Bagan by Hot Air Balloon – Myanmar

The Bagan hot air balloon is a lifetime experience, its scenery is one of the most iconic images of Myanmar. The massive valley, comprehending over 3,000 temples, it is only possible to be fully witnessed and enjoyed from one of these balloons up in the sky.

Floating in the air over the magic Bagan that has inspired visitor for centuries is exciting only to imagine. When doing it the thousand-year-old pagodas and the mighty Ayeyarwaddy River will be your companions as the sun rises slowly from the horizon over the misty fields and temples.

The ballooning season is short in Bagan, typically running from mid-October through mid-March, when the winds are calmer and the air is cooler. The majority of flights are at sunrise, meaning that you are going to have to be up bright and early to be picked up by the operators. From your hotel, you will be transferred to the launch site, listen to a briefing session then set off on a spectacular flight. Once landed, a glass of champagne and light snacks will be waiting for you before the transfer back to your hotel. The flight duration is approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour, depending on wind and air currents and other factors. The hot air ballooning is becoming extremely popular these days, with up to 20 balloons taking off every morning. So we suggest you book early to avoid disappointment, especially for the highest season (around Christmas and New Year) we recommend that you book a month in advance, if not more.

The Bagan hot air balloon ride is not a budget-friendly experience, but most people consider it a once in a lifetime opportunity. So if you are in Myanmar in the right season, it’s certainly something worth considering noting down in your bucket list.
