There is a great phenomenon occurring on the resort island of Koh Samui. People have finally gathered up enough courage to put down the coconuts and ignore the water buffalo fighting, drop the bar girls and Sangsom buckets and have some good crazy fun.
Samui Water Ball, commonly known as ‘Zorbing’, is a ball inflated with air and then filled with water that you ride inside of down a long ramp.
For something wacky, new and fun, you have to fit this experience into your holiday on Samui. The Water Ball run is set up at Bophut Hills Golf Club and definitely provides an adrenalin rush alternative for anyone not satisfied with a relatively sedate 9 holes of golf. They put you in a ball, throw in some buckets of water and then push you off a 10metre high tower and down a hill at 20pmh.
Its 200 metres of pure fun and adrenaline, so all you need to do is bring a towel and your swimwear! Perhaps keep the Sangsom buckets handy for some courage.
