Inside Vietnam: Cambodia Laos

Tethered balloon sunrise over Angkor

Witness the glories of Angkor from a unique perspective with a bird's-eye view of sunrise over the temples.

Witnessing the sun rise over the world's largest religious edifice, Angkor Wat, surely ranks as one of the great bucket-list experiences in Southeast Asia. And you can go one better by savouring it from a helium balloon tethered 120 metres above the jostling crowds below! This experience makes a breathtaking start to any day.
