Bangkok, Thailand (PressExposure) May 12, 2009 -- TreeTop Asia is proud to announce the opening of Flight of the Gibbon Adventure Tour Bangkok. The grand opening of this world-class tour will be on June 1st, 2009. Press are invited to join in on the experience. The soft launch begins May 21st for the general public and reservations are available now through the website. The new tour will allow visitors to "fly" through the rainforest canopy on a state-of-the-art, ultra-safe system of zip-lines. At over three kilometers in length, the zip-line course will be even bigger and longer than TreeTop Asia's original Flight of the Gibbon Adventure Tour in Chiang Mai. Opening at the same location on June 21, 2009 will be the Go Gibbon Adventure Course, which is an outdoor jungle-gym that will feature climbing, zip-lining, and an exhilarating "tarzan swing" through the forest and across a lake. Both activities are suitable for all-ages.
Building on the phenomenal success of Flight of the Gibbon Adventure Tour in Chiang Mai, TreeTop Asia now brings this exciting and educational opportunity to even more foreigners and Thai nationals alike.
The Bangkok Adventure Tour site is nestled in the heart of one of Thailand's most stunning natural settings. Visitors will experience the majesty of the rainforest while engaging in exciting, low environmental-impact activities. The site is bordered on one side by the 30,000 hectare Chompoo Wildlife Sanctuary, which is bursting with rainforest animals, including wild storks and cheeky monkeys. The sanctuary is also home to the more elusive gibbons, wild boar, bears, deer and hornbills. On the other side of TreeTop Asia's Bangkok site is the Khao Kheo Open Safari, Thailand's only "open safari".
Zip-line tours have been gaining popularity around the world in recent decades and TreeTop Asia takes pride in staying on the cutting edge of the sport. The tours provided by TreeTop Asia are of the highest quality and customer safety is the company's top priority. They use only the highest-rated, top-of-the-line equipment and all guides are thoroughly trained in zip-line instruction, first-aid and rainforest wilderness skills.
The owners of TreeTop Asia have been operating in Asia for 20 years with a zero-accident record. In addition to safety, Flight of the Gibbon Bangkok and the Go Gibbon Adventure Course both provide exciting rainforest exploration and education about the surrounding wildlife and habitat.
The Chiang Mai site continues to receive glowing reviews from customers both young and old, both timid and wild. Even people who are a little anxious before the experience have a great time, "Considering I'm scared of heights... this was one of the most memorable parts of my trip to Thailand... I would recommend it to all those traveling to Chiang Mai," said Flight of the Gibbon visitor, Priya via FaceBook.

"When people visit Thailand we want them to see more than just the tourist hot-spots," says Barret Agent, Environmental Education Coordinator at Flight of the Gibbon. "Riding a zip-line through the treetops provides visitors with an experience of these exquisite rainforests previously reserved for only a select group of scientists and researchers."
Admission to the Khao Kheo Open Safari is included in the purchase of a ticket for either Flight of the Gibbon Bangkok or the Go Gibbon Adventure Course.
