Looking for something different?

Sitting in the Jardins District of São Paulo, Brazil, is a towering 80-meter ship that would fit better in an ocean than a residential neighbourhood. This giant inverted arch, complete with porthole-shaped windows, is the peculiar Hotel Unique, which welcomes guests aboard a boat-shaped modernist fantasy.

For those who want to spend a more reflective day, the Zu Lai Temple, located less than 30 minutes from São Paulo, is the place to go. It is the biggest Buddhist temple in South America, with beautiful gardens and temples, and worth a visit even for those uninterested in meditation classes, which seem to spring up on Sunday out of nowhere, with visitors invited to join in.

São Roque, the best state in São Paulo for wine lovers. Take a tour around the Quinta and sample a selection of the different Brazilian wines.
