Ziplining with Flight of the Gibbon

Zipline with Flight of the Gibbon

I can’t believe it’s been 8 months since my girls trip to Thailand and we’re preparing to head to Morocco in a few weeks. Outside of surviving a super long flight, one of the most memorable moments was zip lining for the first time. We wanted to end the trip with a bang so we researched companies that had ziplining around the areas we stayed. Read more about my zipline experience with Flight of the Gibbon.

Booking the Tour

We booked our tour online a few weeks before the trip. The website has an easy online form asking the date, pickup location, number of guests and pickup time. There are three pickup stops from Bangkok so we chose the location closest to AETAS Lumpini. Since we had to be back at the hotel by 2 PM for our airport pickup, we picked 6 AM. After filling out your billing information, you’re directed to pay via PayPal. The order will be in Thai Baht so make sure to calculate the cost based on your own currency. At the time of my visit, $1 USD was approximately 30฿.

The Experience

The drive from Bangkok was about an hour and a half. Since we were out late celebrating my friend’s birthday, it was a great way to catch a good nap before arriving. The zipline location is located in Khao Kheow Open Zoo so we were “greeted” by monkeys upon arrival. After filling out safety forms and getting a brief overview of how our morning would start. The course is a total of 25 points that include a combination of forest walks, individual and paired ziplines, rappelling, and walking over sky bridges. Click here to view the course map we took.

I love flying, being on top of mountains and tall buildings, but I’m absolutely afraid of heights (you can tell by my first pic). The “baby” zips were super easy, but they were a joke compared to going over the bridges and staircases. The higher we went, the more exciting it was. 

The total course time was about 45 minutes and once we were done, we had a traditional Thai lunch followed by a tram tour of Khao Kheow Open Safari Park. We took pictures of the different animals which included lions, hippos, rhinos, elephants, giraffes and more. I even got to take a picture in front of the continent destination for our next girls trip: Africa.

The ziplining experience was something I was happy to get off my bucket list. It was a fun-filled fear-facing adventure (say that 3xs fast) and it was even better with friends. I hope to do it again the next time I’m in Puerto Rico. For more information about booking Flight of the Gibbon from Bangkok, Pattaya or Chiang Mai, visit them online.

    What a unique experience to do in Thailand. I’ve been to Bangkok a few times and didn’t realise this was just on its doorstep. I remember when I went zip lining in Costa Rica. Embarrassingly, the video I had was of me screaming bloody mary across the rainforest! Well done for crossing it off your list.

    This looks like so much fun. But I have a feeling I would freak out half way through.

      The bridges and rappelling got me nervous, but the zips were super fast.

    I’ve never tried any of those things except maybe a sky bridge! I’m totally jealous and want to experience ALL of this! I’m super scared or wild animals. Not sure I want to visit Thailand even though it’s so cheap. Your trip looked amazing! Thanks for sharing!

    Ziplining is such an amazing feeling. I’ve only done it on a cruise. I’m adding it to my list again next time I travel overseas.

    I have to applaud your courage. I definitely would NOT have been able to do this. It looks like tons of fun though.

    I LOVE ziplining. I’m not a fan of all the hiking with equipment on it takes to get to the zipling but the activity itself is one of my favourites!

    I have been zip lining once. I thought it was an amazing experience. I would love to do it again in an exotic place or just a place with a view.
