Guia Lighthouse, Macau

4.4
Witness a monumental piece of Macau's colonial history at Guia Lighthouse. The first colonial-style lighthouse on the Chinese coast, this 19th-century structure is 15 m (49 ft) tall and stands on the highest point of the eponymous hill. Though visitors cannot enter the lighthouse itself, a nearby museum narrates the history of the structure and features a small chapel next door. Enjoy the captivating views of the Macau skyline while taking yourself back to simpler times, when this lighthouse served an integral role in navigation and warned the city's residents of incoming typhoons.

    I walked from the sea Emperor. Because the top of the mountain go up the slope. Road signs, Pine Mountain fortresses and show there was. Atop a white lighthouse and next to that was a white building. The white building is the Church. And towards the sea placed large guns Sept. Lighthouses and fortresses from Vista is good, as you can see. There are Kai climbed the hard way.

    Macau major ruins gathered from remoteness, quiet in Macau, where you can see the advantages. Not hard to ride the cable car can climb by cable car ride. You can also see the op op is not attractive. Rather, it looks through the Macau city view Fort too nice. Only to see the city views, revisit your doctor.

    纜 Tuk ride just to walk, 剛 encountered Lighthouses open to put Userboxes/Time, Lighthouses are small, but 5-6 real working staff. Because Lighthouses/f staircase is small, so some staff arrangements/f of order, preface, but entered Lighthouses encountered heavy rain, because the coating cannot file on most Umbrella, not promote 頂/f Office Law overlooks Macau views. But to promote looking out of the window just the'm not wrong!

    Lucky enough to hit its open day so you can climb up to the top of the light tower (every sat and sun during July). Good panoramic view of the city! Not easily accessible by public transport tough.

    We came here without knowing the opening hours.. so I added on google. It's a nice place for workout and hike (since there are many uphills). Can't see much at night but could imagine the night view from the night house at night would be really nice (unfortunately they closes at 6pm)

    A good place to visit. Other than the lighthouse, there is a church you can pay a visit inside and other military setup like air-raid basement and canon. You can have a high level view of Macau there. If you don't want walk down from the hill top, you can take the cable car.

Where to stay in Macau

Cotai Strip in Macau offers luxury hotels, with famous names providing rooms looking out over the harbor and down into the historical center. Establishments in this area also feature onsite entertainment options and Vegas-style casinos. Look for more affordable options north of Nam Van Lake, where chain and boutique hotels provide rooms with views of the city, the harbor, and across to China proper.
