Helicopter Flight

Helistar Cambodia offers scenic helicopter tours of the temples beginning at US$90/person for an 8 minute jaunt around Angkor Wat. It is not a particularly cheap way to tour but the view is spectacular and memorable. Also on offer are specialized tours, aerial photography and charter services. Multiple aircraft in service. Walk-in customers welcome.  

Microlight Flight

A cheaper and more exciting way to the see the temples by air is via microlight. SkyVenture offers scenic microlight tours of the temples beginning at $45 for an 15 minute flight. For $100 you can do their 45 minute Temple Tour. They can arrange for a tuk tuk return trip to their private airstrip from city for $6.

Massage

Several Khmer massage parlours can be found in Siem Reap. These are generally genuine massage parlours and not a front for sexual services. The Khmers believe that the Thai massage is derived from Khmer massage which is just as relaxing (and requires less twisting and turning).

Visit an Orphanage

Think carefully before visiting an orphanage. Is the orphanage sustainable, does it protect children's safety, and are you actually making a contribution (e.g. monetary or in-kind, IF you have checked what the orphanage actually needs). It costs an orphanage time and therefore money (staff hours) to show tourists around. Make sure your visit is a worthwhile one and if you're not sure if it is, think hard before visiting. A charity run by expats, CHOICE would be able to advise on which are the most well run orphanages to visit.

  • The Sangkheum Center for Children.
  • ACODO Orphanage.

We Are The Champions Performances by the Local Disabled Community

A two act play written and performed by participants who share with great feeling what it is like to be disabled in Cambodia and the challenges and vision of their lives. As many of the performers are in pursuit of education to better their lives they appreciate donations of school materials such pens and writing books.
