Beatriz Machado’s Guide To Sao Paulo
Beatriz Machado represented Brazil at the Elite Model Look World Final 2017, where she won a place in the Top 15. Here, she shares her insider tips and day-to-day favourites from one of the world’s biggest cities.
Why I love Sao Paulo
São Paulo is known as the "jungle of stones". It is a huge city and you will always discover something new. I moved to Sao Paulo 9 months ago, before I lived in Votuporanga. Sao Paulo is a unique city where you discover cultures from many countries which is incredible! My advice to anyone who wants to visit São Paulo: Make the most of your time here! It is a beautiful city mainly at night.
Best for dinner
My favorite restaurant is the Café de La Musique - my favorite dish is the lobster! There are so many amazing dishes in Brazil – it would be hard to choose my favourite! But one of the main typical dishes is the feijoada. The last time I went to Café de la Musique was 2 weeks ago, I went with my friends.
Best for sightseeing
There are so many beautiful places to visit in Sao Paulo, but my favorite is undoubtedly Parque Ibirapuera and Avenida Paulista. These are very beautiful places that bring me peace!
Best for shopping
My favorite shop? Oh my God, there are so many! But my favorites are Forever 21 and Victoria Secret. I like Forever 21 clothes because they have clothes that are my style. Ever since I was a kid, I always fell in love with Victoria Secrets! Of course, one day I dream of becoming a Victoria’s Secret Angel. My favorite angel is Lais Ribeiro! Hahaha Brazilian bombshell. Some people say that I look a lot like Lais Ribeiro!
Best to work out
I really enjoy exercising outdoors! I like to run in parks and enjoy the view, like the Parque do Ibirapuera.
