Macao Tower VS. The Stratosphere

Both are located in centres of gambling and entertainment but between the two, which tower looks better? Macao Tower or Stratosphere in Las Vegas?

Macao Tower


Stratosphere

Macau Tower easily wins. Its a twin to Auckland New Zealands Sky Tower.

I might be biased though because I dont think anything has ever been built in Las Vegas that is worthwhile.

I was in Vegas a few days back and there are alot of impressive projects happening. It's much better compared to when I was there last year. The most amazing construction I've seen is the City Centre which is right close to the NY NY Hotel Casino

Stratosphere is a cleaner design with a graceful curve all the way up.



Plus it has rides on top.

Macau Tower. But I'm impressed with the fact that they have rides on top of the Stratosphere

Doesn't Macau Tower have some sort of a thrill experience on top where you
put on a harness and walk around the edge, or something like that? Thought
I saw a picture of that some where.

I like the spire on top of Macau tower.

There were a couple of plans to make the Stratosphere over 500 meters tall,
but they never did it. That would have looked cool.
