Judging by the number of visitors, Guia Hill is rather underrated, though I would recommend it as a must-see historical site, parkland, jogging path and viewpoint in Macau. Guia Hill is the highest natural point of Macau and offers splendid views of the Pearl River,...More

Contrary to some reviews, the walk up is leisurely and relaxed and not as steep or challenging as some online reviews made them out to be. Good after-dinner exercise.

The fortress and lighthouse are on the same site. It is located inside and on top of the recreational park. Locals come to the park to exercise and the fortress is a short uphill hike.

It was a nice cable car ride. I like the concept of having gym-like equipments and sports facilities around the area where active people can work out and play. Tried some and had fun!

It was quite an easy walk from Grand Lapa. I've attached a map that shows the path. We went in the morning around 9am and saw many locals doing their morning walks. Nice view and a different feel of macau.

You will be happy even though you have to hike some minutes with quite inclined slope that tests your health. However, the view there is nice and spectacular.

Its really some Portugese history in Macau. I really like to be here because it shows some history of Macau that appear to be really well mentained. You should be aware that it is not that accesbile though
