And here you thought towers were for satellite transmission, with perhaps an observation deck and restaurant thrown in. At Macau Tower, you can certainly visit an outdoor observation deck and indoor lounge (with partial glass flooring) at the equivalent of about 61 stories high, as well as dine at the revolving 360 Cafe with its international buffet spread. But you can also get your adrenalin kick by walking around the observation deck’s outside ramparts with the safety of harnesses and ropes. I tried this one (called the Sky Walk), and it really is kinda weird being on the outside of a structure that tall. On clear days, you have fantastic views over Macau and neighboring mainland China.
What I did not do is bungy jump 764 ft (233m), listed in the Guiness World Records as the “highest commercial bungy jump,” or spend two hours climbing the mast. You’d have to pay me to do that, but if you’re game, you’ll pay MOP$3,288 for the jump and MOP$1,888 for the tower climb.
