    • Parque do Ibirapuera

      Culture and chilling
      Ibirapuera Park, or the Parque do Ibirapuera as its called locally, is the place where São Paolo's residents come for recreation, similar to Central Park in New York. It's both a city park and the cultural centre of the city. The park is nearly two square kilometres in size and attracts about 300,000 visitors each week, most of them at weekends. The park houses five museums, a public auditorium and a planetarium.

      Need souvenirs? How about original Native American crafts like sculptures, carvings, jewellery or hand-tatted lace? This shop sells folk art and gifts crafted by indigenous tribes and communes. Each item has a small tag showing the name of the artist and the details of the project. Next to this non-profit store is a little museum dedicated to the Xingu Indians that is worth a short visit.

    • Shopping Iguatemi

      Most popular mall
      In Rio they joke that malls are the beaches of the Paulistanos. They are in fact a popular meeting place for locals. Though countless shopping centres have cropped up, the oldest is still the most popular, the Iguatemi, which opened back in 1966. This place has something for every budget; pricey designer boutiques stand alongside more affordable mega-stores.

    • Museu Afro Brasil de São Paulo

      Africa meets Brasil
