SP seems to be a vibrant, modern metropolis. Considering that the city is home to over 10 million people, it doesn't look crowded or congested.

This looks like a place where I would love to spend a couple of weeks. Hopefully in a few years I will.

The pictures don't show it, but there are really crowded parts, like old dowtown. Ad you can be sure that the main avenues become parking lots in hush hour.

Awesome Sao Paulo looks amazing! very modern and cosmopolitan; would love to visit one day. Is it foreigner friendly? As in, would I be able to get by with just English (or Spanish )? and is there a lot of crime? or am I fine just by not going to the wrong parts of town?

Tks ! MexiQuebecois!


I guess Sao paulo is friendly with foreigners but I was born and living here so I can be biased.

Many foreigners complain that few people speak English in the streets and this is a significant reality in sao paulo.

But it is obvious that in hotels and restaurants you can find people who speak English or Spanish.

The city's homicide rate is 10 per thousand inhabitants, which is tolerable according to World Health Organization.

Naturally, in slums and poor places have a higher rate of violence.

Sao paulo is away from the coast, so has a center and developed well-defined areas and poorest areas are located in the outskirts of the city.


I do walk in the street with my camera hanging on the neck in all excursions trhu the city that I have never been robbed. And look at all I have done 56 trips to take photos to my threads in the SSC.

Wondeful city. I don't know why but I prefer to know São Paulo first than Rio de Janeiro. It looks more agradable
