Phuket is famous for its relaxing beachside vibe, being the place to visit to get away from the trials and tribulations life presents. However, this is not enough for thrill seekers and adrenalin junkies who need their fix of danger. Fortunately for you, Phuket?s eclectic disposition ensures you can partake in adventurous activities until your heart is content.
Jungle Bungee Jump – Kathu
If relaxing on the beach doesn?t quite hit the spot, maybe you would like to throw yourself off a crane suspended 54 metres above a lagoon! Don?t worry, you will be attached to the crane by a cord! The Jungle Bungee Jump, situated a short drive from Patong in Kathu, is set within luscious jungle vegetation overlooking a scenic lagoon. The 50m jump will fulfil all your adventurous needs in one swift descent. The Jungle Bungee Jump Company is Phuket?s most reputable, providing full insurance.
Kannaree House ? Chalong
If you like your adventure activities under one roof, a visit to the Kannaree House complex in Chalong is a must. Here you will find a great selection of Go-Carting, ATV riding and the Phuket Shooting Range. The newly built Go Cart track is ideal for people of all ages, with numerous vehicle types that allow you to traverse the purpose-built course with your child sat next to you.
