“nice place for a walk”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

especially if you stay at the Tivoli Oriente, the Parque is just opposite... have a walk, mix with the crowd. if you have children, this is the place for them to run and run and run without any danger!!!

“beautiful, open, and enjoyable change of pace from the city”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

This is a newer section of Lisbon and it is lovely. If you're a claustrophobe, like me, you'll enjoy the change from close, crowded old quarters to open spaces and natural views! There is lovely walking for miles along the front, a gondola ride will give you a different perspective on the region, the big mall, metro and train station make it very convenient. You're also near to a number of attractions including the oceanarium, science pavilion, and lovely waterfront cafes. I never miss this area when in Lisbon. Super laid back and enjoyable for a whole day.

“Quite run down”
Reviewed June 2, 2013 via mobile

All along the "boardwalk" from the telecabine to the marina nacoes it just looks like the money ran out and so did the buyers , apartments empty and not completed and the usual empty units ... A real shame.

That said , it still a great place for a stroll and if you have an afternoon flight , then sure stop off there and while away a couple of hours before jumping back on the metro to the airport.

“Easy to reach on the red line metro...”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

this area makes a nice evening stroll along the river. The former Olympic village has been converted to a multi-use park with restaurants and entertainment, and there is a large shopping mall next to the Oriente metro station.

“Something for everyone!”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

Based on other Trip Advisor reviews we headed over there to see the modernistic area for ourselves. We had only a short time to visit. We are not shoppers or mall wanderers, but you have to see this mall to believe it, full of interesting stores for sure, but for us the amazement was the water feature on the roof. The roof is rounded and water runs continually down both sides. You can walk through the mall to get to the Expo area on the waterfront. There is a huge food court on the third level with lots of options. I am sure the outdoor area along the water is very busy in the summer with all the restaurants and bars open - somewhat like a beach boardwalk. You can get a great view by riding the cable cars. We rode toward the Vasco da Gama Bridge which gives you a wonderful view of the bridge and reminded us of the long bridge down in the Keys in the Florida. You can get good photo ops and the price is reasonable. Just go one way and walk back. There are various kinds of mini-gardens along the walking area and interesting pieces of sculpture. The Oceanarium is also located there. There is a small lagoon you can go kayaking on as well. The architecture is pretty amazing considering how modern it is in comparison to the rest of the buildings in Lisbon. The Oriental train station, the twin tower apartment and office buildings named after Vasco da Gama's ships and designed to look like sail boats, and the amazing Myriad Hotel which was built next to the viewing tower left from Expo 98 for me were just extraordinary to look at. Currently the viewing tower is being turned into a revolving restaurant which will be part of the hotel. This is definitely a nice area for an afternoon drink, a long walk along the water, or a day of shopping and eating.
