If you desire, we would love to organize a balloon ride over the spectacular and amazing Angkor Wat for you.

As you fly over the Angkor temples, you will get an idea of the extensive history of the Angkor area, from it's design and structure to it's ruin and rediscovery. 

We can organize balloon tours based on your budget and desire, but the most commonly available, and certainly most popular trip, is a short trip over the Angkor temple area. The trip is available all day, but it is certainly worth booking ahead for a sunrise or sunset trip.
