Probably the most surprising city in the south hemisphere. This is the city with the best night life that you will find

Wonderful city! Very much the New York of South America. Great Museum of Modern Art, and wonderful outdoor bar just behind it! Have a caipirinha, kick back, and enjoy the nightlife!

São Paulo holds much of Brazil's wealth; and with that wealth come nice things like Parque Ibirapuera, Vila Madalena, MASP, and Avenida Paulista. Let's not even begin with the restaurants. Oh, the restaurants! Paulistanos having a reputation for being distant or cold, but they sure know how to build a city and fill it with the warmth of food and color. The colors -- Beco do Batman, Mercado Municipal. I think this is one of those cities that you like more as you get better acquainted with it.
