Top 10 Hotels in Sao Paulo, Brazil | With a city population of 11 million people, Sao Paulo is the largest city in Brazil, located in the south-east of the country, and acts as the financial centre as well as a hub of culture, arts, activity and nightlife. It is the capital city of its state, and although its tourism is slightly overshadowed by coastal cities like Rio de Janeiro and Salvador, it is full of local culture and quintessential Brazilian energy. San Paulo is the 12th largest city in the world, the most populous in the southern hemisphere and the wealthiest in the country, making it one of the most important urban centres, not only in Brazil but the world.

Sao Paulo is divided into different districts containing major landmarks, and one of its most iconic locations is Avenida Paulista, a central business and cultural area, made up of a combination of old and new architecture. The historic centre is another major hub, full of museums, cultural centres and theatres, including the Theatro Municipal and Sala Sao Paulo, both famous opera houses, and the Pacaembu Stadium, where visitors can witness an inherent part of Brazilian culture, football. There are numerous shopping opportunities in downtown Sao Paulo, with streets and centres dedicated to fashion brands, such as Cidade Jardim or the area surrounding Avenida Ipiranga. Another main appeal of the city is its buzzing nightlife, from high-quality restaurants selling typical Brazilian cuisine to stylish bars and cafes selling world class drinks, to a diverse collection of clubs providing all night entertainment.

Three airports serve Sao Paulo, called Guarulhos, Viracopos and Congonhas, with the main international airport, Guarulhos, located only 40 kilometres from the city centre and connected to public transport facilities. Major bus terminals provide local services in the city, connections throughout Brazil and links to nearby countries. Within Sao Paulo, visitors can travel by train or metro, which navigate the key areas of the city or take local buses to more specific locations.

The original village of Sao Paulo was founded in 1554 by Jesuit priests, who developed the settlement into a religious centre until it became an official city in 1711. Its financial reputation developed throughout the 19th Century, with a growing economy primarily through coffee exports. Today, it is a centre for international banking and has become a major stock exchange hub and key cultural tourist city of Brazil.
