Visit the Macau Tower for a variety of experiences.
The bungee jump at the Macau Tower is the main attraction for the tower. This bungee jump is in the Guinness Book Of World Records as the tallest bungee jump in the world. At 223m above the ground this jump is the adventure sport to do at the tower for all the adrenaline junkies. This bungee jump is something that would remind you that you are still alive in the mundane days of your routine. It is supposed to inspire you to live. This bungee jump has been around since 1988 and since then, about four million people has jumped off from here. This bungee jump also offers an experience like no other, Night Bungee. This lets you bungee jump from the tower during night. No other bungee jump allows this. The bungee is generally very bustling and hence it is recommended to book the appointment in advance to avoid disappointment upon reaching the tower.
The skywalk is a sport to do for the entire family. At 233m, this skywalk is a thrilling family sport. This skywalk encircles the tower at the staggering height and the view from the skywalk below is unnerving. The most thrilling part of the skywalk is the walkway which is only 1.8m wide that too without any handrails what so ever. This Goosebumps inducing attraction is pushing your adrenaline level to the limits.
The Skyjump is something that looks straight out of Hollywood movies. Truth be told, it may have even been used in the Hollywood movie that you are thinking about. This skyjump is a controlled decent experience. Attached to a wire cable and let go into the free sky, this attraction is not for the fainthearted. The 17 seconds long skyjump is operated from the same platform as the bungee jump and gets your heart racing in a jiffy. The skyjump ends at the ground floor of the plaza making a decent of 223m in just 17 seconds.
The tower climb is the attraction that takes you to the very top of the tower at 338m, on to the mast. This is the place with the best view of the city. The last hundred meters of the climb are on a vertical ladder in the open air which is a thrill in itself. This is one of the must do attraction for the adventure seekers out there.
360 Degree Cafe
The 360 degree cafe is the best place in the town for a meal. This cafe not only gives an amazing food experience but the view while you eat your food is just unbeatable. This cafe is worthy of a meal and you should grab something while you are here.
How to Get Tickets?
Tickets are available online and that is the recommended way to buy them. They are also available at the tower but get sold out pretty quickly.
How To Get Around?
Getting around is fairly easy. A taxi or the public transport is the way to go around the city. A taxi is what we recommend.
What Should I Wear?
Casual and comfortable clothes are the way to go. Avoid anything fancy if you are looking forward to any of the adventure activities. Shoes are a must though.
