Flight of the Gibbon - worth 1 of our 3 days in Bangkok?

Hi guys,

Will be in Bangkok for 3 to 4 days later this month. I like the look of the Flight of the Gibbon activity.

Any opinions on if it is worth the time? Also I am not afraid of heights but am really freaked out by monkeys and other like creatures. Do you run into many animals whilst at the rainforest?

Thanks for any info.

I guess the name "Flight of the Gibbon" should give you a clue ;)

My understanding is that its up north in Chiangmai province, a very long way to go for a day trip, and it will be a big rush.

There is a Flight of the Gibbon in Chonburi, about 90 minutes south of Bangkok.

My friends have been thrilled with the experience!!

Have a look at the website and you tube.

Yeah the tour takes around 8 hours including travel time from Bangkok apparently. So I take it you have been to/heard about the other one and have good feedback?

Why would you bother to do it if you are freaked out by monkeys and other similar creatures...aversion therapy maybe?

Chonburi is not a natural habitat for monkeys! I will ask my friend who visited there yesterday what she saw.

Back soon................

It's called "Flight of the Gibbon", but I'm not too sure that monkeys or gibbons are sighted all that often.

We certainly didn't see any in Chiang Mai and when our guide was asked about them was told...oh.... "the hilltribe have eaten them all".

I didn't take the comment as tounge in cheek.

I think the title of the tour alludes to how the monkeys ''fly'' from tree to tree, not that there will actaully be monkeys there.
