Bungee jumping in Korea used to be part of a ritualistic ceremony for people attaining adulthood. The highest bungee jumping is in Macau and was featured in Running Man. As i didnt want to spend too much time travelling to a bungee jumping place, I went to Yuldong Park to attempt bungee jumping instead.
For those who have gone to bungee jump at Yuldong Park and is interested to try another one, there is one at Gapyeong, near Nami Island.
So I went for my Yuldong Park bungee jump with George and Grace. From Seo Hyeon station exit 2, we cabbed to the place. It was around 4500won. The taxi ride was less than 5 minutes.
the staff helping George and Grace with their harness. Apparently, different bungee jump outlets have different safety measures. Some bungee jumping centres only tie a rope at their ankle while some have harnesses. I prefer the one with the harness as it gives me some reassurance that I won’t die. like what if the rope at your ankle snaps? then bye bye Liao *shudders*

According to my friends, it was a great experience! So do try bungee jumping when you go to Korea, it is a must-try! But if you want more kick, more thrill, go for Macau bungee jump! It is the highest in the world.
