During my recent stay in Hong Kong, I decided to spend a full day in the former Portuguese province of Macau. Macau is mainly known for its blend between Portuguese and Chinese culture, as well as the gambling industry on the island. Casinos such as The Venetian, Wynn and Casino Lisboa attract millions of tourists annually, but gambling was not the reason I decided to visit Macau. What had piqued my interest was the Macau Tower and the extreme adventure tour company AJ Hackett.
Soaring 338 metres above ground, the Macau Tower is the highest building in Macau. The tower houses everything from restaurants and shops to theaters and an observation deck. More interestingly, it also houses the world’s highest commercial bungy jump, the highest tethered skyjump in the world, and a skywalk on the ledge of the tower.
