Summary

São Paulo, the largest and arguably the most interesting city in South America, is a culturally diverse megalopolis. Among the 25th wealthiest cities in the world, it is South America’s financial capital and Brazil’s answer to the cosmopolitan destinations of the developed world. From the Japanese markets in the neighbourhood of Liberdade, to the Italian neighbourhood of Bexiga and the numerous Lebanese sweet-stalls and kosher delis, São Paulo offers visitors a fascinating tour of the ethnic groups that make up modern Brazil. The city’s stunning architecture reflects Brazil’s colonial roots and its never-ending zeal for modernity: Baroque churches mix with bold modernist landmarks designed by Brazil’s greatest contemporary architect, Oscar Niemeyer. São Paulo attracts all manner of tourists: young, hip travellers visit the city for its great music, art and food scene; international business people descend on the financial capital for its conferences and expos; and wealthy fashionistas fly in by helicopter to frequent high-end boutiques.
