For the bold family seeking extreme adventures, Phuket has a number of exciting choices to satisfy that adrenaline rush, including zip-line and canopy tours through the hillside jungles. Many of these tours are set up as team building eco-adventure activities. High above the trees, you can experience Phuket's natural scenery first hand and, if luck is on your side, come face to face with some of the island's native jungle species of lizards and birds.
There are four places on the island: Flying Hanuman, which is in Kathu, is open seven days a week from 8am to 6pm. Hanuman World is off the Chaofa West Road, near the Honda dealership. Turn down Muang Chaofa Rd (4010), pass the Mazda dealership and turn left after 200m. Open seven days a week from 8am to 6pm. Tarzan Adventure Phuket is on Ao-Yon - Khaokhad Road and it is open from 9am - 5pm.
And last, but probably the best, is Jungle Xtreme Adventures Park on Chaofa West Road, in the Chalong area, near Wat Mai Luang Pu Supa. Open seven days a week from 8am to 6pm. www.junglextreme.com
