Best Cities in #Brazil for a Weekend Trip From Rio

#SãoPaulo

The sheer scope of São Paulo’s urban sprawl is mind-boggling. The bustling city covers nearly 3000 square miles, which means there is plenty of space for something of interest for every traveler. There’s incredible street food, fresh produce at the Mercado Municipal, and haute cuisine, like chef Alex Atala’s D.O.M. Check out Chef Atala’s suggestions for dining in São Paulo here. There is fine art at the São Paulo Art Museum, the century-spanning collection at the Museu Afro Brasil, and street art lining the avenidas. Souvenir shopping ranges from the Sunday outdoor markets on Avenida Paulista to the luxury shops in the Jardins district. Escape from the concrete jungle by strolling through Parque do Ibirapuera, the largest green space in the central city, or get away from it all by climbing to the top of the Banespa building for a 360-degree view of the city (or just grab a cocktail at Hotel Unique’s Skye Bar).

As with other big cities, it pays to be mindful of crime in São Paulo—avoid wearing flashy watches or jewelry, pay attention to your surroundings, and be aware of anyone getting too close. But don’t let fear stop you from enjoying this urban gem.

Check out #Brazil's Flip Festival

Flip

Every year since 2003, Flip has offered a unique experience infused with literature. Always staged together with the town that hosts it, the festival is more than an event, it is a cultural statement. As an ongoing interaction with the arts, it provides experiences focused above all on diversity.

On the margins of the Perequê-Açu River, in a marquee especially mounted for the festival, authors meet for conversations that cover different themes, including theater, cinema and science. Flip also offers an extensive programme that stays true to its founding principles: originality, intimacy, informality, a special meeting between writers and the public and, above all, permanent activities. ‘Flipinha’, ‘FlipZona’ and ‘FlipMais’ make up the festival programme, with activities that combine children’s and youth literature, performance, debates, theatre and the visual arts.

Every year, Flip pays tribute to a Brazilian author as a way of preserving, perpetuating, spreading and appreciating both the Portuguese language and the literature of Brazil. Chosen by the festival curator, the central themes are presented by a strong group of writers. Salman Rushdie, Don DeLillo, Ariano Suassuna, Isabel Allende, Neil Gailman, Angélica Freitas, Toni Morrison and Chico Buarque are just some of the names that have visited Paraty. As customary, presenting the new generation of authors is an essential part of the Flip programme.
