Since 1989, Xbungy has been a bungee jumping operator in Thailand. It is well-known for its safety procedures. It is SANZ ( Standards Association of New Zealand) certified.

Keep in mind that they ensure your safety by not allowing you to jump if you have a medical condition or weigh less than 35 kg or more than 150 kg.

Best Time For Bungee Jumping In Thailand

Thailand's bungee jumping season is November through April. It's not too hot or humid. Avoid the rainy season in this tropical country and book your adventure early to avoid disappointment.

 

Minimum Age Regulations 

Most places have no bungee jumping age limit. Occasionally it's ten years. Instead, most venues mandate a minimum weight of 40 kg. Thus, children under 40 kg may not participate. Also, youngsters under 18 need parental consent.

 

Additional Tips For Bungee Jumping In Thailand

  • Pay close attention to your instructor. Their advice can prevent injuries.
  • Eat little before your leap.
  • Don't jump with your phone or weighty items in your pockets.
  • Sleep well and be calm before jumping. Relaxing and not being too weary before jumping reduces back/neck injury risk.
  • Some medical conditions prevent bungee jumping. For example, you can't jump if you're pregnant or have neck, back, or spinal injuries. In addition, cardiology patients can't leap. And you should consult a doctor before jumping if you have high blood pressure, epilepsy, asthma, or an eye injury. 
  • You can't leap if you've used drugs or alcohol.
  • Book your bungee jump well in advance. Overbooking can occur during peak times. Sometimes they can accommodate same-day jumps when it's not so busy, but you may have to wait.
  • When in doubt about jumping, visit the centre to witness the process before booking. They won't refund you if you cancel at the last minute.
