Guide to Thailand skydive holidays

Most people associate Thailand with incredible food, backpacking and full moon parties. But (if you’ll pardon the pun) skydiving is really taking off . Thailand skydive experiences are fast becoming a feature of any holiday in this incredible country and it’s not hard to see why.

Skydiving in Thailand is highly recommended. This is because unlike many other destinations around the world, the predictable Thai weather means there is less chance of a cancellation. The warm, equatorial climate remains fairly constant all year round (apart from the predictable monsoon season).

The cost of skydiving in Thailand also makes it very appealing. Whilst not so cheap as to warrant concern about safety, a Thailand skydive experience won’t set you back nearly as much as a similar skydiving in Europe.

Skydiving in Pattaya

There are several places you can jump around the country such as Klaeng Airfield east of Rayong. But without doubt the airfield at Nong Khor Reservoir, about 30-40 minutes north of Pattaya is the most popular jump zone.

Located a 90 minutes drive south east of Bangkok, and just an hour from the Suvarnabhumi International Airport. The drop zone run by Thai Sky Adventures is easy to reach by public transport from both Bangkok and Pattaya.

You can either do a day trip, stay local or book a hotel in Pattaya for a couple of days. Whether you’re a first-timer or experienced jumper, few dropzones in the world can compete with Pattaya.

When you’re falling from over 13,000ft, you’ll see why. With stunning views across the Gulf of Thailand, you might even be able to glimpse the sprawling capital of Bangkok far in the distance.
