Macau Tower Bungy / SkyWalk / Mast Climb / SkyJump

Coasterz 'n' Canyonz Blog Day 20

Only one thing left for it - finish on a high! Not too sure what the time is - left New Zealand yesterday afternoon, gained 5 hours, flew for 11, arrived before midnight in Kuala Lumpar, had 4 hours sleep, flew to Macau at 6am this morning, arrived Macau Tower just before lunch. In case you are wondering - all that New Zealand stuff was training for today - the WORLDS HIGHEST BUNGY - 233m / 764 ft off the Macau Tower. As with the start of the trip, the weather on the last day was not dissimilar to the first - cloudy, windy and limited visibility, much like a typical British summer's day!

Image Description 

The Macau Tower currently offers three activities, a Bungy, Sky Walk and Sky Jump (similar to Auckland Tower). Here, someone is descending Sky Jump style.

In actual fact, the limited view was a blessing in disguise - we're sure the lead up to the jump would be more terrifying with good visibility. Having said that, the jump is the same whatever the weather.

Adrian calls it a day, but Ian's just getting going. Having completed all other Sky jumps in the world, he needs Macau to complete the set. We watch this person descend, then it's Ian's turn.

And as if that wasn't enough - time for a Sky Walk.

Macau SkyWalk

So, 20 days of extreme activity comes to an end. We would like to thank everyone for their kind words of support and encouragement along the way and hope you enjoyed the blog as much as we did writing it.

Until the next trip...........
