1st Day Mon, 14, May 2018 ( Sao Paulo )

Morning

Sao Paulo

The city of São Paulo is the biggest city in southern America with some 15 Million inhabitants from over 100 countries. The Paulistas, what people living in São Paulo are called, do basically two things: Work hard and professionally during the day and dine and party during the evening. São Paulo has some of the best museums and theaters to offer and you can admire modern architectural works right next to some colonial style houses.

There is also a Gourmet Lounge within this architectural beauty.

Midday

Lunch In Mercado Central (Unique!)

No doubt, you have never seen such a sandwich. It deserves to be stated in the Guinness Book of Records. And the best mortadella sandwich in São Paulo we find in the citys first grocery market, Mercado Municipal. Since 1933! They might not be on your nutritionist's diet plan but they are sooo delicious! Besides you'll walk around the market, so some exercise is already guaranteed.

Afternoon

City Tour Sao Paulo (4 Hours)

The city of São Paulo is the most important financial center in South America and has the most modern tertiary sector in Brazil. Its industrial park is responsible for around 50% of the national production and its commerce - a huge number if you consider that Brazil ranks among the 10 biggest Industrial Nations. The development boom at the end of the 19th century quickly transformed the landscape of the city, giving rise to new buildings and monuments that made it a grand metropolis. It is maybe not the most beautiful city but it can be very fascinating if you can "see behind the curtains".

Visit Japanese Area - Liberdade

Have you ever imagined traveling to Japan, without leaving São Paulo? This great metropolis allows these possibilities, and to visit the Liberdade neighborhood is to immerse yourself in Japanese culture and traditions.

Evening

19:00 Optional - Meal At Figueira Rubayat

Its name was given in the 16th century by the Portuguese during the hey days of sugar cane trade in Brazil. According to historians, blocks of sugar were made in conical molds of clay to be transported on ships. The shape given by these molds was similar to the peak, hence the name.

Visiting the top floor we are rewarded with a spectacular panoramic view of the Downtown, Dockland and Bay area.

Optional - Cultural Highlight: Circuit African Heritage

Archaeological studies and excavations have shown how the history and culture of Rio de Janeiro´s Port Region can shed light on the African Diaspora and the shaping of Brazilian society. A true cultural heritage.

Let's follow the path of lives of Africans and their descendents in the Port Region. The former Valongo and Empress Wharves represent the slaves´ arrival in Brazil. New Blacks Cemetery bears witness to the deplorable end assigned the mortal remains of peoples brought from the African continent. In the public square known as Largo do Depósito, Africans were sold into slavery. The Hanging Garden of Valongo symbolizes official history and its attempts to wipe out any traces of the slave traffic. Pedra do Sal was a place of resistance, celebration and gathering together. Lastly, the old Freguesia de Santa Rita school, which later became a major hub of black culture as the José Bonifácio Cultural Center, represents education and culture as instruments of freedom in our day.

Optional - Cultural Highlight: Museum Of Modern Art

Created in 1948, the museum shelters about 4.000 oeuvres which belonged to Gilberto Chateaubriand and represent the most important collection of Brazilian modern art. MAM has another 2.000 paintings of Brazilian and foreign artists like Picasso, Andy Warhol, Corbusier, among others. It has a library specialised in arts and a film archive with a fabulously rich collection of films. For its building were used straight lines modelled in visible concrete and an opened structure, which favours a feeling of continuity up to the ocean. The gardens, signed Burle Marx, include the building and the landscape, with huge construction sites full of stones and paths of imperial palms.

Considerations

The importance of using a good DMC in Brazil

1) Brazil is not inexpensive. A dinner for two at a steakhouse starts at US$100! A local DMC can negotiate the same product 30% less expensive.
2) Worried about security? Don't be: Rio and Sao Paulo have become as safe as major cities in the US. With a DMC knowing to avoiding the wrong areas you won’t have problems.
3) Brazilians work hard and get it done at the end; -but you must understand their particular pace: Things tend to get done in the last minute and only a good local knowledge helps you to understand when the situation is getting critical.
4) Bank transactions in Brazil are complex: Credit Cards charge about 5%; the currency is not freely convertible; Brazil has one of the highest interest rates in the world (almost 8% per month) and wires are complicated and taxed – it helps to have a local DMC with knowledge in fiscal and international financial transactions.
5) Hotels do not have the staff to deal with international requests as English is not universally spoken. On top, relationships come first, second and third in Brazil. This is why a local DMC has in most cases better rates than any worldwide agreement with hotel chains you may have.
6) Hotels in Rio and Sao Paulo are not big big houses as you might find in the US and Asia. You should anticipate room and conference space bookings.
7) Typically for booming countries traffic can be horrible. A DMC is vital to organize the logistic, especially as there is so much to see and to do during your stay.

Due to the various cultural and administrative complexities of the country, local advice and expertise is recommended from the early stages of project development. We are proud to do so for a quarter of a century.
