Vista Chinesa
Oct 2019
We did a jeep tour that included a visit to Parque Nacional Da Tijuca and the Vista Chinesa. It was much more relaxing than walking or cycling there.

There is a pagoda that lends itself nicely with the theming in honour of the importation of tea to Brazil from China.

There is only one reason to visit and make sure you bring plenty of mosquito repellent. The views over Rio de Janeiro. It certainly will make you say wow.

As well as the views there are birds to spot and you might see monkeys.

Nice views

If you happen to be in the area you can get good panoramic views of Rio from here. The pagoda is nice but there is no seating and not much to it other than a scenic overview. Not worth going out of your way for.

The most beautiful place to see Rio! Go and see it in person! Sunrise and sunset is the best time to visit!

What a view
Jan 2020 • Couples
Probably closer to a 5.5 if you could rate it like that
Simple yet stunning is how I'd describe it. It's a lookout on a road high in the mountains, as a celebration to the Chinese workers who helped build the mountain side roads, sounds very simple yet the views are worth the trip up there.
A great opportunity to get some postcard (do they still make postcards) quality photos and selfies with the city of Rio to the ocean in the background

Another thing you need to see

A place that you need to visit if you do not like crowded. It was peaceful. You can see amazing views of Rio, Copacabana, Christ the Redeemer, and of Sugar Loaf. And you will find Chinese building there. Maybe that’s why it called vista chinesa.

Breathtaking
Jul 2019 • Couples
We had been on a rainforest hike and our your guide said that we were stopping here on our way back to the hotel. We did not know what to expect, he had told us that the Chinese had tried to grow tea and it had been unsuccessful so we were not sure why we were stopping. When we did I was blown away by that view!!! It was up there with sugarloaf mountain views. Well worth the stop for a photo or two.

Worth a visit

Not entirely sure about the origins of this place, but it has great views and is worth a visit on the way to Corcovado.

Superb view on Rio !
Oct 2018
Take a taxi and drive some 20' (without traffic!) to this view. It's way worth on a sunny day !

Also, instead of returning straight to Rio, you can ride on the "back way" diredctly to Corcovado.

Amazing not so well known view
Jan 2018 • Family
Rio de Janeiro is very well known for its beachs, but in fact is totally surrounded by mountains. The most famous are Corcovado, with the Christ, Pão de Açúcar « Sugar Loaf » but you should not miss the view of Vista Chinesa. You can still go up in car without paying any entrance fees. Don’t miss it!
