Sao Paulo is full of art and cultural activities. Due to the wealth and the lack of beaches, the city offers a wide range of museums, parks, galleries, theatres, a fine ballet and opera company. The nightlife is also attractive and the gastronomy is rich due to the vast numbers of immigrants which have brought their specialities here. If you are a soccer fan, matches in modern and comfortable stadiums make a great afternoon out. For some traditionally Paulistano activities, look for local street markets on different days of the week and head the pastel stall. This fried pastries delicacies are a must. And order a 'caldo de cana' too, this is sugar cane juice freshly squeezed with pineapple or lime.
