The Bradt Guide 100 Animals to See Before They Die (2007) offers Gaoligong, Wuliang, and Ailao Mountain Nature Reserves, all in Yunnan Provinces. But notes a sighting is unlikey.

 

In Vietnam:

Che Tao forests Che Tao commune, Mu Cang Chai district, Yen Bai Province;

Nam Pam, Hua Trai and Ngoc Chien communes, Muong La District, Son La Province;

Khoen On commune, Than Uyen district, Lao Cai Province

 

The Gibbon Experience in Bokeo Nature Reserve, Laos, offers a chance, too. You're at least likely to hear them.
