Never been in a hot air balloon, and it being on my bucket list couldn't pass this opportunity. The hot air balloon can only operate between November and mid March so my timing was good. Contacted via website. ( I later met a girl who said she thought you had to go to Siem Reap city centre but you can... More

So i asked the guide of the tour why they miss taking people there. His reply was that it is too dangerous. For Cambodians life is dangerous that is why they put food out in front of idols. They don't know how to swim because it is dangerous. However the truth is the hot air balloon is a must do... More

Book this in advance as they have 2 balloons with total capacity of 18 guests. Price USD 100 per person but if you lucky an agent may offer you USD 90 per person. The balloon company will come to pick you and drop you back at the hotel after the flight. Both the captains are Chinese and well experienced. Beautiful... More

My first ever hot air balloon trip. Well organised with an on time pick up from the hotel. Great view flying over the Bayon temple at about 1,000 feet. Landing very efficient and pick and drive back to the hotel went smoothly. Highly recommended.

How many people would like to say that ‘I went hot air ballooning over Cambodian temples at a 1000 feet”. My wife and I took the sunset air cruise lasting over one hour that was silent and at the whim of the light breeze. As a current pilot it is something of a rare experience, since it is so expensive... More

Took the sunrise tour this morning, but we were not able to see the actual sunrise as there were difficulties getting the balloon propped up due to the winds. When we finally did get up in the air it was a nice view of the country side on the outskirts of Siem Reap. Yes, we had the Chinese pilot, but... More

First. Read their website. Understand that it's not a balloon flight over Angkor Wat (that's not possible). This is a real Hot air balloon. It's flight has limited control, you just float with the breeze. If the weather isn't suitable it will be cancelled. Not the fault of the company, they are concerned about your safety. Now. This was an... More
