Balloon Rides

Angkor Balloon
Powered by GetYourGuide

Take a tethered helium balloon ride 200 meters straight up for a pretty good aerial view of Angkor Wat (1km away), the surrounding countryside and a couple of other temples peeking up through the jungle. The balloon itself does not float free, but is attached to the ground by a heavy teather that is reeled out then back in to allow the balloon to rise and return to the ground. The balloon itself is filled with helium with a fenced in gondola capable of holding more than a a couple dozen people. They give you about 10-15 minutes at the top, more than enough time to take in the full panorama and take plenty of pictures. The balloon does not run during inclement weather and is best on days that are not too windy. The big, yellow balloon is based about 1km east of Angkor Wat on the road from the airport. You can’t miss it. Usually you can show up without reservations and be on the balloon within 15-40 minutes. Admission $15/adult; $7.50/child.
