For me, Macau is a place rich in entertainment and bright lights, especially with their numerous casinos in almost every corner of the street. If you’re like me who don’t gamble, then you’ll definitely enjoy shopping and dining around Senado Square, a large town square just a bus away from their gambling center. You can also drop by the Ruins of St. Paul’s Cathedral while you’re there. For the more daring travelers, head to Macau Tower and get ready to experience an adventure of a lifetime. That’s right, I’m talking about Macau’s famous “AJ Hackett Bungy Jump“!

AJ Hackett Bungy Jump

To those who aren’t familiar with it, AJ Hackett Macau Tower Bungy Jump is home to the World’s Highest Bungy because it’s about 233m / 764 ft. high! They also have other activities aside from the Bungy Jump, so make sure to check out their official website. The prices are really expensive so choose the activity you feel that you’re going to enjoy the most. As for me, it’s gotta be the Bungy Jump! But to take a leap from their platform 233m above the ground, you will have to be prepared to shell out MOP3,361 or US$420.70, which includes an exclusive T-shirt, e-Certificate, AJ Hackett International membership card, F&B discounts, tower admission ticket, and of course, the Bungy Jump! That’s the standard package. As for the full package, it is worth MOP3,988 or US$499, which includes everything in the standard package plus photos, HD video and GoPro video in USB.

To make the bungy jump safe, a specially designed bungy cord, guide cables, and recovery system was developed. They will also make lots of preparations before you can take the leap, like checking your weight, asking for your health conditions, and attaching the necessary straps and equipment to your body. We arrived at the tower around 4pm and was only able to jump when it was already 7:30pm. The line was really long because it was during peak season, so don’t forget to book in advance.

So what’s going to happen is that the jumper takes a leap from the platform high up in Macau tower and then it’s a free fall down, letting gravity take the reins. The jumper will be slowing down 30 meters from the ground before rebounding back up. Don’t worry about hitting the walls of the tower, the guide cables system makes sure you do not make contact with the tower at all.

I’m really excited to share to you my free fall bungy jump experience, and the best way for me to express it is to show you the video of my jump! This was definitely the highlight of my entire trip!

I still get so hyped up every time I watch this! The feeling of standing at the edge of the platform was mind-blowing! That was actually the scariest part, not the jump itself. Feeling the cold winter wind blowing on my face, I literally heard my heart pounding while the people assisting me started counting down. It was my first bungy jump and even though it frightened me, I’m so happy I still took the plunge. I was able to see the beautiful night view of the city while they lowered me down to the ground slowly. My knees were a little wobbly when I reached the ground but I could still pretend to walk properly. LOL! Thumbs up to the ultimate free fall experience at AJ Hackett Bungy Jump!! Oh, I heard they will also be opening a branch at Singapore soon!

  1. FYI I really read the whole article and watched the whole video. This really got me interested because I’ll be going to HK next year and will probably cross to Macau so this put me on the edge. I screeched watching you jump. Haha. This is definitely something to save up for. Hope I could save enough for this

      I hope you’ll be able to try it! I swear, it really is worth saving up for. :) I actually thought my own screech in the video was awful. LOL! Have fun in your Hong Kong trip!

  2. Wow! Bungee jumping from the Macau Tower sounds so scary. Hats off to you that you did it. Showed the video to my kids and they are amazed too.

    • Michelle Mae

      The scariest part is standing on the platform and the initial fall, but when you’re in the middle of the fall, it only feels amazing! :)

  3. I’ve been searching for things to do in Macau just yesterday coz i am planning an itinerary for our supposedly tour in January. I was Planning to celebrate our wedding anniv in Macau,then i read this at one site and it looks amazing. But Watching it here, it convinced me not to try! Haha! I can’t! I just can’t! I might die from heart attack probably, Lol! But there’s a walk right? I might consider that option than bungy jumping! :)

    • Michelle Mae

      Yes, they have a Skywalk that you can do together with a group. If Bungy Jumping scares you, try doing their Skyjump. It’s a bit similar to Bungy Jumping, but instead of free-falling, a wire cable slowly brings you down to the ground. :) Hope you have a great wedding anniversary in Macau!

