Macau Tower: Staring Down the World’s Highest Bungy Jump

Macau Tower offers the best views of the city and the world’s highest bungy jump. The less adventurous among us (ahem, me) can test our courage as we walk along the glass floor at the observation deck more than 700-feet in the air. From the tour, you can admire the pastel colored buildings and even see the under-construction Hong Kong–Zhuhai–Macau Bridge that will be the world’s longest at 31 miles! The tower also offers dining, shopping, and entertainment.

Three Perfect Days in Hong Kong & Macau

Hong Kong is a city that continues to reinvent itself. Literally. What they say about weather — if you don’t like the weather, wait a minute — applies to the Hong Kong skyline, and even more so to its harbor. With 7.1 million inhabitants and 55 million visitors per year, Hong Kong is busting at the seams. You’d think there’s nowhere to go but up, but you’d be wrong. There’s always out. Out into the water, that is. It’s called “reclaiming land,” which implies that it is the oceans that are imposing on Hong Kong, not the people.

10 Things You Must Do in Macau

Without stepping foot in a casino, there is plenty to entertain visitors of all ages. See for yourself why Macau receives 30 million visitors a year. It’s so much more than the Vegas of the East!

The Cobblestone Streets of Macau, China

Long billed as a gambling destination, I was surprised to find that Macau is a city rich with European history, having been occupied by the Portuguese for 500 years. One minute you’re in a multi-billion dollar entertainment complex like Sands and the next you’re walking down narrow cobblestone streets in search of hot street food. To call Macau diverse is an understatement.
