Go to Avenida Paulista. You have some big malls there, you get a very ‘São Paulo vibe’, some restaurants, some local stores. If you go on the weekend you can get even some local fairs and music.

It all depends on what kind of shopping you would like. São Paulo has over 20 large malls and lots of street shopping areas. The most sophisticated (and expensive as well) malls are: JK Iguatemy; Cidade Jardim; and Iguatemy. The largest malls are Ibirapuera; Morumby; and Shopping Norte. Except for Shopping Norte, they are all located in the southern part of the city (“Zona Sul”). As for street shopping areas, the region at and around “Rua Oscar Freire” (in the neighborhood called “Jardim Paulista” in “Zona Sul”) is certainly the most expensive and fun to be at. Popular shopping areas, always crowded, such as “Rua 25 de março” (in the downtown area); Brás (near downtown in ”Zona Leste”); Largo 13 (in “Zona Sul”) are also sort of fun to be at as well. Have fun !!!

The best way to get to know the city is usually with a private city tour. The city has lots of things to see and it's intense. To feel the best of Sao Paulo the way to do it is with a private guide.
Mac museum, Ibirapuera Park, paulista Av and so many other places.

Ladies Clothes and kids tshirts.
Maybe you would like to walk around Rua Oscar Freire, visit Havaianas Store - it's very nice to check its design as well! For clothes shopping, you could visit any shopping mall near your hotel (maybe Shopping Iguatemi and have lunch at Ritz Restaurant). If you are seeking cheap clothes, you could walk around Rua José Paulino, near Luz Station, but keep in mind it's city center, so it's better to go in the morning, without kids and with lots of attention to avoid pick pockets. Have fun!

To have a nice shopping experience, you can go to Oscar Freire street (and its surroundings, in the Jardins neighbourhood). It is very close to the Paulista avenue, which is not a fancy place to look for clothes (it's a 3km avenue full of business offices and hurried people). But trust me: if you go to 25 de Março street (as someone mentioned here) you gotta go accompanied by some local guide, cause it's a extremely crowded area and it can be really dangerous to tourists.

The most fashionable malls are the Shopping Cidade jardim, the JK Iguatemi (with the letter I, not Y) and the Iguatemi. "But they have the same name??", you could ask yourself. No: they're both part of the Iguatemi group, but they are 2 kilometers from each one.

Shopping Iguatemi: https://iguatemi.com.br/saopaulo
Shopping Iguatemi JK: https://iguatemi.com.br/jkiguatemi

And, for a more alternative shopping and food experience, you have the Vila Madalena district, where you can walk its hillsides (be prepared) and photograph its graphite alley, the Beco do Batman, super cool. Vila Madalena it's a walking experience, where you better go by taxi or Uber, cause it is difficult to find a parking spot in there.

Good luck!
