About Community

Rent a Local Friend is a global platform that connects people who love to travel with those who are passionate about where they live and have a good story to tell. More than a simple walk, we seek the sharing of local tips and contents, information that will not be revealed in any travel book or guides and the most importantly thing, the essence of each culture and the local spirit. All of this is done in a spontaneous, genuine, collaborative and interest-based way, allowing people to connect with those who have similarities or characteristics in common, providing a complete immersion in the next destination to be known.

About Paulista avenue

Paulista avenue today almost didn't remember the aristocracy residential adress it was 100 years ago, but still is a place to see and to be seen. From the time it was a city home for the cofee barons only remained 3 buildings, and now is more democratic that it was a century ago. In its almost 2km lenght, it has the some of the principal museums, 2 green areas, 2 shopping malls and many, many stores, including the biggest brazilian fast fashion brands, which stores in this adress are really big. On Christmas, a beautiful decoration usually takes place, in New Year's Eve a big concert with a 15 minutes firework show celebrates every 31st december the year to come and every sunday, the day closed for (heavy) traffic, many people come and walk in the middle of the street. The best days to visit Paulista avenue is on Sunday and Tuesday, when the museus is free entrance. There is a huge concentration of hotels and restaurants in the surroundings. When you get here, is good to have some cash, because Paulista avenue and the region itself is still a noble adress and the atractions might not be cheap (at least for me).
