For our honeymoon, my wife and I chose Thailand for all the beauty, serenity, excitement and exhilarating experiences it has to offer. We planned our two week vacation together, listing all the exciting things we wanted to experience in Thailand and one of our most favorite was Paragliding in Phuket, that we wanted to try as soon as we landed in Phuket.
We have both loved paragliding since forever and we wanted to experience it in Thailand. It is so much more than experiencing flight. Paragliding lets you interact with nature like nothing else. It gives you freedom of space and an incredibly wonderful flying excitement. Although it is as much fun as any other extreme sport, but paragliding takes fun to a whole new level, it is equally challenging and offers people a high level of adrenaline.
What’s special about paragliding in Phuket Island is the rare opportunity that enables you to see the serene and enchanting blue sea and the beautiful coast from the top. Even though we had tried paragliding earlier in Dubai in 2015, but if you are paragliding in Phuket for the very first time, you can easily hire professionals who will guide you how to do it right and take all your fears of flying away.
Our paragliding experience was one of the most amazing and exhilarating experience ever! The immense joy and freedom of flying over Phuket’s heavenly beaches lets you experience the breathtaking sensation that you cannot find anywhere else. The islands in Phuket are surrounded by pineapple fields, coconut plantations and dense evergreen forests. You can see the spectacularly beautiful coastline from above with iconic landmarks and national parks, giving and incredibly stunning 360 degree view.
Our tour in Phuket was 2 weeks long and we spent 10 days paragliding at different locations. We experienced the beautiful little town of Pak Nam Pran, traditional fishing village, known for its five star restaurants, bars, amazing nightlife, hotels and shops all within walking distance. There is so much to explore in this little town and its kiteboarding beach gives everything give you all the privacy you need with your spouse.
We spent our days and nights at one of the most beautiful locations Thailand has to offer, including Dolphin’s Bay, Casuarina Beach and Paradise Bay. Paragliding over Coronet Peak was our favorite! Our guides were just fantastic, friendly and extremely professional. At first it seemed scary and difficult to paraglide off a peak and felt as if we were jumping out of a plane or off some bridge, but that was one thrilling experience for both of us and we loved every minute of it.
The overall experience in Phuket was just superb. There is no other place I would rather go to than this heavenly island which has so much to offer. We are planning another trip with our colleagues this time and going to hit Phuket Island again…
