It must be one of those cities you need to experience to actually like it, cos from the pictures it just looks messy and chaotic. The "skyscrapers" look basically all the same (from above they look like huge towers of concrete, and some weird antennas here and there), I personally don't find it appealing at all, it's not a place I would be interested in visiting.

I do think Sao Paulo is a city to be experienced!! It feels so good when you are there... it's so special when you are walking on Paulista Avenue or in front of Banespa's tower and see the Martinelli building in a single stare... it feels like the whole world has passed by its avenues (and depending on the hour, you can actually "see" the whole world passing by (LOL), and helped to build the city!

It's amazing!

It's the concrete, steel and glass jungle, but it's also civilization!!! It's chaos, but it's also glory!

I live 1 hour and 30 minutes away from São Paulo, and I can say you really need to experience the city to know it.
Everytime you visit it seems different, that crazy atmosphere, the chaotic traffic, everything is so huge...
And it's imense, so dense...

It's absolutely unique, everybody should know it...

I can't wait to live there.

Yeah, it's very very sad of what is happening these days Altough it wouldn't affect you as a tourist too much. But you can't blame just the mafia alone for the situation. The prisons are extremly packed (90'000 Paulistanos are inprisoned in the whole state), the big drug- and gundealing centers and heads are inside and coordinate everything from there. Wardens are mostly ex-criminals as well (although after this scandal a few years ago, it changed a bit - but only a bit...) and as the police as a whole underpayed and therefore highly corruptive etc. I hope this revolts are not unheard in the politics and something changes finally - not only by pure repression, a second Carandiru-massacer is not the solution in the long run!

the last pics show the city from the standpoint of someone close to its extreme north; photos from the standpoint of someone located in the extreme southern quarters of São Paulo would be a lot more impressive, since they would show an area 3 times bigger than the one covered by these pics.
