  • Miradouro da Taipa Grande (Taipa Viewing Platform) was opened in 2014 providing a large scale and elevated observation deck on the mountainside just east of Taipa Village. From here visitors are afforded excellent views of the village as well as the mega hotel and casinos that have been built along the Cotai Strip over the past decade. The Viewing Platform is open 24 hours a day and can be reached by way of a short but steep walk up the mountainside from Estrada Gov. Nobre de Carvalho where you find the original trailhead for the Taipa Grande Trail. Alternatively, you can simply use the free Inclined Elevator just a few metres away. The lift is open from 6am to 8pm daily. This is a great spot for panoramic views of both Taipa and Cotai. And these views continue to improve year by year as the surrounding area is more comprehensively developed. You can take good landscape photos from this location throughout the day, particularly when sky conditions are favourable. There is also open area for children to play, nice landscaping and manicured plants as well as a curved seated area that is shaded, allowing you to get out of the sun on hot and bright days. From the Viewing Platform, you can also begin the Taipa Grande Trail, a circular 4km loop trail that passes through the Taipa Grande National Park and eventually returns to this location. In the end, the Taipa Viewing Platform has become a quality place to visit near the village. It is one of those places still not covered by the MGTO and most other tourist material covering Macau but really should be.
  • This is a great place where has a whole Taipa landscape at an attitude about 100 meters. It is also a perfect place for physical training and relaxing.
