My friends and I wanted to try this out so we could get a beautiful bird's eye view of the entire Angkor Wat complex. However, we were disappointed on all three days that we were in Siem Reap. Our tour guide kept calling the balloon...More

The ride itself is short but given the only purpose for the ride is a photo opportunity above Angkor the duration is fine. The price of $20 usd for the 15 minute trip seems a little pricy for the photo opportunity it provides. If you...More

For USD 20 per pax may be steep to some travelers but the view is worth it. As the balloon raises, you will get to see the vastness of the field as well as Angkor in the sun.

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....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.

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...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...More
