Photographer's Note

On my fourth day in Hong Kong, I decided to visit Macau.

Macau is 65 km west from Hong Kong, one hour-trip with a speed ferry. Macau was the first European enclave in Asia. It was Portuguese until China resumed sovereignity over it in 1999.

This photo was taken at the 61st floor of Macau Tower.

The Tower is 338 meters high, the 10th tallest free-standing structure in the world. It stands on the narrow isthmus of land southeast of Avenida da Republica.

You can experiment a very thrilling walk around the main outer rim of the tower, 233 meters above ground. Safety is guaranteed by a world-first overhead rail system. Next time, I will do it !

And here is the website of Macau Tower
