Bagan Hot Air Balloon Tour
Take a once in a lifetime ride up into the sky: Hop on a hot air balloon and witness the breathtaking panoramic view of Bagan, Myanmar!
Your tour will commence with a complimentary pick-up at your respective local hotel before sunrise, and you will be comfortably transported to the hot air balloon launch site in less than 30 minutes. Upon arrival, you will be served some light breakfast as the balloon is inflated. Pay attention while you eat though—you will also be briefed on all the safety precautions as well as the corresponding flight instructions to note.
Board the hot air balloon when it is fully inflated and get ready to soar and be amidst the clouds! Let the cool breeze and stunning aerial views of Bagan take your breath away as you embark on a flight several thousand feet above ground, boasting 360-degree perspectives. As the ballon drifts with the wind and cruises the sky, listen to the pilot’s explanations about the fascinating history behind ballooning and observe some key landmarks pointed out, especially the striking pagodas that dot the landscape.
Capture all these priceless moments using your camera and share them with your loved ones back home. After about 35 to 60 minutes, land safely back at the launch site and receive your flight certificate from your pilot.
Finally, enjoy some champagne to mark this celebratory moment!
