From the observation deck of the Banespa Building, you can begin to appreciate the sheer scale of Sao Paulo, a city of 20 million people.
Its neighborhoods each have a distinct identity, and merit exploration on foot. Bexiga is an Italian area with great restaurants. Liberdade is the focus of the Japanese community. Vila Madalena is full of artists. This hard-working city takes its clubbing equally seriously. You can find everything from mega-clubs with celebrity DJs to dark little rock venues. The morning after a big night, you will probably want to find somewhere for brunch. Thick sandwiches of Italian mortadella ham are a popular option.
