Friday Flyday: Soaring Above Angkor Wat

This is more of a teaser than a full story as I’m still working on editing the final video, but the experience was sufficiently spectacular that I think it is worth sharing even just a little bit of it to start.

I was in Cambodia earlier in the week and on a whim booked a 14 minute helicopter ride over the temple complex. It was absolutely spectacular. Not cheap, but a solid splurge activity and a great way to get a feel for the true scope of what they built so many centuries ago.


Angkor Wat is massive and it isn’t the largest complex in the park, though it is the largest single religious building in the world. Cruising above was a ton of fun.

  1. I am very impressed. Didn’t know that such s flight was available. Adding this to the itinerary next year.

  2. How much did it cost? Who did you reserve the helicopter ride with? I will be there in May 2016, do you really think it is worth the $$$?

  3. Angor Wat is a pretty special place, but I’m not sure I buy the “single largest religious building in the world” statistic.

    1. That’s the data they share. I haven’t 100% checked it but the space is massive. I cannot think of any larger off hand.
