Ubud jungle swing tips
They market the Ubud Swing like an extreme sport. They also do river rafting. If you swing at the highest level they make you wear a safety harness that’s not cute for photos. In my opinion, they should market it to the instagram crowd who wants a cute photo on a jungle swing.
My friend and I discovered that if you swing at the lower level, you don’t have to wear the huge harness but a tiny rope that you barely see. The key is to get a photo with your back facing the camera and one facing the camera. They let you switch sides. For girls, wear a flowly dress in a color that stands out like red, pink, orange, yellow, white.
If you wear blue or green you’re blend into the trees. Also, point your toes. Trust me, it makes a huge difference.
