Don't let the city's nickname--"Land of Drizzle"--dampen your spirits during a trip to Sao Paulo.
Kids will enjoy National Sanctuary of Our Lady of Aparecida and Catavento Cultural e Educacional. Change things up with these side-trips from Sao Paulo: Aparecida (Church of Sao Geraldo, Matriz Basilica Nossa Senhora Aparecida, &more), Santissima Virgem Parish (in Sao Bernardo Do Campo) and Juquehy Beach (in Sao Sebastiao). There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Paulista Avenue, admire the landmark architecture of Antigo Banco de Sao Paulo, see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and catch a live performance at SESC Bertioga.

To find other places to visit, more things to do, traveler tips, and tourist information, use the Sao Paulo itinerary planning site .

Doha, Qatar to Sao Paulo is an approximately 19.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of car and flight. You'll gain 6 hours traveling from Doha to Sao Paulo due to the time zone difference. Plan for somewhat warmer temperatures traveling from Doha in February, with highs in Sao Paulo at 34°C and lows at 23°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 12th (Wed) so you can travel to Rio de Janeiro.
