1. Dive With Great White Sharks, South Africa

Most tourists to South Africa are praying they don’t come across a great white shark when entering the ocean. However, those who are either brave enough or just the right amount of crazy can dive with these beautiful beasts with nothing more than a stainless steel cage between you. Don’t worry, the tour operators will be sure to pour a bunch of bloody fish guts into the water just before you enter, so you’ll definitely get your money’s worth. This is one case where it’s OK to pee in the pool.

2. Zipline the Himalayas, Nepal

Climbing Mount Everest is old news. These days, real thrill seekers zipline the Himalayas. Nepal is now home to what has been described as the world’s most extreme zipline, which let travelers zoom across almost 1.8 kilometers of zipline at speeds of up to 140 kilometers an hour. Don’t forget about the over 600-meter drop to really get your heart pumping.

3. Cruise the Pirate Islands, South Philippines

Want some serious adventure and have a taste for danger? We definitely don’t recommend this, but feel free to rent a boat and cruise through the Autonomous region of the Southern Philippines, island hopping along the way. You’ll be sure to have some great fishing and see some beautiful sites, but you’ll also most likely get captured by pirates or extremist groups. Hopefully your family will have enough money for the ransom.
