Sunday, February 21, 2016'd: Macau Tower Skywalk X

I was in Macau last January 2014 but since it was part of a package tour, it was a forgettable experience. Yeah, I did see the Ruins of St. Paul, rode the gondola at the Venetian Hotel, and have gotten lost on one of their casinos. That's just about it. Our time was so limited I didn't get to see much of Macau. Now that I'm coming back to Macau this coming April 2016, I plan to do better.

Enter Macau Tower. Having a  height of 1,109 feet, this tower dominates Macau’s skyline and offers sweeping views of the peninsula. I didn't know about this the first time but we did get a view while strolling the streets of Macau. This time, I made sure that our itinerary would include conquering this giant.

Bungee jumping has always been one of my travel bucket list since we do not have one in the Philippines (I've read we did have one in Subic but it is no longer in operation). So when I heard that there is one in Macau, I really got excited. I Googled it up and got heartbroken upon knowing the cost.

A single jump which includes Certificate, Membership Card & Exclusive T-Shirt is currently at a whopping HKD 3288! Converted to my currency, that's 20,162.35 Philippine Pesos! For a single jump, really? I just couldn't afford it, but I have to do something while I'm in that tower!

Enter SkyWalk. At 788 HKD (4,832.10 Philippine Pesos), I've accepted the fact that this is what I can only afford. Here. visitors gets the chance to do  15- to 20-minute open-air walk on 1.8-metre-wide outer perimeter circling the tower. Not bad. :)

Being a budget traveler, one should know how to experience something at a cheaper price. This is how I came to know about It's a one-stop shop for booking amazing travel experiences online or via mobile to top destinations in Asia. At the moment, the cater to the following destinations:

Hong Kong

All you have to do is to create an account, pick a travel destination, then choose your desired activity. I chose the Macau Tower Skywak X + Admission for only 792 HKD instead of HKD 923! Their price comparison is in sync with the actual price one would see on the destination's official website. Talk about big savings! Having to pay via PayPal is a plus for some who do not have a credit card. Once  payment is confirmed, you can then present either a printed or a mobile voucher for this activity at the tower itself. Based from their website, buses are frequent and the routes 9A, 18, 23, 26, 32, MT4 will take you to the Macau Tower.

Can't wait for April!
