HOT AIR BALLOONS
There are two hot air balloon companies operating in the Siem Reap area, one of which offers a balloon ride that remains tethered to a rope, ascending and descending more or less vertically. At $20 for a ten-minute session, this is an affordable way to get unforgettable views of Angkor Wat and the surrounding countryside. Alternatively, 30-minute free-floating trips are also available but cost in excess of $100. Included in the price is hotel pick up, an English-speaking guide, exquisite views and, of course, an experienced pilot. The flight season runs approximately December-March, although the operation is weather-dependent.
