Bungee Jumping

   
 

Bungee jumping is a new sport in Thailand and has not quite gained the popularity of other adventure sports. The thrill of a bungee jump is definitely incomparable to anything on the planet. Just thinking about it is madness! But you only live once and if hanging upside down on a cord is your thing then go for it.

So far, there are only 4 well-known bungee jumping locations in Thailand. The operators here have been conducting bungee jumping for some time and are therefore quite experienced in conducting this activity. Without a doubt this is a very dangerous sport and should not be endeavoured lightly.

How to get started?

The best way to start off your bungee jumping experience is to visit the websites of the various operators available. Do check that the service operator you choose does include insurance and ask for emergency procedures ie; if there are nurses and doctors or paramedics on site. Inquiring on emergency procedures such as the location of the closest hospital is definitely a good idea. Also consult a reliable travel agent for recommendations on a reliable service operator.
