Don't let the city's nickname--"Land of Drizzle"--dampen your spirits during a trip to Sao Paulo.
For shopping fun, head to Paulista Avenue or Mercado Municipal de São Paulo. Get some cultural insight at Pinacoteca do Estado de Sao Paulo and Museu de Arte de Sao Paulo Assis Chateaubriand - MASP. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Sao Paulo: Aparecida (Memorial da Devocao Nossa Senhora Aparecida, National Sanctuary of Our Lady of Aparecida, &more), Fundacao Serra do Japi (in Jundiai) and Pico do Olho d'agua (in Mairipora). And it doesn't end there: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, identify plant and animal life at Bosque das Cerejeiras, and get into the urban bustle at The Julio Prestes Cultural Center - Sala Sao Paulo.
