivoli. São Paulo also is great for shopping try Oscar Freire or Shopping Cidade Jardim for luxury shopping, explore the Jardins and all the trend places. You must visit this Huge city if you love hotels, food and shopping.

    São Paulo is one of the great centers of culture, entertainment, fashion and business worldwide.
    The city is located less than an hour from some beaches (Port of Santos, Guaruja, Maresias) is very nice to walk the beaches at night with your boyfriend or husband or just a good company.
    The food is varied and rich, the fruits are exotic but it is noteworthy that the music, dance and people who live there are very cheerful, the language is not very compressible but the music is very contagious and the pace invites you to dance.
    I recommend wearing Brazil there are many places to vistar family and also alone, there are lots of fun at night where you can enjoy a good attention.

    A cidade que nunca dorme...a maior metrópole do Brasil, realmente, é uma cidade fascinante. Em qualquer lugar, a qualquer hora, sempre uma atração para ver.

    I was born here so I am well aware of the faults and why the good things overcome them and make the city worth it.
