Macau Tower, Macau

Another swap card, this time from Macau. I don't have too many postcards from there so it's nice to see some more views from there.

Macau tower, also known as Macau Sky Tower, is a tower located in the former Portuguese colony of Macau, now a Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China. The tower measures 338 m in height from ground level to the highest point. It features an observation deck with panoramic views, restaurants, theaters, shopping malls and the Skywalk X. It offers the best view of Macau and in recent years has been used for a variety of adventurous activities. The tower was created by the architecture firm of Craig Craig Moller. Besides being used for observation and entertainment, the tower is also used for telecommunications and broadcasting.

Isn't this a cute stamp?! It's from a set of two stamps issued in 2010, depicting Giant Pandas.
