For a much more adventurous experience in Bagan, besides exploring more than 4000 temples of this plain, there is no choice better than balloon over Bagan. Joining in this amazing tour, you will definitely observe the beautiful life of Burmese locals as well as admire these magnificent sceneries.
Before sunrise, you will depart the hotel and transfer to the departure point (depending on wind). While enjoying a cup of coffee/tea and having a croissant, you can observe the way the crew inflates the balloons. Before taking off for a 45 minutes to 1-hour flight, you will have a thorough safety briefing. Upon landing, before a transfer back to your hotel, they will retrieve vehicles and serve you sparkling wine together with refreshments. It normally takes between 2h30 and 3h for the whole excursion door to door.
Although also being available on request, flights in the afternoon are more prone to cancellations due to weather conditions.
A VIP service is available for an extra touch. This option is only available for 8 people per day. You will be escorted to an adjacent launch site exclusive for the VIP balloon once arriving. As it is being prepared for inflation, your pilot will give you an up-close tour of the balloon. After landing, each VIP will be given a complimentary CD-Rom of the flight.
NOTE: Due to weather conditions, Balloons over Bagan only operates from late October to mid-March
