History   
On a visit to Auckland, New Zealand, Macau casino billionaire Stanley Ho Hung-Sun was so impressed by the Sky Tower in Auckland that he commissioned a similar one to be built in Macau. The tower was designed by New Zealand engineering firm Beca Group and Gordon Moller of Craig Craig Moller architects for Sociedade de Turismo e Diversões de Macau, SARL. Construction work of the tower started in 1998, and the tower was officially opened on December 19, 2001.

At 233 meters, the Macau Tower's tethered "skyjump" and Bungy jump by world renowned AJ Hackett from the tower's outer rim, is the highest in the world.
