BRAZIL – Two days leisure in Sao Paulo: beach & city tour

Sao Paulo - City Center
Sao Paulo - City Center

My first trip to the South American continent! Which for sure would not be my first one.

Day 1 – Arrival

Took the direct flight Amsterdam to Sao Paulo by KLM; arrival early evening at the Novotel downtown. NOT a nice hotel. Not again next year.

Day 2 – Relax day

It’s hot these days in Sao Paulo so we thought lets go to the beach, that’s a one and a half hour drive. Oh, what did we a mistake! It was cloudy, and we Europeans thought, hell just 2 hours on the beach, don’t need anti sun burn. BIG MISTAKE! We were like lobsters all next days and all business partners laughing for this beginners error! But it was a great day with the coconuts on the beach.

Day 3 through 6 – Business

Business, starting up new markets!

Day 7 – City tour Sao Paulo

Today hired a private driver + guide to efficiently explore Sao Paulo. Checked out most if not all historical places. To do it more in a relaxing way 2 days would be better!

Day 8 – Departure

Back home to Amsterdam on KLM flight.

  1. I am staying outside of Sao Paulo for six months, and can’t wait to go into the city to explore it some more. Looks like you made the most of a short trip. What was the name of the beach you visited?

    • Hi,
      to be honest i don’t know the beach name anymore. it was not one of the beaches on the way to rio.
      but it was like over an hour drive from SP!
