Cable Guia (Guia Hill Cable Car): Parque Municipal da Colina da Guia to Jardim da Flora by Cable Car

Cable Guia Parque Municipal da Colina da Guia Jardim da Flora 002

Once done with exploring Guia Hill, I headed back to Parque Municipal da Colina da Guia cable car station to catch the Cable Guia back down to Jardim da Flora. The Cable Guia or Guia Hill Cable Car is probably one of Macau’s lesser known tourist attractions. Leading up to Guia Hill for Guia Military Tunnels and Guia Fortress, it is an efficient mode of transport to bring you up, minimising the climbing time needed, though it is slightly further out from the main attractions at Guia Hill.

Thanks Cable Guia. Probably the cheapest and least crowded cable car system I’ve ever tried.

Here, I got the Transmac Bus Service 25B to MGM Cotai to continue my next exploration at Wynn Palace.

Overall, a pretty cheap and pleasant ride on such a quaint cable car system, not something that one would expect in bustling Macau.
