Extreme sports and tourism have been making inroads into Thailand for many years now. There are now skateparks, wakeboarding circuits and climbing tours in cities and popular locations around Thailand. However, one of the most interesting new ideas for attractions and tourism in Thailand is the evolution of ecotourism. Thailand’s natural beauty is one of it’s biggest draws with millions of people coming to experience its breathtaking beaches and idyllic islands, tropical jungles and misty mountains. The problem has always been that tourism has brought too much destruction and degradation to the environment, but eco-tourism is one way to reverse this damage while still benefiting the local people.
Ziplining has emerged as one such way to keep people engaged with a fun new way to explore the jungle. Indeed, ziplining on its own is just fun as well, since it provides a rush of adrenaline for flying through air with only a harness attached to line. Pattaya is a spot in Thailand where you can experience ziplining and even a nature tour. Here’s a couple of suggestions for ziplining in Pattaya.
The staff at Flight of the Gibbon is well-trained and they will ensure your safety through the entire course. The two skyrangers, the guides who will accompany the zipliners, will also point out interesting facts about the jungle and the plants and animals that are present there. The tour even goes through Khao Kheow Open Safari Park and you get to take the tram tour where you can see various animals such as monkeys, gibbons, rhinos, giraffes, elephants and so much more. You will even get the chance to feed some of these animals by hand. The other upside to enjoying a ziplining tour with Flight of the Gibbon is that they use part of the earnings to fund their conservation projects that include planting new trees, rehabilitate animals and giving underprivileged communities the chance to experience ziplining. To conclude, Flight of the Gibbon is a great way to see the natural beauty of Thailand, while helping the environment too.
