Reaching a neck-pinching height of 1,109 feet (338 meters), Macau Tower dominates Macau’s skyline and offers sweeping views of the peninsula for over one million visitors per year. Visitors without a fear of heights can rapidly ascend the high-speed, glass-fronted elevator to the tower observation decks on the 58th and 61st floors.
Inspired by the Sky Tower in Auckland, Macau Tower ranks among Macau’s most popular attractions, with plenty of ways to experience it depending on the thrill level you’re looking for. Options range from a basic admission ticket to the outdoor observation deck for 360-degree views of Macau and the Pearl River Delta to more adrenaline-fueled activities like one of the world’s highest commercial bungy jumps or a more controlled Skyjump or outdoor Skywalk. If you fancy more of a challenge, you can even scale the side of the building to its highest point with the help of safety cables, ladders, and guides.
