Main language: Portuguese
Money currency: Real (Plural: Reais)
Electrical current: Normally 110 volts. Check it with the front desk of the hotel or the owner of the house/apartment. Transformers to boost the current from 110 volts to 220 volts are available in most good electrical supply stores.
The city of Sao Paulo is a melting pot, both cultural and ethnical. It offers the best cuisine, cultural attractions and nightlife.
My fave places in Sao Paulo:
Liberdade: Sunday market at the central square Pra?a da Liberdade, shops and Japanese restaurants.
Paulista area: Movie theaters, bookstores, bars, hairdresser, restaurants and shops.
Rua Augusta & Oscar Freire: Many many shops, restaurants, ice-cream parlors and movie theaters.
What they have to say about São Paulo:
"So here we are in Sao Paolo and it's just amazing.
Industrial, dirty and full of life just the way I like it.
I'm definitely coming back here one day to stay a bit longer and learn some of that samba (just joking, I'll never get that with my white ass, but I'm coming back, that's for sure)."
Nick from Franz Ferdinand
