The competition will take place off four cliffs in different parts of Krabi, with the first taking place off a 24 m high cliff in Wang Long Bay on Phi Phi Don. The second site will be at Maya Bay on Phi Phi Leh with a 27 m high platform staring cliff divers in the face.

The final two sites will be at Viking Cave and Hong Island, 24.5 m and 28 m respectively.

Spectators and judges will have amazing 90-degree views from several angles on Hong Island as the divers twist and somersault their way into the warm waters of the Andaman Sea. 

The event begins at 9.30 am and will continue until 12.30 pm. For more informationi regarding travelling to the event and tickets, contact selected local tour operators here.
