Yes,it is...I did a helicopter tour last September and flew over Angkor Wat and other temples. The view from above is absolutely amazing!!

We booked the tour directly with Helicopter Cambodia : http://www.helicopterscambodia.com/

Thanks for the info, villefranche. How long was your helicopter tour and did that seem like a good duration?

Thanks,

Hi Carrie,

I did the scenic flight and was in the air for a good 15minutes..enough time (for me) to appreciate the capital city of the Khmer Empire and its layout. The helicopter pilot was great, a good commentator and had knowledge of the area.

Cheers

I did the 20 minute tour and it was awesome - we flew all over the temples and over Tonle Sap - truly memorable!

Great information for my upcoming trip, thanks! what are the "photo opportunities" on the flight i.e. do you get to take photos through glass or otherwise?

thanks,

Hi Joe,

There is a minimum of 3 passengers per flight with Helicopter Cambodia; 2 of us sat in back and 1 up front on the left seat – this seat has a small opening for a camera lens.

Here is more information:

When is your trip to Cambodia?

Steph, I am glad you did enjoy the Helicopter tour :)

10. Re: helicopter tour

we used Sokha Helicopters b/c they had a min of 2 passengers.

I was able to sit right up front and my husband sat in the back - I took the pictures but he had a great view and a great time.

We had the hotel book the flight for us though they have a website as well.

It was a true highlight!
