I was hoping to engage some England supporters ideas / advice for the forthcoming world cup - i.e. areas to stay in Sao Paulo, Belo Horizonte and Rio. Also areas where within these cities to have a pint or 10. I understand there is not the usual following of English so trying my best to find those that are heading out.
Sao Paulo - We have booked into the Jardins district for 3 nights (18th - 20th), and understand this is the place to go on a night out without getting tortured by local idiots. Opinions....
Belo Horizonte - yet to book accommodation for here. But we plan to fly here from SP on the 20th and stay till the 25th. Looking on the net Savassi and Loudres neighborhoods seem to be the places to go.... but is this an area you would book your hotel.
Rio - we are heading here after Belo till the 2nd July, I guess its a case of getting close as possible to the Copacabana in terms of accommodation although I am well aware this won't be cheap.
Basically we're looking to get in the areas where there is atmosphere and of course mix with supporters of other countries. Obviously there is the fan parks, but we're hoping for some BIG nights! Advice welcome from all!
