Living in Sao Paulo:
With an estimated population of 17 million people, greater São Paulo is one of the largest cities in the world. This makes it one of the best places in the country for food, art, and entertainment comparable to many world capitals.
Because of the incredible ethnic diversity within the city, Paulistanos enjoy almost every kind of cuisine in the many different neighborhoods. São Paulo division into smaller, diverse bairros, each with their own unique flavor, makes a large city highly accessible. Whether you are enjoying a cheap snack in one of the million street-side lanchonetes, hopping between museums or art galleries in the city centre, or spending an afternoon in Parque Ibirapuera where you can run, join a soccer game, listen to an open air concert, check out contemporary art or simply people watch, it is possible to never be bored in São Paulo.
After you’ve sampled everything São Paulo has to offer, head off to one of the many beaches within the state, an hour or two away by car, to relax and enjoy the Brazilian warmth you’ll find wherever you go.
