This country is well-known to have its scenic sites, beautiful beaches, tourist attractions for its white sands, and happy people. Enough of that smooth welcoming introduction. TRY giving in to these awesome adventures. Some more of extreme and some are just for average people wanting to try something in their lives that is new and more difficult to accomplish. Well, not that difficult but the word extreme may be more appropriate to the situation.
There are couple of things this country can take you aside from swimming and plunging in to their beaches and tour in their international destinations. Unfortunately, these aren't the main reasons why tourists come in so continue to read the rest of article for you to gain new things to do in the Philippines and someday try out these activities.
1. Flying a Plane
Okay, don’t think about flying MAJOR planes while in the city. Have you seen movies wherein drivers are allowed to drive even if they aren’t that expert? Flying small and stylish planes. This adventure is present in Angeles City. Angeles City Flying Club will offer pilot training and plane rental for people who are ready to experience flying an aircraft.
It is important that you are interested and you are willing to do this with strength and endurance because you can’t fly if you are doubtful to accomplish this sort of extreme, I should say, kind of sport.
2. Trapeze Rush
Remember when you were a child and you love trying out the ferries wheels because you were told by a friend that it was awesome? Then, try this sky flying adventure. Adrenaline rush when you are at how many meters above land swinging and nothing to hold on to except a bar and the person that you are next to.
This is the only flying trapeze rig that can fit your whole body and can consist of two or more people. A form of exercise in your upper muscle and bones as well. Aside from that, it can also be fun and once in a lifetime experience. It is located in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.
3. White-Water Rafting
Always a famous sport in Cagayan De Oro City. As this is a dangerous sport, I suggest you to go there with people whom you are close with. Those that you rely on and those that you have been traveling for most places. White water rafting is an activity wherein you will be on an inflatable boat sailing and cruising on a very strong, turbulent current.
That is on a river not on a usual beach or any of that. You are to be placed with helmets and life jackets as to ensure your safety and the rest of the members of the group. It’s no problem if you are a beginner since they have different categories for age groups and body types.
4. Giant Swing
Almost the same as Trapeze Rush. Experience this at Sandbox Alviera Porac, Pampanga. Giant swing as the name comes from lets you experience a very high and top swing back and forth while in the air. Not usual for those who don’t do these sports but this is extremely breath-taking as you are put into motion while in the air and at the same time a high kilometer above land.
5. Zipline adventure
Located in South Cotabato or any other parts of the Philippines. There are many places but South Cotabato has one of the longest ride when it comes to zipline adventures. As I have researched, it is considered as the highest zipline in Southeast Asia. 600 feet above the ground. As you start your zipline experience, it doesn’t only take you to extreme experience above but it will give you a wonderful view from where you are hanged. It will let you forget about how scary it is once you are there at the top and seeing the wonders of nature such as the green grass, the good land, and the seven waterfalls.
Yes 7 waterfalls which you will pass by. You can do it with your partner or loved one. It is better that way for the two of you to make the most of your zipline experience here in the Philippines.
Proven and reviewed among others that the Philippines has one of the most tourist adventures and destinations. I believe the weather and the people make it more interesting aside from the places which are no doubt one of the best in the world. Come and join the fun as you get these thrilling trips, slides, and swings.
