If you’re planning to visit Macau, whether for a one-day itinerary or a short weekend trip, one tourist spot you shouldn’t miss is Macau Tower or Torre de Macau. It’s the 10th tallest sightseeing tower in the world, standing at 338 metres or around 1,108 feet. If you can’t picture how high that is, imagine this: it’s taller than the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
Convinced? Here’s what you can do during your visit to Macau Tower!
Have a Bird's Eye View of the City
Not afraid of heights? Take the glass-fronted elevator and soar up in as short as 60 seconds to Macau Tower’s observation deck. Experience walking on the glass floor windows and enjoy unobstructed views of the city with your friends and loved ones. It’s also a great spot to watch the sunset. What’s more, you can try sitting down by the edge to challenge how brave you are!
The deck is open daily from 10 AM to 7 PM (weekdays) and 11 AM to 8 PM (weekends and public holidays). Tickets range from MOP115 (seniors 65 and above, children aged 3-11) to MOP195 (adult). Infants and toddlers up to two years old are free of charge. Each admission ticket gives you access to Level 58 Observation Lounge and Level 61 Adventure Deck.
Be a Daredevil and Try Bungee Jumping
Is the skywalk not enough? You might want to take a leap of faith with Macau Tower’s bungee jump! It’s the ultimate attraction for thrill seekers as you’ll feel the adrenaline rush as you drop down from the top.
If you’re starting to feel scared now, don’t be! This attraction is operated by AJ Hackett whose founder (Alan John Hackett) made a Guinness World Record in 2007 at this same attraction for the highest commercial bungee jump in the world.
Have a Unique Dining Experience
Macau Tower is home to the city’s only revolving restaurant, the 360° Café. If you want to elevate your dining experience (literally), head to the 60th floor to enjoy their lunch, high tea, and dinner buffet selections while basking in panoramic views. The restaurant rotates fully every one-and-a-half hour to give you different points of view worth posting on your socials!
Other dining establishments you can visit are Tromba Rija (ground floor) that highlights Portuguese cuisine, Lua Azul (third floor) that offers gourmet Cantonese cuisine, Café on 4 (fourth floor) that serves popular Japanese brand Mikado Coffee while offering harbour views of Taipa and Hengqin, and French-style coffee shop and deli Patisserie (lower ground floor) that offers European quality breads, pastries, desserts, and more.
Go Shopping for Souvenirs
End your visit to Macau Tower by buying yourself and your loved ones some souvenirs.
Head over to the ground floor and find Happy Corner, a social enterprise of Fuhong Society of Macau, to buy handicrafts made by people with disabilities (PWDs). The proceeds will go to the development of PWD-related services, so you’re also helping for a charitable cause! You can also visit Macau Creations at Level T1 for cultural creations made by local artists and designers.
For those with kids in tow, you can take them to Toys “R” Us on the second floor. The toy wonderland spans around 15,000 square feet, giving them a range of choices from learning aids to games and electronics.
If you want to take home luxury items, premium brand and fashion store ISA houses international brands such as Armani, Cartier, Fendi, Gucci, and Prada. Whether it’s a pair of shoes or a piece of jewellery, they have an experienced merchandising team waiting to assist you.
