For some reason San Paolo is helipad central - maybe the traffic (and the crime rate) really are that bad. There is a danger of a jam in the air too as rich South Americans take to the sky like so many mosquitoes. In the centre of the upmarket Jardins district (think stores such as Versace, Armani, Mont Blanc, Louis Vuitton, Hermes), is hotel Emiliano. This tall glass tower is as slim as a rose vase and above the rooftop gym you'll find one of the city's highest helipads. For visitors to Sao Paulo who like this cutting-edge style The Luxury Travel Bible also loves Hotel Fasano in the same neighbourhood.
