HOW TO STAY SAFE IN BRAZIL – in today’s episode, I talk about Brazil and staying safe when travelling in South America’s beautiful country. A couple of weeks before posting this video, a British family were on holiday in Rio de Janeiro and took a wrong turn into a favela with their hire car. They were shot at and the women in the passenger seat was injured. It’s very important to be alert while here in Brazil and take a few common-sense safety precautions…

Driving in Brazil is something a lot of people want to now about - should tourists hire a car and drive themselves while here? Disclaimer: this is a big decision and something you should thoroughly research, but I drive in Brazil and get on fine.

10 Things NOT To Do in Brazil

Get more Tips here!
Brazil is a beautiful country with attractive people, breathtaking sites, vibrant nightlife and of course the 2016 Olympics!

The Zika virus is mainly transferred by mosquitoes and the highest probability of danger is posed to pregnant women, who should consider avoiding the area entirely. For everyone else, practice safe sex, wear lots of mosquito repellent, and wear long sleeves and pants.

Don't Speak Spanish
Many visitors travel to Brazil expecting to hear Spanish, but unlike its South American neighbors, Brazil’s native language is Portuguese! Don’t be that ignorant tourist attempting to converse with the locals in broken Spanish.

Don't Flash the Cash
Although Brazil is a relatively safe country, there are still many poor areas. Don’t wear your most expensive watch or wave around your new camera, because it will be pocketed.

Don't Make the OK Sign!
It is a highly offensive rude gesture in Brazil. However, thumbs up does mean something similar to okay, literally “beleza” or “beauty,” and is frequently used.

Don't drink alone
It is customary practice in Brazil to share your “estupidamente gelada” or 'stupidly cold beer' with others. Most bars only sell beer in 700 ml bottles and sometimes even strangers will show up with their own glasses.

Don't Lose Your Consumption Card
Many bars and nightclubs will operate using a consumption card, for each customer to record food and drink orders. Patrons are expected to settle their bill before leaving, and not doing so results in large fines.

Don't be Impatient
Things move at their own pace in Brazil. Long lines are common for everything from ATMs to grocery stores, so be prepared to wait patiently.

Don't Forget the Amazon
Don’t be afraid to venture out into the more remote areas. Take a trip to the Amazon Rainforest, Iguaçu Falls, smaller towns like Olinda and Ouro Preto or travel to the Fernando de Noronha archipelago to experience some of Brazil’s best kept secrets.

Brazil is still a developing country, and you will come across extreme poverty, favelas, drug-torn cities and rude people. Don’t ever visit the favelas alone as they are run by drug lords and can be extremely dangerous.

Don't Try to Enter Without a Visa!
There are only a few visa exempt countries (mainly South American and Caribbean nations), the U.S. is not one of them. Brazil requires a visa for visitors traveling from Canada, and most European, Asian and African countries too. However, the process is very straightforward.

Do you think Brazil has benefited economically by hosting the Olympics?
Or has the Zika Virus held back too many tourists?

IS SÃO PAULO SAFE? 🤔🛑 The Real Brazil 🇧🇷

In this week’s video from São Paulo , we travel around the city to some of the major tourist attractions and assess whether or not they are safe.

We start things off at the São Paulo Cathedral in Centro where for the first time in all our times filming, we felt like we shouldn’t take our big filming camera out, instead we filmed on an iPhone. There were plenty of people around, including police officers and a lot of other tourists but we also felt like there were a lot of people watching and scooping the area. We also made our way into the beautiful cathedral to explore it.

Later we made our way just up the street to the Liberdade area of São Paulo, which happens to have the largest Japanese population outside of Japan. We felt much safer here. Of course, while in the area we had to have some sushi and Japanese cuisine.

Later in the day we headed to one of the main streets in the whole city called Paulista Avenue. Because it was the weekend, the entire street was shut down for pedestrians, bikers, scooters and skateboarders. There were also loads of street performers and vendors.

Lastly we headed back to our very nearby hotel, the InterContinental São Paulo to show you around our One bedroom Executive Suite and the amenities of the hotel.

São Paulo, Brazil’s vibrant financial center, is among the world's most populous cities, with numerous cultural institutions and a rich architectural tradition. Its iconic buildings range from its neo-Gothic cathedral and the 1929 Martinelli skyscraper to modernist architect Oscar Niemeyer’s curvy Edifício Copan. The colonial-style Pátio do Colégio church marks where Jesuit priests founded the city in 1554.

Visit Sao Paulo - The DON'Ts of Sao Paulo, Brazil

Visiting Sao Paulo, Brazil, whether for work or play can be extremely rewarding with amazing museums and shopping, but there are a few things you should not do when you go to Sao Paulo. This video covers the Don'ts of Visiting Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Filmed in Sao Paulo State, Brazil
Copyright Mark Wolters 2017
1. Don't expect to get anywhere quickly in Sao Paulo. With so many people, cars and craziness it will take you longer than what google says it will to get anywhere.
2. Don't skip the Mercado Municipal! This Sao Paulo tradition is amazing. From amazing fruit to the best bologna or sorry Mortadella sandwich you ever ate.
3. Don't skip out on eating non-Brazilian food while in Sao Paulo. There are tons of amazing places, foods, restaurants and styles for you to enjoy!
4. Don't lose your wits. Pay attention! Sao Paulo has a reputation for crime for a reason.
5. Don't expect a beach vacation. Sao Paulo is not a Brazilian beach city, it is a cultural, shopping, museum, business hub for South America.
