Plane Spotting at Macau Airport

Can anyone suggest some good locations (ideally something that is easily accessible by public transport) for viewing airplanes arriving and departing from Macau Airport?

Thanks :)

The best place I know of is at the top of the hill right next to the airport - it's one of the very few places in Macau which has not been developed, so unfortunately there is no public transport, but you can walk up from a number of access points - I think the closest trailhead to public transport is in the Lake Garden near the Chinese Cemetery. Or get a taxi to take you up to the Tai Tam Shan Park (大潭山郊野公園).

Thanks for that. Google maps and street view doesn't really show any trail access from Av. Son On. which is where the cemetery seems to be. That said, the street view is nearly 10 years old!

However, it looks like stopping at Jardim Do Lago/Edificio Do Lago, there's a road that leads up the hill to a set of trails that will get me there. It's a longer way around, but probably easier overall?

The way should be much faster and walkable by going through Golden Crown China Hotel and arrive at Estr. da Ponta da Cabrita. https://goo.gl/maps/jqR5H6ZWbuF2

For Tourist I would never recommend walking through the Cemetery - The entrance of the cemetery on the Av. Son On side is hard to find as it is at the back of Audi Service Center and the hygiene is mediocre around that area.

BTW, I would rather check the view right outside Taipa Ferry Terminal which is right next to the restricted area of Macau Airport.
