For Runners! It is the best running path in Macau.

I suggest Guya Peak for running. Nice panorama for about 4 circle kilometers and then you can hike up to the fortress. You can also play badminton there!

Lovely for a wander and enjoy the views. We were lucky nought to see local men with their birds (in rattan cages) and the melodic sound made this a memorable experience!

The easiest way to access the Guia fortress is by a cable car (very cheap, around half a dollar). It is on a hill in a middle of a big park, right in the center. The Guia fortress along with the lighthouse is the symbol of Macau military, maritime and missionary past. They were all built by the Portuguese when... More

Part of the heritage centre of Macau and well worth adding to the visit. All in excellent condition and the worth well worth the visit. There is a running track just below the fort used by locals and the number of mature runners would put us the shame in the UK...No real obesity problems here. Take the cable car either... More

A lot of the appeal for me was the walk to get up to the fortress. I walked from the Mandarin Oriental and enjoyed the peaceful climb up, after which one is rewarded with great views of Macau. The lighthouse itself is a bit underwhelming but as part of the larger context of the fortress it's interesting enough to warrant... More

I really enjoyed the trip to Guia fortress and would recommend to anyone going to Macau, it has excellent views of Macau and has a number of excellent exhibits showcasing the colonial history. Enjoy the cable car to the top (less than 1 usd) although it is only a short ride. The world war II tunnels are also really worth... More

If you are looking for some peace and fresh air out of the beautiful casino.... This place is a good place for a walk in the morning and afternoon. The church situated on top of Guia Hill is quiet and peaceful Next to it is a lighthouse

If you enter this site from the main park/gondola entry it is most ideal in receiving a thorough experience of walking to the top. In skipping the gondola you pass by an exotic bird display, the parks winding paths or stairs (optional paths to the same location), the city's most popular outdoor track/jogging route, and a nice series of stone...
