The Vista Chinesa (Chinese Belvedere) is one of the belvederes of Rio de Janeiro, at the topmost of one of the roads that connect the Jardim Botânico area to the Parque Nacional & Floresta da Tijuca, known as the Estrada da Vista Chinesa.
Estrada da Vista Chinesa skirts the Mesa do Imperador viewpoint and at the Morro da Vista Chinesa (380m/1247ft) runs into Estrada Dona Castorina. From the top of the hill there are views of the Municipal Park, the botanical garden and a long stretch of the south coast.

Truely one of the most beautiful sights I have seen

Probably the best overall view of Rio one can get. Off the beaten track (caution is advised!), reachable by own vehicle only

Great view but make sure to come when skies are clear. Went In the evening and it was a bit hazy and hard to get the camera to focus or see as much we would of liked. Worth the long drive as no busses travel there.

This was a beautiful view. #Rio #2018

I'd say it is, after Corcovado and the Sugar Loaf, the best view you can get in Rio without having to hike up a mountain. Great final stop if you are on a good bike too (and don't care about cycling uphills, of course). One way or another, definitely worth the visit

There are some gorgeous trails and viewpoints all along the road and this is one of them. Take about half a day to go around all of them, you can spend more time if you want to do the many trails available. The forest area and greenery are worth visiting and the security staff at the gates are very helpful. Keep some water with you as it can get hot and humid in the trail areas depending on when you go. It is also great for biking if you are up for it. There are no rentals available at the spot, so you will have to arrange for these beforehand elsewhere.

Really nice view, with various ways to go up in the mountain.

From this point of view we can view the whole beauty of RJ.

This place is really cool. Unfortunately the day my husband and I were there it was so cloudy it was like being in the fog. On a clear day I understand you can see forever. We went on a Jeep tour up through the rainforest which was a total blast and highly recommended.

Beautiful views across the city. It's a must stop for photos!
