Enjoy the Siem Reap Balloon ride with a bird’s eye view of Angkor and its historical landmarks as you sail with the clouds and admire the majestic Angkor Wat. From the balloon’s vantage point, you will able to see the city of Siem Reap and the Baray, which is a large 10th century structure that offered irrigation and more functions which are unknown.
Ascend over the skies and embrace the picturesque Cambodian countryside with its villages and rice fields, the climax of your sightseeing in Angkor. Roughly 1km west from Angkor Wat a large yellow helium balloon which looks like a giant egg yolk offers visitors a view of the magnificent Angkor temples. The helium balloon is attached to a rope and soars approximately 200 metres, floats for some time and then descends.
It only lasts around 10 minutes, but it is enough to get some amazing pictures of Angkor Wat on a clear day. The balloon will carry 30 passengers and ascends around 30 times a day from sunrise all the way to sundown. The ride is conducted two times daily during sunset and sundown in the province of Siem Reap. As safety comes first, the flight will be cancelled due to the weather, such as rainy and windy days, which are not suitable for flight. In this case you will be able to refund the flight fees or change to another flight without any extra charge.
A trip to Cambodia’s World Heritage Temples of Angkor complex is obviously high on the list for many travellers. It is the crucial expression of Khmer genius, an irresistible temple that is beautiful for both its incredible detail and its grand scale.
Angkor Wat is famous for having more than 3000 enticing heavenly nymphs carved into its walls. Each of them is exclusive, and there are 37 different hairstyles for up-and-coming stylists to check out. A lot of these exquisite nymphs were dented during efforts to try and clean the temples with chemicals during the 1980s, but they are currently being restored by the teams with the German Apsara Conservation Project. Bat droppings and urine also degrade the refurbished carvings over time.
Angkor Wat: Group Tour with Khmer Dinner and Balloon Ride
Start your day with a pick-up from your hotel at 8:00am where you will be transferred to the Angkor Wat ticket office to purchase your Angkor Pass (at your own expense), before setting off to Angkor Wat, one of the best-preserved archaeological sites in Southeast Asia. Spend the day exploring the temples of Angkor National Park. Begin with the Angkor Wat Temple, considered as one of the seven wonders of the world. Discover the massive Angkor Wat and be enchanted by its intricately carved walls, complexity, columns, and chambers. With the assistance of your professional guide, see the symbolic meanings of its architecture and carvings and gain a deeper appreciation of Khmer culture.
Next, you will be driven to the fortified city of Angkor Thom. Enter through the South Gate as you walk in the middle of a causeway flanked from side to side by symbolic statues of demons and gods. The entire length of the causeway contains a total of 108 mythical creatures serving as guards to the fortified city. Then, visit the majestic Bayon Temple, one of the most popular temples within the Angkor Thom Complex. Be enthralled by over 200 large faces carved on 54 towers, which at that time signified the 54 provinces of the Khmer Empire. Continue your exploration at the Terrace of the Elephants and Terrace of the Leper King.
In the afternoon, proceed to the ethereal Ta Prohm Temple, built in AD 1186 by King Jayavarman VII and witness how the trunks of trees seem to devour the temples. After the tour of the temples, you’ll have the opportunity to rise 200 meters over the site if the weather is right, by a fastened helium balloon to enjoy the sun setting over the jungle and temple. At night, have a Khmer cooked dinner with a classic local Cambodian restaurant. Experience famous Khmer hospitality and intermingle with real Cambodian services.
