Actually I do live in Sao Paulo, and I love it. It's a magnificent city and you're going to find lot's of things to do and places to visit. You can visit the central market (subway station Sao Bento - blue line) whre you'll find a yummy special bologna sandwitch, here known as "sanduiche de mortadela". In the way to the market, you can walk through the 25th of march street, where women will definetly go crazy with all the acessories shops as cheap products. To know a little bit more about Sao Paulo and Brazil, you can visit the Ipiranga's museum (subway station Ipiranga - green line), which is an interesting visit by its stunning architecture. Also visit the MASP museum, at Avenida Paulista (subway station Trianon Masp-green line) and enjoy a walk in this large and busy avenue. And, don't miss a visit to the Ibirapuera's park (you must to get a bus or a cab near to the subway station Brigadeiro - green line); at this spot, you can rent a bike and have a ride around the park to see all the overwhelming architecture of the buildings planned by Oscar Niermeyer, the museums of modern art (MAM) and contemporary art (MAC). You can also enjoy the night in one of our night clubs, here known as "baladas" or watch an interesting play or musical in the always happening arts circuit in the city. Enjoy!

This is the cultural and financial centre of São Paulo. It is a very populated area because of all the offices located there (mostly international banks), but it also is home for a lot of great museums (Casa das Rosas, Sesc, MASP). It is a landmark of São Paulo. Here is where most of our protests are held and also where the big new year party takes place every December 31st.
The adjacent streets are also full of bars and discos (mainly in Bela Vista and Augusta Streets).
The variety of bar styles attract very different people to the area (from punks to gays).
A lot of movie theaters and "normal" theaters are also located around this area.
It is a great idea to just walk through it and visit the tourists spots along the way.
For those who are interested, along Av. Paulista there are some buildings where Federal Courts are installed.
There's a tube line that accompanies all its extension (green line).

Avenida Paulista is a great place to be. It was the biggest Avenue in São Paulo, with many Skyscrapers! Currently, Avenida Berrini is the main Offices Avenue in SP.
But Paulista keeps its charm and interesting places, like the MASP museum, Trianon Garden and many big bookstores. Some old and hystorical buildings.
Surrounding this Avenue, there are many Clubs, in Rua Augusta.
Well, don't leave São Paulo without being in Avenida Paulista!

I work here! It's a great place to visit, since it's where the the important museum MASP is...
There are some parks in this Av. too, but they are smaller than famous parks like Central Park or Parque del Retiro.
It's a place where lots of peoples works everyday, but is a great place to visit too!
