To get to the Gibbon Experience we spent two days on a slow boat up the Mekong River. The boat is not the most comfortable and the scenery was all same, same but I got through a couple of good books and Paul listened to a load of albums on the IPOD so no complaints.

Then we started the Gibbon Experience - which is a three day, two night trip into Bokeo Nature Reserve. We're typing this 3 days after the trip and we are still so excited about it! Best trip we've done so far by a mile. You travel out into the nature reserve where you stay for two nights in different treehouses, which are 40 metres off the forest floor (see the pics the treehouses are so cool). You access the treehouses by zip lines and you also use the zip lines to search the forest canopy for the Black Gibbons which inhabit the trees. The first time we flew across the cable it was terrifying but after that it was brilliant!! We didn't get to see any gibbons (except for one who lives with the guides) but we heard them singing (they sound like sirens) very nearby on the last morning.


We shared our treehouses with Janice and James who were great travelling buddies. Still getting over saying goodbye to Janice in Chiang Mai yesterday..missing you Janice! We spent the evenings playing cards and exchanging stories (good & bad). Had great laugh.
