What it says in the tin: are there any bungee jumping sites - preferably in the Irrawady or Central Myanmar region - that are open throughout out the year as opposed to open as special events?

As Έρικ Κωνσταντόπουλος, I doubt that Irrawaddy or Central region have bungee-jumping capabilities, but not based on an undated article that mentions "it may just be a matter of time".

In my case I doubt anywhere in Myanmar yet offers bungee jumping on a regular basis.

From the same site as that article (Myanmar Burma.com) the question is posed:

Who is going to be the first to take a leap in Myanmar?

In this case the article is dated, 26 Mar 2013.

On the Myanmar forum mingalapar Maibpenrai, showing as from Bangkok/Yangon, posted shortly after the above (15 June 2013 - 07:57):

It seems to be than Bungee Jumping in Myanmar is not available yet

Thereafter it is a matter of assumptions and deductions. The Burmese do not have a cultural heritage such as Vanuatu has for land diving and the introduction of bungee jumping there can be expected to relate specifically to the expansion of tourism. (In 2015 tourist visits numbered only 1.3M.) For that advertising can be expected nowadays and this OP's failure to find what he was looking for can be taken to indicate that such does not exist (yet). The signs are however that it will do before very long, so should be worth monitoring the situation.

Myamar Offers Fine Bungee-Jumping Sites

You can bungee-jump from almost anywhere—towers, jagged cliffs and even helicopters. So it may just be a matter of time before extreme sports enthusiasts can take the plunge in Myanmar.

Although this country’s tourism industry is still in its infancy, it’s already grabbing the attention of thrill-seekers looking for a remote spot to explore, the same kind of folks who love bungee-jumping. The potential spots for this activity are endless.

Travelers may one day be able to dive off the 102-meter-high Gokteik Viaduct, the tallest bridge in Myanmar (Burma), or the steep jungle walls of Bahmo Gorge. In downtown Yangon, there’s the Maha Bandula Bridge and the 22-story Traders Hotel.

Of course, these are just ideas. You’ll just have to wait and see where bungee-jumping will be first offered in Myanmar.

But, I doubt that Irrawdy or Central region have bungee-jumping capabilities at all.

  • @TonyK Yeah, isn't there any regular cliff? – EKons Sep 3 '16 at 8:39
