Going to a club to have fun, keep in mind that Brazilian nightlife has its own flirting etiquette. This is a kind of game, the rules of which affect everyone without exception. For example, a man should never talk with a woman who does not interest him in a romantic way. It is perfectly normal and even expected to kiss a woman 5 minutes after you first met. On the contrary, if this is not done, a woman may find the man a coward or feel herself uninteresting. If a woman refuses to kiss a man, he can go to look for a more enthusiastic companion. At the same time, women should never talk to men they like, so they always visit clubs and bars wearing their best outfits. Despite the kisses, a woman will never go to the man's home on the first night - this is considered completely immoral.
Those who prefer the daytime also have things to do in Brazil. One of the interesting must-visit places is the rusting Paranapiacaba British railway station in Santo André jungles. From the middle of the 19th century until the 1940s, trains carried people from Sao Paulo to the Port in Santos along it. Here, tourists will find overgrown rails, rusty remains of carriages, and even a small replica of Big Ben. Nature lovers must find time to visit Parnamirim famous for the ancient cashew tree that spreads for 8,000 square meters and forms a real forest.
