Free admission

With iconic landmarks like Sugar Loaf and Corcovado mountains, Rio de Janeiro has no shortage of famous lookouts, but if you’re looking for a unique view away from the masses, head to the Vista Chinesa. An oriental style pavilion perched at 380 meters on the Alto da Boa Vista, the Vista Chinesa (literally ‘the Chinese View’) is one of the most striking monuments of the Tijuca Forest, erected in 1903 to honor Rio’s Chinese immigrants.

Regarded as one of the grandest Chinese monuments in South America, the award-winning gazebo offers spectacular views over the city, spanning the coastal lagoons and mountaintops, including the Christ the Redeemer statue atop Corcovado, Ipanema and Copacabana beaches and Leblon. The easiest way to reach the Vista Chinesa is by taxi or tour bus, but adventurous types can also tackle the climb on foot or mountain bike - a steep yet scenic 6km trek that’s not for the faint hearted.

This is a super recommended experience for those who love adventure, outdoor activities, culture and nature! We are going to drive trough Estrada das Canoas, a beautiful road inside the Tijuca's Forest that has some amazing views and we, of course, are going to stop and admire one of those as we drive on board of a classic Land Rover Defender to the beginning of the Pedra Bonita trail. The trail to the top of Pedra Bonita is of low intensity and lasts around 30 minutes, during our hike I will tell you some curiosities about the Forest history and it's fauna and flora. Once at the top you will have an amazing 360° view of our mountains and beaches! I go there all the time and just can't get used to it, so be ready to be astonished by the beauty of the place! ​ After the hike we will return to the Estrada das Canoas road and visit the other two stops of this hiking tour: The Emperor's Table, the place where the royal family used to have lunch, and The Chinese View, a cabin in the Asian style with a breathtaking view to the Rodrigo de Freitas Laggon, Christ and much more!
