    Seen from almost everywhere in Macao, this new tower is the sign of the technical development in the recent years.

    For those with strong heart, the "Skywalk" in the outer rim, the tallest in the world, is quite a challenge.

    Going up is expensive, but it provides the best views in the territory.

    Macau Tower is one of the icons in Macau. This modern 338m height tall structure is an important tourist attraction with many adventurous activities. They include Mast Climb, Budgy Jump, SKy Jump, and Skywalk X. For me, I just bought a ticket and went up to the observation deck (223m height) to see the beautiful views of the Pearl River Delta, Macau bridges, Macau, and China from far. There are restaurants, cafes, convention halls, and shops inside the building.

    You can take great picture of the tower from Av Panoramica do Lago, west of Nam Van Lake.

    Observation Deck: 10am-9pm (weekdays); 9am-9pm (weekends and Public Holiday)

    Fee: MOP 120 /adult.

    Macau Sky Tower measures 338 m (1,109 ft) in height from ground level to the highest point. An observation deck with panoramic views, restaurants, theaters, shopping malls and the Skywalk X, a thrilling walking tour around the outer rim. It offers the best view of Macau and in recent years has been used for a variety of adventurous activities. At 233 meters, the Macau Tower's tethered "skyjump" and Bungy Jump by world renowned AJ Hackett [1] 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.

    Visit the Macau Tower

    At 338 meters, the Macau Tower is one of the tallest in the world. As expected, on clear days it provides commanding views of the city and out to sea. A ride up to the observation decks costs MOP$70. From there you can simply enjoy the views or part with significantly more cash and clamber around on an outdoor platform or do either the world’s highest bungy-jump or the world’s highest sky-jump.

    The 338 meter Tower, with its glass-floor observation deck, is a must-see Macau attraction. It goes without saying, the view is fabulous. Thrill-seekers can enjoy a tethered stroll outside or bungy jumping from the observation deck. Lunch and dinner are served in a 360 degree restaurant, and drinks in a 180 degree lounge.

    In the lobby at the base of the Tower, kids will want to stop at the Warner Bros. store and Toys R Us, where you can buy, among other things, Monolpoly featuring the sites of Macau.

    Climbing the Macau Tower

    View from the observation deck of Macau Tower

    One of the tallest structures in the world, the Macau Tower gives you a panoramic view of the entire Macau territory -- including the two outlying islands -- and the neighboring Chinese province of Guangdong.

    You may also try the Sky Walk (where you get to walk over a ledge that goes around the observation deck) and Sky Jump (where you will be lowered to the ground by a cord) if you are the adventurous type.

    View from the First Observation Deck, Macau Tower

    For a bird's-eye view of Macau, go to the top of the Macau Tower. At 338 meters, 10th tallest tower in the world, and much like some of the others one will see in New Zealand or Shanghai. The observation desk on the 58th and 61st level can house up to a thousand visitors, who can see most of central Macau, along with some of the outlying islands of Coloane and Taipa. Go in the late afternoon for a spectacular view of the sun setting on the ocean.

    Torre de Macau (Macau Tower)

    by ahoerner Updated Jul 6, 2005

    Macau Tower.

    Opened on December 19th 2001, Macau Tower is the tenth highest in the world, with 338 meters. It is an elegant construction offering magnificent views of Macau and much of the Pearl River delta.

    Unfortunately the weather conditions are so bad that we decided not to climb it. By the picture you can notice that we could barely see it in the midst of the fog.

    MacauTower

    At 338m above ground, Macau Tower is the 10th tallest tower in the world. Gaze down at Macau and take awe at the view from 2 observatory decks - the enclosed air-conditioned one on the 58th storey and the open air one at the 61st storey. There is a rotating restaurant on the 59th as well.

    Entry fee for 1 adult is 70 patacas (circa May 2005)

    MAST CLIMB: CLIMB TO THE TIP OF MACAU TOWER!

    by xuessium Updated May 20, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    MastClimb

    I thought it was pretty cool to be able to climb OUT of the tower and right up to its tip. Try the Mast Climb. You will be standing tall at the apex of the 10th tallest tower in the world at 338m above ground!
    (See picture, courtesy from the folks from AJ Hackett)

    The entire climb takes 2-3 hours so give yourself the allowance. Generally, unless the weather is really bad (thunder, lightning or high winds), it is all go.

    Price is 1000patacas so solo climb. Rates go down for groups.

    Macau Tower and bridge to Taipa island

    The most visible landmark in all of Macau is undoubtedly the 338 meter tall Macau Tower. It is the 10th highest freestanding tower in the world and the 8th tallest in Asia. Officially called The Macau Tower Convention & Entertainment Centre (MTCEC), it was opened on 19th December 2001 and is comprised of the communications and observation Tower, a 4 level Convention & Entertainment Centre, a 2 level underground basement, and an outdoor plaza. As with all such towers, the top is comprised of both an observation deck and revolving restaurant. There is also an outdoor observation deck at 233 meters. From the highest viewing deck it is possible to see 55km away on a clear day.

    Macau Tower

    by xiquinho Written Oct 20, 2004

    Soaring 338 metres above the city, the Macau Tower is the 10th highest freestanding tower in the world and the 8th tallest in Asia. It stands taller than Auckland's Sky Tower, Paris' Eiffel and Sydney's AMP Tower. The Macau Tower Convention & Entertainment Centre (MTCEC) fronts onto the Pearl River and the Nam Van Lake development. MTCEC is just 5 minutes from the Macau Ferry Terminal and 15 minutes away from the border crossing to Zhuhai, China and the Macau International Airport.

    Ticket stub from Macau Tower

    Macau Tower is an overpriced and somewhat unspectacular tourist trap on the southern edge of Macau. For about US$10--which is quite a bit of money in Macau--you can take the elevator to the top. Because of the location, on the far reaches of the town, you really don't have much of a view except of the casinos and south to the next island.

    At 338 meters in height, it is the 10th tallest tower in the world. It was built by Stanley Ho, one of Asia's wealthiest men, and the owner of most of the casinos in Macau. The tower was begun in 1998 and completed in 2000 for about US$130 million.
