The park itself is a wonderful place to visit, you can rent bicycles and cycle around at leisure, go hiking or even take a jeep to explore the area. Gibbons sing in the mornings and the jungle comes alive at dusk. There are waterfalls, massive...More

We spent the day in the park on pushbikes, saw lots of birds up-to about 11am when it went pretty quiet. Also saw a family of macaques pretty close up. Despite what some of the reviews say, you can certainly see lots of birds if...More
We saw different gibbon families, plus black langurs, on each day in the park. There are plenty of birds, insects and the walking itself is beautiful.

The best thing to do at Cat Tien is to take the Gibbon Tour (the early morning one). It is overly expensive but it is by far the highlight of the park if you want to see wildlife and supposedly the funds go back tot he park. You don't have to stay in the Park to do it (we stayed on the otherside of the river - you just have to pay a little more to catch the ferry over in the morning. It includes breakfast and there's quite a bit of time after you've done the tour and when you go on the bonus Gibbon Sanctuary trip so we walked back into the jungle and managed to spot some monkeys on our own. A bonus highlight. It is recommended to pre-book as there are only 4 spaces per day. We stayed a few days so booked when we arrived but I think you can book with the tourism office prior to arrival. Google Cat Tien Gibbon Trek. Treks are run by the local rangers.
