3. Ziplining in Chiang Mai, Thailand

Glide effortlessly through the canopy of the remarkably green Thai rainforest on a fantastic treetop adventure complete with high-flying courses and sweeping ziplines.
The rush of being up so high, combined with the genuine natural beauty of Chiang Mai, is sure to whisk you off your feet and give you a delicious dose of adrenaline.
4. Skydiving in Dubai, United Arab Emirates
We hate to be the bearers of bad news, but humans can’t fly.
We know, we know. It’s devastating information. However, you can come pretty close.
What makes skydiving in Dubai unique compared to anywhere else in the world is the fact that it’s a city jump. In contrast, many other destinations for the adrenaline-pumping activity are hosted in open, vacant areas.
You fly over the artificial archipelago of Palm Jumeirah, which provides you with surreal views of the entire city as well as the Persian Gulf.
5. Edgewalk along the CN Tower, Toronto, Canada
If you would like to live life on the edge literally, look no further than the CN Tower in Toronto.
At a height of 553 metres, you will feel as though you are leaning over the edge of the earth as your heart pounds, your palms sweat, and you revel in the excitement and adrenaline rush as you gaze to the booming metropolis below.
This experience allows you to gain a literal and figurative perspective on things while providing a fun and unique activity that is sure to be a perfect addition to your thrill-seeking repertoire.
