Chingrai Times – Flight of the Gibbon Zip Line Chiang Mai– From May until the end of October, 2012, ziplining in the only rainforest locations in Thailand, and a room night at one of eight of the country’s top hotels will cost less. Flight of the Gibbon zipline canopy tours and Imperial/IMM Hotels will partner to offer an adventure package that combines the thrill of ziplining with the comfort of a quality hotel room for 3299 baht, the cost of just the zipline tour until the end of October, 2012.
The time period between May and October is usually called off-season and associated with the rainy season for many, but the partnership was created to promote it as the ‘green season’ and help increase awareness that Thailand is a great place for outdoor adventure and quality lodging all year around. The lack of crowds and the lush vegetation in the jungle and mountain areas can make touring around Thailand ideal at this time of year. As far as the rain goes, during the rainy season, it generally rains only about an hour a day in either Chiang Mai or Bangkok where the adventure packages originate.
The offer is based on the purchase of two zipline canopy tours and double occupancy for the hotel room. Up to three people can stay in each room and accommodations include breakfast for each person and round trip transportation from the hotel to the zipline courses, about one hour away from each hotel. There are seven hotels to choose from in Chiang Mai, but only one in Bangkok, and reservations are on a first come, first served basis, so the companies suggest reservations be made early.
For those interested in staying only in Chiang Mai, an additional hotel room night at Imperial/IMM Hotels is included with the purchase of a Segway Gibbon two hour tour of Chiang Mai for 1999 baht. Segway Gibbon is owned by the same company that runs Flight of the Gibbon, Treetop Asia. Chiang Mai visitors experience a glided tour on the world’s first electric, self-balancing personal transport vehicle featuring stops at the most popular and historic landmarks in Chiang Mai.
