1. Stand 43 stories above ground - and look down

Take in the sights of Melaka from the tallest building in this historical city: The Shore Sky Tower. The all-glass platform will force visitors to face their fear of heights, but if you're keen to take it up a notch, step onto the protruding glass deck and soak up the sights lying at your feet!

2. Ride on the world's first roller coaster for 1

District 21's Roller Glider is an adrenaline-fuelled combination of a zip line and a roller coaster. Hang on tight and feel the G force as you zip along the whole course filled with loops and curves! While you're there, don't forget to bungy-jump at the Free Fall section and go through their vertical labyrinth at The Maze.

4. Swim with the sharks (literally!)

Take the plunge at Aquaria KLCC and get to know the 5 different shark species in this 2.5 million litre tank! At the end of the 30 minutes of quality time with the sharks and the rest of the diverse sea life, don't forget to claim your "Dive with Sharks" T-shirt and wear it with pride!

5. Fly a plane

If you've ever harboured dreams of becoming a pilot, did you know you can actually fly a plane even if you have zero flying experience? The complete package offered at Subang Skypark Airport provides a thorough safety training before guiding you to fly the plane or helicopter of your choice: will it be a Cessna 172 aircraft or the EC120B heli for you?

Location: OXBOLD One Day Pilot Experience, Subang Skypark Airport

6. Take a leap of faith... out of an airborne plane

When you're freefalling from a plane at the speed of 120 mph, a minute can feel like a second. If you're new to skydiving, opt for tandem skydiving so that you're safely strapped to a certified instructor and can enjoy the adrenaline rush as you soar above the landscapes of southern Malaysia. Although trainings are provided in KL, the skydiving activity itself is done in Segamat, Johor due to limited airspace.

Location: Skydive Malaysia, 23, Jalan Indah 13, Taman Cheras Indah, 56100, Kuala Lumpur
Contact Number: +6013 346 7968

7. Hike up a Lord of the Rings-inspired mountain

The Mossy Forest of Gunung Irau gets its unusually mystical look due to its altitude of 2000m above sea level. Hiking all the way to the top of the mountain is a challenge due to the slippery and winding trails. Hiking to the summit usually takes around 4 hours, depending on fitness level but the view is well worth it - when else can you get an aerial view of the border between Pahang and Perak?

Location: Mossy Forest, Gunung Irau, Cameron Highlands

At the end of the day, life's always at its best when you take a walk on the wild side!
