Hot air balloon over Mandalay
starting from $290
There’s no better way to see Mandalay than flying over it in a hot air balloon! You will discover this historic region’s hidden sights and treasures which can only be seen from the elegant luxury of a balloon basket.
You should be ready and waiting in front of the hotel at 5.00 a.m. A van or vintage bus will transfer you to the launch site. Before the balloon flight, there will be cookies, tea and coffee, followed by a quick safety briefing.
During the flight, you will have the unique opportunity to see this expanding city from a totally different perspective and experience the busy street life. Life never stands still in Mandalay – there are monks walking around barefoot in long lines during their morning round of alms, people flocking to the central market to buy their groceries, and the riverbank’s busy life where herds of water buffalo bathe in the stream, not to mention riverboats of all shapes and sizes loading up their goods and passengers. A trip in a hot air balloon provides the best filming and photographic platform for capturing this city’s pulsating life. Equally as famous as the Mandalay Hill is the U Bein Bridge near Amarapura. It is the world’s longest teak footbridge, gently curving 1,300 yards over the Taungthaman Lake. Winds permitting, your pilot can navigate the balloon low over the lake, showing you with mesmerising views and reflections on the calm surface before bringing you back to land nearby. After the balloon lands, a small buffet of different kinds of fruits and a glass of sparkling wine will be waiting for you. You’ll be dropped off at your hotel between 9.00 and 9.30 a.m.
