Standing at 764 ft. high, the Macao Tower Bungy Jump happens to be in the Guinness Book of World Records as the Highest Commercial Bungee Jump in the world.

Here, jumpers will be able to leap off a platform 233m above the ground and experience the most epic free fall ever, for five long seconds, before slowing down just 30m above the ground. The system will also allow jumpers to rebound a couple times before landing on a special airbag.

In case you’re worried, the special guide cables used will ensure jumpers don’t come in contact with the tower after they jump. These special cables are also built to withstand almost all weather conditions, making night bungy jumps during winter and summer possible too!

 

2. Macao Food Festival

After all the excitement and festivities, it’s important to feed your stomachs too, and as Malaysians, that’s often the most important activity of the day!

What better place to do that than at the Macao Food Festival where you can taste the delicious local cuisine and experience all that Macao has to offer in one place! From fresh seafood and grilled delicacies to baked goods and ice-cold desserts among other Macanese cuisines, you can get it all here!

This year, the festival will be separated into “streets”, with each street representing a particular cuisine, making it much easier for you to find your way around.

For all you Malaysian daredevils out there, here’s something that might interest you – an activity that even the crew of the place deem extremely scary.

Climb up a 100m vertical ladder, stand at 1109 ft. above the ground on the Macao Tower, and touch the sky. Climbers can also expect a 360-degree breathtaking view of Macao from the top!

Definitely not for the faint of heart, this activity will require climbers to be in moderate shape as it will require a lot of physical strength. However, at the end of it, climbers can look forward to the vast open space of the Macao sky and get the view of a lifetime.

Jump off the same platform as the bungee – 233m above the ground – in standing position, but instead of free falling, the Sky Jump gives jumpers a controlled descend. You can also expect a very smooth landing at the end, where you land on your feet.

Ever stood hundreds of feet above the ground behind glass windows and wondered what it’d be like to be on the other side? Well, wonder no more!

At the Macao Tower Skywalk, curious individuals can take a stroll around the perimeter of the tower, 233m above ground, on a walkway measuring just 1.8m wide. Talk about a walk to remember.

Get a 360-degree view of beautiful Macao and take some insanely sick Instagram-worthy photos here too!
