Vista Chinesa is a monument located in Tijuca National Park in Rio de Janeiro. The monument itself is a bamboo gazebo on the ascent of Alto da Boa Vista. In the movie Rio, after Blu and Jewel managed to escape from the smugglers and Nigel, the two found themselves in the middle of the park and were searching for shelter. First, Jewel came across a tall tree and suggested they rest in it. Since he was a bird who had never lived in the jungle, Blu refused to sleep in the tall tree they came upon. Suddenly, he spotted the Vista Chinesa in distance and told her he would prefer to spend the night there, as it was "man-made." Persuaded by Blu, they decided to rest in the gazebo. Underestimated by Jewel due to his inability to fly, Blu exposed his acrobatic excellence by dragging her along with him to the upper beam of the structure, mocking her in the process. After that, they had a short discussion about flying before Jewel went to sleep. The Vista Chinesa was also briefly seen during Rio 2, in daytime, when Jewel flew by with a brazil nut on her way to The Birdhouse.
