Top of the World: Macau Tower

As mentioned before, it has become a mini-activity for me when I am traveling to visit and ascend to the tallest structures of the city I am in. During my stay in Macau I made it a point to go up the Macau Tower, which, at 338 meters, is the 10th highest in the world.

The tower, completed in 2001, is located in the heart of the city, about 15 minutes taxi ride from Cotai Strip. There is a convention center/mall built beside the tower, and the entrance to the tower is through there. 

After paying the entrance fee (MOP 90/HK$90), you will be ushered to the elevators that will take you to the observation decks, at 59th and 61st floors. The observation deck has glass floors and walls, giving a spectacular, albeit vertigo-inducing, view of Macau's glittery casinos and downtown. 

If you're feeling a bit adventurous, you can walk around the outer rim of the 61st floor observatory while being in a harness. you can bungee jump from a height of 233 meters - the highest bungee jump in the world. You will earn a certificate from Guinness Book of World Records if you accomplished the feat.
