The tower is a shining complex which houses various shops, restaurants and even a movie theater. Visitors without a fear of heights can rapidly ascend the high-speed, glass-fronted lifts to the observation deck on the 58th floor. Views from the 735 foot (224 meter) perch can stretch for 33 miles (53.1 kilometers) with neighboring Hong Kong visible on the clearest of days, and glass-bottomed panels provide visitors with the illusion of walking on thin air. For the ultra-adventurous, head three stories higher to the 61st floor to take part in either the SkyWalk X or AJ Hackett SkyJump, the same death-defying promontory from which New Zealand daredevil AJ Hackett once set the record for world’s tallest bungy jump.
Macau is a formerly Portuguese outpost just minutes away from the Chinese border. With this location, it is now most influenced by the changes in the modern Chinese economy and culture. This tour explains the past, present and future of Macau. We spent a few minutes at a casino in the old part of town; if you want to see the spectacular Vegas-style Cotai Strip, plan on leaving the tour at the end and making your way back to Shanghai on your own -- easily done with complementary casino transport to and from the jet-ferry station.
Great day - all worked well. We were a bit concerned about our passports - but we were looked after by the operator very well. No problkems.
Very informative trip. The places we visited were interesting and quite unique from Hong Kong. Our guide Cisco was very knowledgeable about Macau. I loved his sense of humour and he was great in keeping the group on time. Overall the trip was well organised and as described.
