Tell Us Your São Paulo Travel Tips

OK, I’m pretty sure that the movie Brazil exaggerated some things, like probably Brazil isn’t a futuristic dystopia with a duct fetish, and now that I think about it that movie doesn’t seem to take place in Brazil at all! OK, my opening bit is over. Let’s talk travel tips for South America’s biggest city, which Wikivoyage calls “underrated” by tourists who ignore it in favor of Rio de Janeiro and Salvador.

Hack Your City isn’t just for tourists—it’s also for anyone who finds themselves in a given city, or who lives there long-term. So as always, your tip doesn’t have to be for visitors.

Each Monday on Hack Your City, we ask readers for your best tips on a city: driving tips, restaurant recs, things to do, and any other advice for visitors and locals. Then on Thursday, we present the best comments. We’re working our way around the U.S. and around the globe.

What’s underrated? What places deserve a few more discerning visitors? What are the best alternatives to tourist traps and mediocre “town favorites”? What’s the weirdest thing you like there, the most acquired taste?

How should a visitor approach the city? What attitude should they adopt? What local traditions, behaviors, and laws should they be aware of? How can they get along with people? What problems is the city dealing with? When are the best times to visit, and what are the special events to attend?

What’s it like long-term? Residents, what do you love and hate about the city? What do you recommend to other residents? How do you hack your commute, and where do you people-watch? What mistakes do new residents make—any common misconceptions or mispronunciations? Where do you go when you want to get out of town for a day or a week?

Finally, how has São Paulo’s vibe changed over the last few years? What should someone know if they haven’t been back in a while?

Leave your tips in the comments below, and we’ll feature the best ones. (If you agree with someone else’s tip, add an extra detail, we love that!) Then come back Thursday for a new post with the highlights.
