Ballooning Over Bagan
This add-on can be added to our Meet Me in Myanmar, Best of Myanmar, and Best of Myanmar & Beach tours between 1 Oct - 31 Mar.
Take to the skies for a spectacular aerial of Bagan's remarkable landscape, as you soar over hundreds of ancient stupas and temples on a majestic hot air ballooning adventure.
Starting the day early, you will be whisked away with a transfer from your hotel to the launch area, where some freshly brewed tea and coffee awaits for you to enjoy during a safety briefing by your licensed pilot.
As the sun rises and your balloon is inflated, climb onboard the wicker basket, and before you know it, you are floating off wherever the wind may take you, on an unforgettable journey that will take your breath away! Dependent upon wind conditions, the pilot can ‘turn’ the balloon using ‘rotation venting’ to achieve magical aerial views sure to provide memories for a lifetime. After disembarking, in aeronautical tradition, enjoy a chilled flute of sparkling wine before being transferred back to your hotel to continue with your day's sightseeing.
