São Paulo isn’t the Brazil of surf, sand, and sambas. Yet over 4 million travelers head to this global financial mecca each year to shop the city’s 70+ malls and visit its equally vast collection of museums, which offer everything from traditional crafts and extreme modern art to a museum that houses tens of thousands of poisonous snakes. It’s also a gourmand’s paradise, serving up Portuguese, Italian, Arabic, Spanish, Japanese, and dozens of other cuisines. Time Out São Paulo helps visitors make the most of this sprawling, sophisticated city. Written by a team of local journalists, it offers in-depth coverage of local foods, artists, musicians, sports, and festivals, with critic’s picks for the best bars, restaurants, and cultural highlights in a variety of categories. Tips on exploring the Central Park of São Paulo, the lovely Parque de Ibirapuera, help visitors escape the city’s chaos.
