Best bungee jumping in the world

Facing my fears: Falling 233 metres from the world’s highest bungy jump

skydive brookeThere are just some things I simply refuse to do (or so I thought). Yep, you guessed it, bungy jumping has always been one of them.

Last year I skydived for the first time and thought it was such an incredible experience, that it had me wondering if I would ever tick a bungy jump off my bucket list. But it had almost been a year since my visit to Vegas when I considered the idea of jumping whilst in Hong Kong, by taking a short one hour ferry ride over to Macau for…. wait for it….

The world’s highest bungy jump

You think I’m nuts? Yeah, me too.

On the morning of my jump I was feeling quite okay about the idea – oddly calm. Too calm, in fact. But over the past half-year of travelling the world solo, I have become really comfortable with facing my fears and challenging myself. In fact, I’d say I’m a little hard to impress these days, having seen so much of the world and experienced some crazy things, such as skydiving or my first helicopter ride… but I will admit, bungy jumping has always been the ultimate challenge I thought I would never complete.

AJ Hackett’s Macau Bungy – The World’s Highest Jump

I’m not sure when or why my outlook changed, but it certainly did. Not only was I calm on the morning of my bungy jump (don’t forget this isn’t any old jump, it is the world’s highest – at 233 metres high!!!), but I was actually excited about what lay ahead.

The weather was pretty gloomy and I was worried the rain would impinge on my bungy plans – but luckily it wasn’t windy, so a few specks of rain wouldn’t be a problem.

I hopped on the ferry to Macau ($25 one way) and in a short hour I arrived at the Macau ferry terminal, passed through customs and immigration (don’t forget your passport!), and hopped in a taxi to the Macau Tower (around $5) to face my fears.

Once there, I met a group of young American girls who had also made the day trip especially to bungy – so I am lead to believe this is a popular choice for visitors to Hong Kong. If you do get the time, try to make a day out of it and explore Macau more in-depth, as it is quite a fascinating city. While it is commonly known as the ‘Las Vegas of the East’, from my previous visit here some 6 years ago and comparing it to my Las Vegas trip last year, I would say the two are incomparable. Macau is a classier, more refined casino city. It also has an interesting history and strong Portuguese influence remains throughout the old town.

So after checking in, signing my life away (I’m kidding, no one has ever died or been injured on an AJ Hackett bungy – they are the safest company in the world), getting suited up and harnessed up, I then sat and waited for my time to jump.

As I waited in line I began to think about what I would write when reviewing the experience. Then after enjoying the bungy so much that I would have gone for round two (yes, you read correctly)… I knew I had to convince readers and fans SOMEHOW to experience this for themselves. But that’s just the thing – I can’t convince you. I can only tell you how much I enjoyed my first bungy experience and how strongly I urge you to face your fears, conquer them, and be left thinking “why did I think it would be so bad anyway?”…. because that’s how I feel about it now. I could almost laugh at myself for being so scared of the idea of bungy jumping for so much of my life, because it was one of the best experiences of my life and I got to share it with hundreds of thousands of people around the world. It’s a crazy life I’m living at the moment, but I’m loving every minute of it!
