We learned so much about the unfortunate animal trade involving gibbons who are exploited for tourism, such as clubs and bars using them to attract guests for photo ops. Gibbons that cannot survive in the wild are given a permanent, safe home at the GRP...More

A bit dissapointed that the place was so small. I wish they had given the gibbons a much larger enclosure, the place was very small.

We were able to see only three monkeys, all of them in cages. While helping abused animals is an excellent cause, there is little in this place to justify traveling there.

Don’t miss a visit here when in Phuket. We loved watching the gibbons activities and acrobatic swinging. Their song echoing in the jungle trees is an experience we will truly cherish. Very nice staff committed to their cause and to customer service.

Being on tripadvisor you would expect the GBR to focus on the needs and wants of tourists. However it is their focus on the wellbeing of the gibbons that makes this a worthwhile stop. If you are hoping to hold a gibbon or get up...More
