A great viewing point of Macau and Taipa! Not as crowded as other tourist viewing places and there a number of shops and temples in the area to explore as well.

Climbing up the hill is a pain, but once up there the view is astonishing. The little chapel right atop a hill gives a panoramic view of the entire Macau.

It should be the third time I was here. It’s more than 5 years since I was here. As there’s no coach and there’re steep slopes, the place was quite. The view was great. Three bridges of Macau could be viewed from here.

This is the best high point of Macau as it is easier to get to and free. The road is very steep so you need to be physically able to get there if you walk but cars are ok on the tight steep roads. There...More
