Do you love adventure sports? That rush of blood while hanging upside down rock climbing. That pounding heartbeat when you’re flying down a trail on your mountain bike. If you know what I’m talking about then Thailand is the place for you. AdventureHoney.com has a ton of awesome Thai adventure tours to satisfy your wildest adrenaline craving.
We’ve picked out 6 to get your juices flowing.
1. Rock Climbing in Krabi
Situated among a mass of intimidating limestone formations, Krabi is a rock climber’s paradise. Located on the west coast of southern Thailand, climbers can explore the many surrounding cliff faces or brave the limestone formations shooting straight out of the ocean itself! Still not convinced? Krabi has been named in the top five climbing destinations in the world, so you know you’re in for an amazing adventure experience. AdventureHoney offers one day rock climbing tours in the area, with English speaking instructors and first class climbing gear. If you’re feeling a little more adventurous try out our deep water soloing tours. Deep water soloing basically consists of climbers ditching the ropes and scaling structures surrounded by deep water. When ready, climbers push off and jump into the deep water below.
2. Water Sports in Chumphon
With some of the Thailand’s most spectacular beaches and stunning scenery, Chumphon is southern Thailand’s best-kept secret (just make sure you don’t tell anyone!) However the area is also known for something else; water sports. Its empty beaches and beautiful ocean provide the perfect conditions that sea loving adrenaline junkies come back for year after year. Try wakeboarding in Thailand on Thung wua Laen beach and relax with an icy cold beer Chang at one many nearby bars afterwards. Not as experienced in the water but still an adventure sports lover2? Try our one day discover kite surfing course or three day kite surfing experience you’ll be issued with an International Kite Organisation license on completion!
3. Zip Lining In Chang Mai
If there’s one experience that sticks with me from my first experience in Thailand it’s zip lining in Chang Mai. There is no better way to experience what Thailand’s crazy jungles have to offer than literally flying through the canopies. Make sure you bring your camera because words cannot describe the views you’ll get from the 2km of cables that span up to 400m! As if this adventure experience couldn’t get any better, you can round the day off with a Thai hill tribe to see and experience how the locals have lived for many hundreds of years.
4. Motorbike Tours in North Thailand
If you’ve ever seen the “Long Way Round” or “Long Way Down” you’ve probably dreamt about throwing your savings at the latest trail bike and riding off into the sunset. The 4-day motorbike tour of north Thailand is your perfect opportunity to live the dream. Exploring the best dirt biking trails that Thailand has to offer, this adventure tour is one of the most unique and exciting ways to explore Thailand’s rugged north. Giddy up!

Do you love cycling but hate the lycra modelling, car dodging antics that go with it? Then mountain biking is the adventure sport for you. Zip through rubber plantations, jungle villages and exhilarating downhill tracks on a 2-day mountain biking tour and you’ll finish with an adventure experience you wont forget. With gear and meals provided all you need is your spirit of adventure and appetite for a good time!
