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. Besides 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 in. We settled on the Flight of the Gibbon Bangkok / Pattaya Zipline because it was the closest one to the city. Read more about my zipline experience with Flight of the Gibbon Bangkok/Pattaya.
About Flight of the Gibbon Bangkok/ Pattaya
The Flight of the Gibbon was founded in 2007 and is Thailand’s first and now the largest and most trusted Zipline experience in Asia. In addition to having multiple locations close to Bangkok/Pattaya and Chiang Mai, the company is an advocate of responsible ecotourism.
Flight of the Gibbon Price
The price for Flight of the Gibbon depends on the type of package you purchase. The Bangkok / Pattaya tour includes add-ons such as bicycling and race car driving. We chose the Bangkok/Pattaya Zipline Experience which was ฿4199. With exchange rates from USD to Baht at 1:30 so we paid around $133. The total time was 7 hours from pick-up to drop-off. The zip line tour included transport to/from Bangkok, entrance fee, lunch buffet, drinks (coffee, tea, water), and a Tram tour of Khao Kheow Safari Park. Here’s more information about what is included in the Bangkok/Pattaya Zipline Experience at the time of our trip:
- maximum of 9 people on the tour (there were 6 on our trip)
- 2 fully trained Sky Rangers assigned to each group
- 2 hours of Ziplining through the ancient Thai rainforest
- Learn about the rainforest from local experts
Booking our Flight of the Gibbon Bangkok/Pattaya Tour Online
We booked our zip line tour in the planning phases of the trip online. Their website has an easy online form asking for 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 chose the 6 AM zipline tour. After filling out your billing information, you’re directed to pay with your credit card or PayPal. The order will be in Thai Baht so make sure to calculate the conversion rates based on your own currency.
Flight of the Gibbon Bangkok Review
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, we received a brief overview of how our morning would start. The zip line course is a total of 25 points that include a combination of forest walks, individual and paired ziplines, abseils, sky bridges, and spiral staircases.
I love flying, and 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 duration of the zipline course was about two hours. 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 which is in Africa.
The whole 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 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 Bangkok/Pattaya or Flight of the Gibbon Chiang Mai, visit them online.

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.
Ziplining is so much fun. It looks like you had a good time.
I’ve heard Thailand is amazing! This trip looks like so much fun. Enjoy Morocco.
This looks terrifying for someone like me who is scared of heights! Good one you though, nice one ?
Looks like an amazing experience! I don’t know if I would have the nerve to zip-line!
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 to applaud your courage. I definitely would NOT have been able to do this. It looks like tons of fun though.
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.
Looks like an amazing time. I’ve always wanted to go ziplining!
That looks like a lot of fun! I love ziplining but not looking down lol!
lol same here
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!
I love trips like this
Seems you had so much fun on this trip
We did! It was a first for me and one of my friends so it was that much more memorable.
Looks so fun! While in Costa Rica, I went ziplining and I was such a thrill. OMG. And Thailand is totally on my bucket list!
I’d love to visit Costa Rica! It went so fast we didn’t even want it to end.
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.
Looks awesome! There are a few zip lines on the island here I really need to try out – you reminded me!! Enjoy your next trip.
I also went ziplining in Thailand when I visited Chang Mai! and it was such a cool experience! Thanks for sending me down to memory lane! 🙂
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.
ziplining looks so exciting 😀 I really want to do this some day 😀
Very well narrated. Tried it in Germany. It is awesome for the first time. But for Thailand, I will look forward to beaches 🙂
What a fun girls trip! I’ve never done proper zip lining but I really want to try! This looks incredible.