  4. Macau is always known as vegas of Asia. I never know Macau houses the world’s highest bungy as well. I’m totally afraid of heights so it would take a loot of courage before I can convince myself to try this. Haha! That’s a one brave act to try that bungy jump!

    • Michelle Mae

      They have an activity called Skywalk where you walk outside and around the tower on a glass floor. You can try that one. :) I rode a lot of roller coasters when I was a kid so maybe that helped prepare for this bungy jump! :D

  5. “Leap and the net will catch you,” is an inspirational quote that has been floated around. In this case, leap and the bungee cord will stop you. I am scared of heights. After reading your post, I am hyped! I am ready! I say that because I am not in Macau. The thing that boosted my confidence is that you stop at some 30 meters. 100 feet is still a long way from the bottom and it would be scarier the closer it gets to the ground.

    Glad you did it and somehow, it proves to you there are so many things you can do.

    • Michelle Mae

      I’m really glad I did it too! I would’ve regretted it if I didn’t. :) After the stop and rebounding back up, there’s a strap on one of your knees that you can pull, which will make you sit up properly. After that, you can just enjoy the wonderful view as they bring you down slowly. :)

  6. Wow, I can’t believe you would be able to do this! That’s such a crazy thing to do. I mean Bungee jumping from the Macau Tower sounds just incredible, but you gotta to be brave! What an experience, and I love how you’re describing your experience!

  7. OMG! you’re such an amazing woman! Just like you I love adventures..extreme adventures , but I don’t know If I can do this one. The height alone of the building will kill me. I don’t know If I can still remind myself that I am still alive after I do this .Lol. Congratulations!!!

    • Michelle Mae

      Haha don’t worry! The only scary part is standing on the platform and the initial jump, after that all you will feel is excitement and the satisfaction of being able to do it! :D If you jump at night, the beautiful view while they bring you down is one of the best you’ll ever see too. :)

  8. I’m scared of heights and this one could definitely make me puke from above, haha. But the thing I love about risk-takers is that they always want to try something new even if it’s scary. I hope I could be like that, too. Maybe someday I could try it there. Who knows? ;)

    • Michelle Mae

      I hope you’ll be able to try the bungy jumping too someday! Knowing that you did something you thought you wouldn’t be able to do feels amazing! That’s how I felt when I jumped from the tower. :)

  9. Whew! That must be really intense! I never thought it’d be that expensive too, but it’s a rare opportunity so glad you went all out for it! I’ve only been on a harnessed fall once on a 5-storey tower and it was so nerve wracking, I almost didn’t want to jump off the ledge. You looked so chill and confident in the video! XD

    • Michelle Mae

      I’m glad I did it too, otherwise I would’ve regretted it. :) I was actually a wreck inside, my heart was beating really fast. My screech sounded awful too! LOL. :D

  10. I’ve long been wanted to try bunjee jumping! Your article is actually very timely for me as I am set to be in HK next month. Now, i can probably take that side trip to Macau and try this with my dad! Thanks for sharing!

  11. Before getting married and having kids, I used to be so adventurous. This is something I wouldn’t pass up then. Now though, I’ve got to rethink it. Haha. My brother has done countless bungee jumps and sky dives before and he just can’t get enough of the thrill. I’m sure you felt the same way. :)

  12. Wow! Congratulations for doing it! I don’t think I would ever do something like that. I’m afraid of heights. I might die of heart attack if I do that.

  13. Omg! Why as if you didn’t feel any second thoughts to jump hahahahaha. Super brave! I really wanted to do this when I visited Macau howetits so expensive. And I can’t imagine myself just go there and just jump. It might probably take me more minutes hahahahaha.

    • Michelle Mae

      I was actually having an inner turmoil that time. LOL! But it was something I really wanted to do so I steeled myself up. :)
