Total São Paulo: A Guide to the Unexpected

From hidden bars serving up $2.50 caipirinhas and tiny boutiques, to the best clubs and vintage markets, Total São Paulo: A Guide to the Unexpected is a must-have travel resource for discerning creative types traveling to one of the world’s most up-and-coming cities. Written by Phuong-Cac Nguyen, an American journalist who has been reporting and breathing São Paulo’s pop culture/lifestyle beat for years, this beautifully designed 176-page paperback guidebook packs in places off the beaten track in 10 essential neighborhoods. Sprinkled among the candid, gorgeously shot photographs are also 11 easy-to-read, illustrated maps and 17 interviews with São Paulo VIPs who give the inside scoop on the metropolis’ best spots.

This truly is an awesome book--and a must read for anyone planning to travel to Brazil. It is full of fun and exciting places to go--including the hidden gems of São Paulo! And the guide is also such an easy and fun read- with maps, large photos, interviews and blurbs all throughout the book.

There is a book signing and release party next Saturday, May 9th! Check out the details below:
