Those who are adventurous enough to book a vacation to Thailand will be in for real treat if they make it Kathu. While all areas of The Land of Smiles are filled with fun and adventure, Kathu is a mecca for those looking to get an adrenaline boost. From scuba diving to jungle trekking to ziplining and more, there are a plethora of activities to keep you busy. Since there is so much to do, we have compiled a list of the top five adventure activities to help make your planning easier.

Dive Deep while Scuba Diving

Whether you’ve never been diving, or you are a master, you’ll love the waters around Kathu. The scuba diving in this area is some of the best in the world and you can’t afford to miss out. You can get your certification while you are in town, if you have enough time. Those who only have a day or two can still experience the adventure by getting some snorkeling in. Many of the good hotels in Kathu can help you organize either a scuba or snorkeling adventure.

Explore while Jungle Trekking

The flora of the Kathu area is just as beautiful as the water surrounding it. There is a variety of wildlife for you to spot while walking through the tropical canopy of the jungle. It is a possibility to ride an elephant while trekking if you want to feel even closer to nature. No matter which way you choose to make your way though, make sure you bring your camera to capture this once-in-a-lifetime experience.

After such a physical experience, you may find yourself a bit hungry. You should consider taking a food tour in nearby Phuket to sate your appetite and have yourself a culinary adventure.

Fly Through the Air while Ziplining

When you take your first step off the platform, dozens of feet in the air, don’t be surprised if you fall in love with this extreme sport. The wind will be swishing past your body as you are zooming by all the flora. Try not to scream too loud or you’ll scare off all the various animals, birds, and bugs who call the jungle home. If you have so much fun that you never want to go home, don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Fall to the Earth while Bungee Jumping

If you are looking for the ultimate challenge and adventure, jump off a high off platform and swan dive towards the ground. Feel your speed rapidly increase and your heartbeat jump the closer you get. At the last second you’ll feel the pull from the bungee attached to your feet which will save you from making personal friends with the blue lagoon below. We won’t blame you if you want to go again and again.

Smell the Sweat while Muay Thai Boxing

If you’ve ever wanted to see two highly trained and experienced fighters battle it out for dominance, head over to a Muay Thai boxing match. Ask a few of the locals for the best place to go, since they always know where the good ones are. If you are up for a challenge, you can even get some Muay Thai training sessions.
