Macau Tower, also known as Macau Sky Tower, is a tower located in the former Portuguese colony of Macau, now a Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China. The tower measures 338 m (1,109 ft) in height from ground level to the highest point. It has an observation deck with panoramic views, restaurants, theaters, shopping malls and offers the Skywalk X – a thrilling walking tour around the outer rim.  In recent years, it has been used for a variety of adventurous activities.

At 233 meters, the Macau Tower’s tethered “skyjump” and Bungee jump by world renowned AJ Hackett from the tower’s outer rim, is the highest in the world. The tower was created by the architecture firm of Craig Craig Moller.

Is it safe?
