Angkor from the air
Balloons and helicopters
What we say:
The balloon is set to the west of Angkor Wat on the road to the airport. The balloon rises about 200 metres into the air and offers good views of both Angkor, Phnom Bakheng and other nearby monuments.
There are at least two operations offering helicopter tours, though we're not sure how popular they are as we've never, ever seen one in action. The two main operators are Helicopters Cambodia and Sokha Helicopters.
Balloon rides cost US$15, helicopter trips start at $90 for an eight-minute ride and go into the thousands for multi-stop, regional tours. You can now also take a tour by microlite with Sky Venture, which is proving tremendously popular â€“ it's much cheaper than helicopter and way more fun than the balloon.
