Why adrenaline junkies rush to China destination

14th May 2013

China's Macau Tower heads a league table of leading hotspots for adrenaline junkies.

Exhilarating destinations in VirtualTourist's Top 10 Spots to Get an Adrenaline Rush would make up the perfect specialist tours itinerary for holidaymakers seeking high adrenaline activities.

The 765ft (233.1 metre) Macau Tower can bolster tailor-made holidays for those for whom a caravan and deckchair weekend in Bridlington may not be quite enough in terms of fun and adventure.

The tower hosts the world's highest bungee jump, with views that are as spectacular as they are terrifying.

It also provides skywalks so you can explore the tower's perimeter on the rim with a harness but without needing a leap of faith.

Organisers also offer a tower climb. Although it doesn't involve leaping, it's even higher than the bungee.

Meanwhile, trekking holidays to Mount Everest Base Camp near Kathmandu, Nepal, boast truly awe-inspiring views from the Nepalese side.This has an altitude of 17,598ft (5,636.8 metres) and requires dedicated training and planning.

Increasingly popular zip-lining in Costa Rica gives a total adrenaline surge, while offering a unique way to see ecology, botany, and animals up close up under a rainforest canopy, according to the top 10 list.The best are in Monteverde, Arenal, and Manuel Antonio.

The list also suggests that white-water rafting on the Zambezi, Africa, just downriver from Victoria Falls along Zimbabwe's borders, is particularly fun from July to January.

Other spots mentioned include the Nile River near Jinja, Uganda.
