PARASAILING, also known as parakiting, is an extreme sports activity where you glide through the air wearing an open parachute while being towed by a motorboat.

Time to cross off parasailing from your bucket list because you can now experience it in Lake Taal, just one hour away from Manila!

P.S. One of these days, I will bring our boys to experience this. Aidan is a bit scared of heights so I wasn’t able to convince him to try Parasailing this time. 🙁
