Why Phuket Can Provide A More Exhilarating Vacation Than You Would Imagine

March 01, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 361

When you think of Phuket, you most likely think of the luscious beaches that are perfect for relaxation, the stunning beauty of the scenery and the tranquil atmosphere. This would be perfectly understandable given the usual portrayal of the region in tourist brochures, but have you ever considered the possibility of a world-class extreme sports vacation in Phuket? There are so many activities on offer in this fantastic area of Thailand to satisfy the biggest adrenaline junkies, with ATV adventures, bungee jumping, cave exploration, and many other water sports.

When it comes to driving ATVs there are two contrasting options available. You can either choose to take one into the more remote areas of Phuket to enjoy a relaxing nature trail with a difference, or you can instead opt to release some inner rage and show your competitive side with a race at one of the specially designed circuits. Either way you are bound to agree that these machines are a fantastic device for enjoying an afternoon.

Alternatively, there are two great bungee jumping opportunities in Phuket. If you are looking for the most scenic jump you should try Jungle Bungee at Kathu, where jumpers can hurl themselves past a gorgeous jungle landscape above a lagoon. This isn't to say that World Bungee has unattractive views, not with its proximity to the beach at Patong. What makes this jump especially appealing is that it claims to be the highest in the whole of Southern Thailand at a massive 60 m.

If you are visiting Phuket and are looking to explore the stunning scenery but would also like the chance to enjoy some water sports, why not take out a sea canoe and go cave exploring! These extraordinary formations are only accessible in this manner and are a great way to get up close with local nature, making them an ideal activity that you will not find the like of anywhere else. Exploring can be done as part of a group to be sure of locations and tides, but if you feel confident there is nothing to stop you exploring on your own for added serenity.

Other water sports on offer include free diving, where guests can enjoy the Phuket's enticing waters and marine wildlife, kite surfing - a more extreme of surfing that uses the wind to create a faster and more exhilarating ride - and wake boarding, a form a water-skiing where riders use the boats wake to perform tricks. With all these exciting prospects on offer you could well find yourself spending many afternoons on the ocean.

This is just a taste of what is on offer in Phuket. If this has your adrenaline flowing with just the mere mention of the activities on offer then you should take a like at some of the photos and videos available around the net, if they do not have you reaching for your credit card to book yourself a Phuket extreme sports vacation than nothing will. Either way, one thing that cannot be denied is that Phuket is a region full of surprises.

If you need accommodation near the Kata Beach in Phuket, visit Kata Resort Phuket.
