As many people have said, you get some great views of Angkor Wat, but it isn't cheap for the time you get, but we found it enough time to see everything and get plenty of pictures. It's great to see the surrounding countryside as well. I think we lucky as there had been a lot of rain and they had... More

This is one waste of money, although it is supposed to go up a min 120 ft, the day was windy and so we had to settle at 100ft and for the same time duration. Its a tethered balloon and so keep your expectation to minimal if you want to experience anything new. You may want to go here only... More

Post finishing the Angkor Wat, I was intrigued by this giant balloon in the air and post checking with my guide, he informed me that its fix balloon which goes up in the sky and you can get the complete serial view of the Siem Reap city including the Angkor wat temple. So we went around 12.45 PM (peak heat)... More

We called in to Angkor Balloon when we had finished at Angkor Wat as it is located on the road just outside. It was quiet so we didn't have to wait, just paid and we were off. It is a tethered balloon ride but does rise to about 120 meters and does have some movement with the wind. The view... More

あまり知られていないのか、昼前にも関わらず同乗したのはたったの3人。 天候に問題さえなければ少人数でも、運行してくれる。 事前に運行しているか確認できる手段がなかったので、旅行初日に行った時は風が強く乗れなかったが、翌日は天候が良かったので乗れました。 価格は一人当たりUS$20. 乗っている時間は10分くらいです。 空気も澄んでいて清々しい風を感じることができました。 車の場合は、アンコールワットに入るための有料VISAが必要ですが、トゥクトゥクに乗れば小道を走ってくれるので、VISAなしで行けます*\(^o^)/* If weather is good, you can ride it even though at least 3 people. If you will not using a car, you don't need to charge a VISA for entrance fee at Angkor Wat. Price US$20. Time 10 minutes.

We went up in the balloon at about 7.15 am. We were in the balloon by ourselves and there was no one waiting to ride so we got to spend a considerable time in the air. The views of Angkor Wat, Phnom Bakheng and the surrounding countryside are great. Our photos do not do the view justice. It is well... More

Quick and easy to get to and do. Not a long balloon experience as tethered to the ground by a cable. Views depend on the clarity of the atmosphere! Not at all scary as only went up less than 100 metres. Good for kids for a first balloon experience.

Just a great thing to do if you are at Angkor Wat, great views but a bit scary! Reasonably priced, located just outside Angkor Wat, nice to do before or after you visit the temple.

The ballon is stationery an moves up to a height of 100m. If you have clear skies you can see all of Siem Reap. We just had 2 of us in the balloon but I think if it is busy you may not get the opportunity to move around ring to view all the sites so recommend you choose the... More

I wanted a helicopter tour , but was not available on the day of my visit , but got a chance and chose this for 20 dollars a person. There was no queue and was only one other couple . The Balloon is fixed to a rope and went up quickly . It remained at the top for around 5-7... More
