I don't know squat about Thailand, but I suggest you do a lot of research before choosing a parachuting outfit. Check they're properly registered with the government as well as their safety record. Take a look at their planes and equipment too. If you feel ANYTHING isn't right, then walk away. Getting involved with a bad outfit of any sort usually just costs you money; however, a bad parachuting outfit can likely cost you your life.

Why do you want to go parachuting in Thailand anyway? Why not just do it in Australia?

Or pop over to New Zealand...Thats where I did my first jump - many places to do it and soo soo beautiful. Guess it depends on the funds but they do many jumps a day in Taupo, felt like I was in good hands. Where ever you do I'm sure it will be all the rush you hope it'll be. NZ also has plenty of bungie jumping which I highly recommend!

There are some fantastic companies operating around the Whitsundays in QLD and also along the Great Ocean Road/Mornington Pennisular in VIC. Either of the places provides a great view over the ocean and cliffs as you jump.

As for jumpin in Thailand - I'm with Eric19382.... don't think the safety record is worth the risk.
