There are numerous concert halls and theatres such as The British Cultural Centre, Goethe Institute and Instituto Cervantes for culture vultures booking tickets on flights to this metropolis.

The Sao Paulo-Guarulhos International Airport is the primary international gateway serving the metropolis of Sao Paulo and its nearby areas. Billed as one of the largest airports in South America, this terminal serves as the hub for Brazil's national operator TAM Airlines. Located 25kms away from the city centre, this modern airport is well connected to the city and nearby areas by cheap bus services, metro rail as well as taxis. Travels seeking to journey onwards to leading destinations in Brazil can easily avail domestic flights from this airport. Passenger amenities available at this airport include retail shopping facilities, currency exchangers, ATMs and snazzy restaurants.
The national carrier of UK, British Airways and Brazil's flag carrier TAM Airlines are considered to be among the top choices for netting flights to Sao Paulo from the UK due to higher operations frequency. Leading American and European airlines that operate scheduled flights to the metropolis from the UK include American Airlines, US Airways, Delta Air Lines, United Airlines, Air France, Lufthansa and KLM Royal Dutch. Other top picks among Britons seeking air tickets to Sao Paulo from London Heathrow include Air Canada and Alitalia. Only a few of these flights operate non-stop with most featuring one or multiple stops at hub airports.
As a leading tourist destination in Brazil, the metropolis of Sao Paulo is home to a wide range of hotels and accommodations ranging across various price points. Top luxury hotels in the metropolis include Farsano, Emiliano, Sheraton, InterContinental, Renaissance Sao Paulo, Patachocas Eco Resort, Etoile George, Transamerica Prime Paradise, Grand Hyatt and Tivoli Mofarrej. Apart from these numerous popular budget hotels operate in Sao Paulo like Ibis, Tres Powers, Estrela, Joamar, Norbilis, Calandre, Slaveiro Slim Congonhas and Internacional Sao Paulo. It makes sense to stay at hotels located near a Metro/train station because taxi/bus services within the city are often unreliable.
The weather of Sao Paulo, though tropical, is quite mild and usually a lot cooler as compared to the rest of Brazil. Those looking for the most pleasant weather conditions for a beach holiday should try for the summer months. However, the considerably higher tourist traffic during the period tends to make netting cheap flights and accommodations tricky. For those who seek deals on air tickets and hotels, the spring months are the best bet though the weather is slightly cooler than the summer months. Autumn is typically the wettest period of the year hence travel plans may be hampered by rainfall.
