Worlds Highest Bungee - Macau

I've never gone bungee jumping  but it's definitely one of the few things I'd wanna try at least before I turn 30.

It wasn't until we booked a flight  to Macau to chill,  that we thought of doing the bungee,  since the Highest Bungee is located there.

I felt excited and  nervous at the same time.  I   became sleepless for some nights just thinking about it and the more imagine myself jumping from that high tower, the more I became anxious. Few weeks before, I even  thought about canceling the booking for bungee. But heck!  I managed to get my guts back.

 After partying in Hong Kong,  took the ferry to Macau and scheduled for 4pm jump the next day.


Macau tower measures 388 m ( 1,109 ft) in height from ground level to the highest point.

On the way to the tower my heart started beating fast, my knees started trembling but mind over matter worked.

  After the registration and paying  non refundable $$$, took to the elevator to 61st floor.  The jump off point is 233 meters high ( 764 ft)  S**  here we go !!

It was overwhelming!!!

After registration, the crew assisted us to wear the harness and was weighed a couple of times. We were then asked to sit down and wait for our turn. Some people were already jumping in the platform and i just wanted to be next so i can get it over and done with! I was just already too excited and scared!
 One crew handed  us can of beers. lol.   That helped a bit.


We  were then asked to go to the platform for our turn.  Thanks to the background music being played, it made me feel upbeat. While waiting and chatting with the crew, they kept joking that it  may be the last time they'll see me.  Honestly, you will not think about dying, you're  just anxious about the process.

Then the guy before me did his jump. Whew! He screamed really good.  haha

 I was asked now to sit down so they can get me ready. I remember asking the crew, who's harnessing me up and how many times he has done it.  He said about 100.  Phew!  at least he knows what he's doing and I'm safe. :-)


My turn!!

The crew asked me to move forward to the ledge and I was still joking with them. Laughing.

 Everything just sinked in my mind when they attached the rope to the harness on my feet. It felt heavy and I felt being pulled down.  That's when I started getting really scared.

My smile faded and my knees started trembling.  The crew asked me to waive here and there for the camera but my mind just totally blacked out of what's happening.  Darn what did I get myself into??! Clearly there's no turning back with the non-refundable $$$ and my pride commitment.  The crew told me not to think too much of the jump and think of something else and so I did. I was ready! Pfffffffff!!!


The crew started counting and I was about to jump then was stopped because their radio was not on. Pfff!

Finally the real counting began and  without hesitation I just let myself fall. It was the scariest thing I have  ever felt in my life. I screamed on the  top of my lungs as gravity pulled me down as soon as I jumped. The 6 seconds free fall  felt like forever!!! I was expecting a bit of a rush and I'm down there but  it was like falling in slow motion.

As the rope pulled me back  for the rebound, I knew that's the end of the jump. I just started laughing and shouting because I couldn't  believe I did  something like this shit. The excitement, sleepless nights, anxiety and adrenaline rush..  ahhh  it was an overwhelming, indescribable  amazing  feeling!

At the end of the jump I was left upside down. I had difficulty releasing the strap to put me upright  because I didn't have much energy left but finally I did.


 This really scared the shit out of me!  My knees were still trembling  when I was on the ground.  I had to do go up again to the tower to get my stuffs and meet with others. We were all feeling great  as we chatted about our experience.

After the jump all I wanted to do was go to a bar and drink to celebrate my guts!!

 Headed to the pool  after, had  champagne  and went to a bar   to party then  Casino.

I'd say  just give it a try!
