Booking unforgettable private chartered helicopter flights in the Kingdom of Cambodia has never been easier. With a range of top of the line helicopters such as the Bell 505 and Airbus H125, we look at some of the best helicopter experiences in Cambodia in 2021.
Cambodia Helicopter Charters
Charter flights in Cambodia are available with Yugo, which has expanded its packages to include some of the most important cities in the Southeast Asian nation.
There are also options to fly to the beautiful southern coast off the Gulf of Thailand and to its postcard-perfect tropical islands, some of which are private but can be booked. Finally, magical scenic flights over the famed UNESCO-listed world heritage site of the Angkor Archaeological Park in Siem Reap is an unbelievable experience.
Unlike mainstream commercial transportation, private helicopters have a much smaller passenger capacity and provide better ventilation facilities, making them a top choice for those who travel during the pandemic.
Reaching destinations via private helicopter charters are also an exclusive experience offering flexibility and luxury - with reclining swivel chairs and top-quality audio systems for the ultimate sightseeing and travel comfort.
Helicopters also get you closer to your destination such as the islands, more quickly, and provide the best possible views!

Scenic Helicopter Flight Over Angkor Wat
Siem Reap, temple town as it’s sometimes known, is less built up than the capital, but flights head over the beautiful and vast Tonle Sap Lake and take in the wide natural expanses of the north of the country.
The highlights, of course, are the unparalleled views of the majestic temples scattered across a huge area (400 square km.) over what was the mighty Khmer Kingdom in a previous age. From historical and iconic temples and moats - view the outline of one of the world's great ancient cities and civilizations as well as soaring over the jungle canopies.
This is one of the most beautiful and famous cultural sites on the planet. The area is a national treasure and the most popular sightseeing attraction in the Kingdom; the Angkor temple features on the national flag of Cambodia, the only national flag in the world to feature a man-made building!
With charter options including a three-hour exclusive flight experience departing Phnom Penh, you head over the previous capital of Oudong and the Phnom Aural Wildlife Sanctuary, before reaching Siem Reap and the Tonle Sap Lake.
The helicopter’s air-conditioned cabin offers maximum comfort, while the photogenic panoramic and intimate views are unmatched from the skies, with rare vantage points over the pristine Prasat Beng Mealea and Banteay Srei Temples.
