How to Get There

In Sao Paulo, we arrived from Istanbul, Turkey. The tickets cost us a thousand dollars for the two of us. This was the most cost-effective option without a Schengen visa. If you have a Schengen visa, you can find tickets at half the price. Our tickets were from Bosnia, with a layover in Istanbul. So, we traveled through the Balkans before reaching South America.

Sao Paulo

Now, let’s begin our introduction to Sao Paulo. Sao Paulo is a massive metropolis, one of the most densely populated cities in the world. It’s also a financial hub in South America. Here, affluent neighborhoods coexist with favelas (slums), making the city somewhat unsafe, especially in the evening. Especially in the evening. In fact, you need to be cautious even during the day, keeping an eye on your belongings and holding your phone securely when you want to take photos of something interesting.

Sao Paulo what to see


We arrived in the city center, where the Cathedral is located. This is one of the largest neo-Gothic cathedrals in the world. It took nearly half a century to build. The cathedral is stunning, as is the area around it. It’s relatively safe near the cathedral, with plenty of security. We climbed the stairs and went inside. There you can relax and shoot without fear. Inside, like in any other cathedral, there are high ceilings and various icons on the walls. Everything is made of marble. It’s truly beautiful!
The Cathedral is located at: Praça da Sé — Sé, Sao Paulo — SP
Opening hours: 8:00 AM — 6:00 PM
After visiting the cathedral, we strolled through the city center. We reached the Rock Shopping Center, had a quick bite nearby, and enjoyed some coffee.

Japanese Quarter

Liberdade is like a little slice of Japan in the heart of this bustling city. Every corner here reminds you of Japan. Lanterns on the streets, sushi restaurants, quaint little squares, and of course, the people. t’s intriguing to step from a modern metropolis into this small neighborhood that feels entirely different. There’s a unique atmosphere here.
We tried passion fruit ice cream and avocado smoothies, and they were divine! Not the Japanese quarter itself, but the ice cream and smoothies were heavenly!
Not far from there, we dropped by a tattoo parlor run by our friend Nate’s cousin. We got inspired by the tattoos and headed back home for future ink adventures.

Mirante Sesc Viewing Platform

The next day, we visited the area with a free viewing platform called Mirante Sesc his platform is in the business district of the city, where you often see people in suits rushing about. To access the platform, you need to register online and show your booking at the entrance.

The viewing platform is located at: Avenida Paulista, 119

From here, you get a panoramic view of all of Sao Paulo, and it seems like the city has no end. Like true tourists, we took photos, gazed at the sprawling concrete jungle, and moved on.

Ibirapuera Park

The park is enormous. A great place for jogging, skateboarding, or cycling.You can even have a picnic in the shade of a beautiful sprawling tree. We didn’t do any of that, but we worked up an appetite. To satisfy our hunger, Nate suggested we try another fantastic place – pizza rodizio.

Pizza Rodizio

It was magnificent! Pizza rodizio is an all-you-can-eat pizza experience with a million different flavors. ou pay a fixed amount, choose a table, and every five minutes, a waiter brings you slices of various pizzas. It’s hard not to try a new flavor each time. We’ve never seen such variety anywhere else. There’s pizza with five cheeses, with ham, with broccoli, with chocolate, banana, strawberry, and many other options. Everything is fresh, straight from the oven. It costs 50 Brazilian reais.
We advise you to visit this place Mansao de pizza.
We ate so much that it was hard to get up. We felt like we might burst. his was a new experience for us, and we wanted to try every flavor. But it’s impossible! Can’t try everything. In Brazil, the food is incredibly delicious and diverse.

Three Days in Sao Paulo

So, we spent several days in Sao Paulo. Saw a lot, and even got tired of the hustle and bustle of the big city. The next city we headed to was Santos.
We’ll tell you how to get there and what to see in our next article. Goodbye!
