Phuket Tourist Information Guide
Only the truly adventurous opt for bungee jumping in Phuket, and it’s available for anyone who wants to try! There are only a couple of bungee (also spelled bungy) cord jumping locations in Phuket, as lately the craze has fallen off a bit (so to speak). There are a few different bungee jumping options for you when you’re ready to take the plunge. One is the typical solo bungee jump off the top of a crane. One person takes a dive from a crane. The highest jump available in Phuket is at “Jungle Bungy Jump” at 50 meters high (164 feet). That should be high enough to give most of you a thrill. I’ll keep my feet on the ground, thanks. You might choose a tandem option, just like the solo jump – both of you jumping off the top of the crane for a long fall. Bungee cords can hold well over 200 kilograms (441 lbs.) in weight, so you need not worry about them snapping. Usually, right? There have been accidents of course. We recommend, when you choose a company for bungee jumping in Phuket, to find out about insurance, and Google accidents in Phuket to see what you can find out. No sense risking your life any more than necessary! Water touch bungee – is an option at some bungee companies if jumping over a pond. They dip you in the pond after the jump. Catapult bungee jumping is sort of a reverse bungee jump, where you are launched like a rocket from the elastic bungee cords up toward the crane. This option is a little easier to take because you don’t have to make yourself jump off the crane platform. You can have video or photos made of your bungee jump in Phuket for an extra fee. Bungee operations are usually open from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm.
