With the largest population in the Western Hemisphere and over 2,500 skyscrapers scattered across its skyline, Sao Paulo is a massive metropolis with more personality than most realize. Visit the neo-gothic Sao Paulo Cathedral, the largest cathedral in South America with a capacity of up to 8,000 people. Head over to the Museu do Futebol to discover Brazil’s infectious love for the beautiful game and choose a Sao Paulo club to support.

Sao Paulo’s neighborhoods have their own distinct personalities, making the city feel like several destinations instead of just one. Check out Liberdade, home to the biggest community of Japanese people outside of Japan, to pig out on sushi and ramen and relax in its Oriental gardens. Move on to the bohemian Pinheiros neighborhood for live Samba dancing and free-flowing caipirinhas. If you need to escape the city streets for a while, make your way to Ibirapuera Park, home to 2 million square feet of quiet green bliss in the middle of one of the world’s busiest cities.
