Sao Paulo

São Paulo is the financial and business hub of Brazil and biggest city in the country.

Located in south-east Brazil, Sao Paulo is known as the Terra da Garoa (Land of the Drizzle).

The capital of Sao Paulo state, Sao Paulo is the most ethnically diverse city in Brazil thanks to the inpouring of immigrants looking for work in the early 19th century.

Sao Paulo is not all about work though and if you like eating out, you'll have an international range of gastronomic menus to choose from. Shoppers will enjoy the place too.

Football in Sao Paulo

Sao Paulo Tourism

São Paulo is often overlooked by visitors to Brazil who prefer the coastal cities of Rio de Janeiro and Salvador de Bahia and the beach culture of the north-east.

Sao Paulo is a large, sprawling city that on first impressions seems little more than a concrete jungle. It is worth spending a few days here though and then maybe heading out to the coast; Sao Paulo state has 622 kilometres of beaches.

State of Sao Paulo:
Thanks to their hard-working ethic, Paulistas have transformed São Paulo into one of the most important economic states in Latin America.

Getting to Sao Paulo

Sao Paulo by Air

If you fly to São Paulo from abroad, you'll mostly likely land at Guarulhos International Airport (GRU) - also known as Cumbica.

Viracopos (CPQ) is also an international airport, used when weather conditions prevent landing at Cumbica, while Congonhas (CGH) is used for most medium and short-haul domestic flights.

Sao Paulo by Road

Such a large city needs a few bus terminals, just to make things a little more confusing for visitors.

Terminal Rodoviário do Tietê serves destinations throughout Brazil and  major destinations in neighbouring countries: Asunción in Paraguay (20 hrs), Buenos Aires in Argentina (36 hrs), Montevideo in Uruguay (30 hrs) and Santiago de Chile (56 hrs).

Terminal Rodoviário da Barra Funda serves western cities in Sao Paulo state, Mato Grosso, Foz do Iguaçu and west Paraná cities.

Terminal Rodoviário de Jabaquara serves the state's southern cities: Guarujá, Santos and Bertioga.
