Ziplining isn't something I've tried yet so I'd better get my arse up to Siem Reap and get my fill of the new zipline course through the forest that surrounds the Angkor temples. They opened a couple of months ago but the full course of ten ziplines, tree-houses, sky-bridges, an abseil to finish and some actual gibbons in-situ, have just been unveiled. Its costs $99 per person (cheaper if you are Khmer or a resident expat) for a 2+ hour experience and you get fed as well. The full course includes the longest zipline of some 300 metres, and you are 50 metres off the ground. Not for the faint-hearted, but they take safety very seriously so enjoy it with confidence. If I can manage a microlite flight then ziplining should be a piece of cake, shouldn't it?
