** As a direct result, São Paulo has more heliports than any other city in the world (roughly a hundred), and has the largest fleet of helicopters of any single city on Earth (about 500), clocking in at about than 700 helicopter flights a day. It's pretty-much the only way to ensure punctuality. Any ''Paulistano'' who possesses a helicopter pilot's license is guaranteed to '''never''' be unemployed.

* Its high proportion of immigrants. Nearly everyone in São Paulo has some sort of immigrant ancestry, and almost half of that from Italy. It has the largest community of expat Japanese and descendants in the world, and the largest Jewish community in Latin America. It also has sizeable Turkish, Lebanese, Chinese, Korean, Greek, Bolivian, and Polish communities. The Italian influence is responsible for a great deal of the cultural differences with the rest of the country, and to the particular accent that ''Paulistanos'' have. "Brazilian" culture, being largely an amalgam of regional cultures from other parts of the country, is ever-so-subtly foreign to paulistanos.

* Its [[BlatantLies gentle and sunny]] weather. São Paulo is euphemistically nicknamed ''Cidade da Garoa'' by older Brazilians (Lit. "city of drizzle"). In reality, the characteristic drizzle, if it was ever this common, now mostly gives way to violent, sudden thunderstorms. Most days in São Paulo will see a mixture of sunlight and clouds, with amenable temperatures. Sudden, heavy, but short-lived rains are always a possibility, especially cose to 4-6PM. These are referred to as "pancadas de chuva", or a "pounding of rain", for lack of a better translation. Strong winds are not uncommon, and sudden, unpredictable temperature shifts are considered the norm. The monsoons during the summer cause floods - usually tragic, thanks to insufficient drainage. Most if not all small streams in the city have been paved over, leaving underground galleries that can't accommodate the water flow during heavy rain, and both major rivers are surrounded by multi-lane highways.

In reality, the characteristic drizzle, if it was ever this common, now mostly gives way to violent, sudden thunderstorms. São Paulo sees very little sunlight - it is overcast most days of the year [[note]]Actually, São Paulo has a lot of sunlight, even during the wet season. Its ever-changing weather may fill the sky with clouds and have rain for two hours and then get sunny again. However, this might be counted as a cloudy day. [[/note]]. Its weather resembles a warmer Seattle. Paulistanos seem to sometimes [[OurVampiresAreDifferent shy away from the sun]] in warmer Brazilian cities.

Most if not all small streams in the city have been paved over, leaving underground galleries that can't accommodate the water flow during heavy rain, and both major rivers are surrounded by multi-lane highways.
* Its food. With so many ethnic groups put together, and such a great Italian population (Nearly 40% of S. Paulo's population was Italian at one point) the city has great restaurants. São Paulo has something of a gourmet culture. Sushi bars are ubiquitous, as is the more drinking-oriented kind of bar - and a bar in São Paulo is only truly successful if it also serves good food. In particular, Paulistanos, much like New Yorkers, believe their city to be the only place on Earth to get a decent pizza and will scoff at pale imitations produced in other parts of the country. Their pizza is fairly different from the American or Italian variations on the dish, but no less loved and delicious for it. Just don't put [[BerserkButton ketchup on it]].
