·    Ibirapuera Park: This impressive park has winding bike paths, lakes, and attractions from an open-air theatre to a roller skating rink. It’s a wonderful escape from the busy city with breathtaking scenery.
·    Culture: However you like to get a taste of a city’s culture, Sao Paulo has something for you. Musical performances and ballets at the Teatro Municipal, hundreds of museums, outdoor fairs and markets, and even Liberdade, a Japanese district, are great places to see. Also keep an eye out for different events at the stadiums in between soccer games!
·    Shopping: Home to the major Sao Paulo Fashion Week, you can’t leave Sao Paulo without shopping! Both in Sao Paulo and Guarja, a beach about an hour away from Sao Paulo, you can shop at countless stores that vary from casual shops to luxury boutiques.
