There is a urban forest in Rio de Janeiro called "Floresta da Tijuca". It is a beautiful green area in the hills of Rio. From Vista Chinesa you can see a beautiful view of the sea, the laggon and different mountains. It is worth a visit.

After crossing an area of Atlatic forest, you reach a calm (and non paid) place where you are able to see the Corcovado, Rodrigo de Freita's Lagoon and Ipanema beach. Rio is nicer from far.

We went there with a guided tour in Tijuca National Park. The view was awesome. Our tour guide mentioned that a politician built this to honor the large number of Chinese immigrants and their value to the city's history. The best spor of the tour in the Park!

Little far to get there, but worth it. Lots of green everywhere. This is one of the only sites in Rio that one can picture both Sugar Loaf and Corcovado (Christ) togheter.

The view is awesome from up here. Our tour guide mentioned that a politician built this to honor the large number of Chinese immigrants and their value to the city's history. It's amazing how many beautiful views this city has.

Great view of the south side of Rio. Pretty calm and quiet compared to other vistas. My group got to the area in open air jeep tour ride. Gave a good sense of the Tijuca forest surrounding the view and guides gave a good explanation of the meaning behind the memorial area.

Either by running, biking or sightseeing this is one of the best views of the Rio Zona Sul. Very good place to stop and admire Rio de Janeiro sights before stopping at the Emperor's Table.

Vista Chinesa is another lovely point of interest to visit during your Rio trip. It is in the Parque Nacional da Tijuca and could be part of your itinerary for a day trip to the Parque. Great vistas with stunning photo opportunities on a lovely clear day. Highly recommended.

We went by car, but we were impressed by all the alternative ways people go up this mountain - motorbikes, normal bikes, in-lines... The view is amazing and you also see the Cristo Redentor. It is a place to take pictures but the journey up is in itself a very impressive one.

Bring your camera... you'll not regret it... it's an amazing scenic view of Rio de Janeiro's beachs.
