    Macau - from the Macau Sky Tower

    Macau Sky Tower is a telecommunication tower. It is 338m high and the observation deck is at 233m. The tower is known for its outdoor Skywalk - a walking tour around the outer rim. It is also the home of one of A J Hackett's bungee jump sites - the highest in the world. The observation deck also features areas of glass floor.

    The Macau Sky Tower has been featured in the reality television program 'The Amazing Race'. It is one of the members of the World Federation of Great Towers.

    I have a totally illogical fear of towers but it is worth the trip up - the view is spectacular. Maybe you'll have more luck with the glass floor - I couldn't bring myself to walk on it! I did see someone bungee past the window!

    The bus took us directly to the entrance so I didn't get a close up photo of the tower - the close up photo is courtesy of Wikipedia.

    one of the ten tallest towers in the world! At 233 meters, the Macau Tower's tethered "skyjump" and Bungy Jump by world renowned AJ Hackett from the tower's outer rim is the highest in the world. Soar to a breathtaking 223m above ground and marvel at the panorama from the observation decks. Then catch your breath over a quiet cup of coffee or while savoring the revolving restaurant's sumptuous buffet. And if you dare, take yourself to the edge on AJ Hackett's Skywalk.

    The tower is one of the members of the World Federation of Great Tower of which CN Tower in Toronto Canada and Stratosphere Tower in Las Vegas of which I've visited are also members. Besides it being used for observation and entertainment, the tower is also used for telecommunications and broadcasting.

    Glass fronted lifts:you won't miss a moment of the spectacular view as you fly to the top in these high speed lifts.
