I will have a Saturday evening and a full Sunday for local sight-seeing in Sao Paulo. A few characteristics of my 1.5 days available in Sao Paulo being:
- Solo traveler, will be staying quite close to the central business area
- Do not know Portuguese (read, speak or write), so left to English alone
- Don't mind walking, using metro or local buses
- Will have Google-maps with offline map of city available on my phone with GPS 'on'
Not interested in shopping malls, but definitely like seeing local traditional marketplace, good architecture, local art, culture, historic monuments or places of historic significance, anything unique about the place.
Given the above, can I imagine planning sightseeing without spending a lot of money? Idea is to spend quality time at a leisurely pace, and not necessarily cover every possible touristy spot!
