A Look into Sao Paulo Brazil Crime Habits, Health and Hazards

Like any large city, in Sao Paulo Brazil crime exists – and that’s a fact. There are social issues, Sao Paulo poverty, and violence, but consider this: every large city of the world has these problems, and tourism still flourishes. Does knowing about it somehow make the concept of Sao Paulo Brazil crime any worse? Or does it make you a better informed traveller?

Knowing about the crime rate and social problems before heading to Sao Paulo shouldn’t make you fearful – instead, you’ll be more aware of the city and the heart of the people there. You’ll be aware of what inhabitants face on a daily basis, and won’t be tempted to look at the city as a place with glossy sheen – the city is home to millions of wonderful people who would love to see the issues in their city eliminated, but who would also still love to share the good parts of the city with you. To help you become a better informed traveller, here are some safety tips and information about Sao Paulo Brazil crime rates and current social problems.

Many of the safety issues in Sao Paulo revolve around money – be careful about where you handle money, and never discuss it in public or with someone you don’t know. Don’t have large quantities of cash in your hand if you’re inside a vehicle in slow traffic, as Sao Paulo is known for vehicle holdups. Although these usually happen at night, carry some extra American dollars with you during the day as well, just in case. If you hand over some cash, these holdups usually end without violence.

What about general statistics for Sao Paulo Brazil crime? The number one cause of death among youth from 15-24 is murder – 42% of violent crimes resulting in death have been through homicides. In fact, at least 15 million Brazilians are unable to read or write, which is a contributing factor to the level of poverty in the city. The problem is that there is very little legislation concerning firearms: in Sao Paulo state, there is one gun for every 74.5 people, with 95% of these guns being illegal.

Another issue in the country, as well as the city, is the amount of sex slavery. It is estimated that around 75,000 women are forced into prostitution or sex slavery across the European Union, usually recruiting women from Sao Paulo or Rio and then sending them over to Europe to work once they’ve been “trained”. (Paulo Coelho, a famous Brazilian writer, has written a great novel about such a happening, which you should read, called 11 Seconds)

For the past few years, local governments have been focusing on increasing public awareness of this drastic social Sao Paulo Brazil crime, and the numbers of women forced to work in the sex trade are now slowly decreasing.
It’s strongly advised not to buy favours from prostitutes, (also known as Sao Paulo garota de programa, acompanhantes de Sao Paulo, or simply Sao Paulo Brazil escort) as not only will this be supporting human slave trading and illegal syndicates, but might result in risk of sexual transmitted diseases or assaults and robbery.

DWC Airport would still be built fully anyway even if Dubai loses the 2020 bid . Because DXB is close to being at capacity.

Its very clear that you haven't any idea about Dubai. Most of that people that criticize Dubai doesn't know anything about the city. Isn't Dubai a city for being two times London. Isn't a City a City for being young?

This thread is starting to be insulting. It's really stupid that a comment saying ''I don't want Dubai to win'' recieve more likes than an argumented support to Dubai.

I hope you have sufficient intelligence to argument why.

I think it's natural that people get a little excitaded trying to defend their favourite citys...

Since we don't offend each other I think it's alright...

Otherwise there was news, statistics and personal experiences too... Somethings that you will read and make your personal impression about the theme... XD

Well, I think we already said too much negative things about the Candidate Citys... And don't illude yourselfs... Theres no Utopy on this planet so far...

So what about we discuss about the Theme of each city on their candidature?? And what they will add in the world on the future decades from now on??

(please correct me in PM... And i will edit with correct ortography)

Dubai will easily win, but be honest this is a tremendously weak group of cities, maybe they should just cancel it

Just can't understand why you like ekaterinburg so much!
I would not consider Ekaterinburg seriously.
I'm for Dubai. It's a wonder that they they were able to build such a great city in an unfriendly desert for several decades
What's great about this city? The many skyscrapers? There are way too much of them and some of them are just boring and look the same. And they build the skyscrapers so close together, the skyline just looks crowded. The whole city is a huge construction area. This city has nothing historical. It's freaking hot and slaves work there for a starvation wage. The landscape around dubai isn't very beautiful. Just my opinion. It's not all about money and skyscrapers.

SP needs it. SP need the money and the status the Expo can bring to a city. Rio got the Olympics, and SP, which is much bigger and richer than Rio, need this big event !

Sincerely, Dubai doesnt need this as SP does.

Oh, the ignorance...

There is slavery in Dubai. The fancy buildings are built by slaves. It is very easy to find much information on that.

As for women's rights..

You must be joking. Dubai's human rights are not up to par, and therefore it should not host a World's Expo.

Well, I really want Dubai to win and that was my 1st idea, I said to myself if Dubai doesn't win I will not go to the 2020 Expo. But then I thought about the other cities, out of all the rest, I think Brazil and Turkey had better chances. But then I thought to myself again, is it appropriate for Brazil to go for 2020 expo, they spent a lot of money on events already. Then Izmir, 3rd largest city of Turkey is ok, but now I think again out of all these countries Dubai is the best and I know they will win. "GO DUBAI" "GO EMIRATES" "GO UNITED ARAB EMIRATES"
