I was in the Bakan, the most sacred area in the highest level in Angkor Wat when I saw this yellow balloon. It’s an alternative for the tourists to get some great panoramas of Angkor area on a clear day.
The balloon with the maximum capacity of 30 people is not actually flying a tour , because it’s attached to a rope and ascents around 200 meters, then descents after floating a while. Because the distance between the balloon area and Angkor Wat is relatively close, -only 1 km to the west-, the passengers will get beautiful views of Angkor and surroundings, especially during sunset or sunrise.
Well, I’ve never tried this one, because some friends said that the ticket wasn’t cheap, -almost the same to the price of Angkor’s one day pass-, and lasts only for 10 minutes.
For those who have already been to Angkor, did you have tried this one? Is it really good???
