Nature of Ballooning
In the pretty early morning ( around 4 or 5 AM ), the bus from the balloon company will pick you up at the hotel to the starting point for riding the balloon. There, you can see the pilot and his team are inflating the balloon. Before flying, you need to listen to the experienced pilot’s important safety briefing. It takes about an hour, flying over the thousand ancient pagodas. You can see the breathtaking panoramic view of the whole compound fully filled with pagodas. Before the sun rises, you will see spectacular foggy scenery with plants and pagodas when you look down from the balloon. It is really impressive and attractive. Watching the sun rises by riding the balloon will leave unforgettable moments for you. Before taking off the balloon, with enjoying the sunrise, you will be served with light breakfast. After landing, you can also take part in Champagne Celebration and receive a personalized flight certificate signed by the pilot as your life experience. You will also get the complimentary inflight photos (even exclusive memory stick with inflight photos and video in some companies). After that, you will be transferred to the hotel.
The services will vary depending on your choice of company and on your choice of balloon type. If you like to ride, you can book online or in person.
