Our day will begin with a very early pick-up from our hotels in romantic vintage buses. Upon arrival to the location, snacks, coffee, and tea will be waiting for us. As you enjoy the refreshments, you will be able to witness the preparation process of the balloons being inflated. This is followed by a safety briefing and then, at dawn, it is time for take off!
The balloons are piloted at no more than 15mph by skilled professionals with years of experience, who also enjoy narrating the speed/direction strategies of steering the balloon if you are interested. The experience provides an ever-changing perspective of the immense archeological site and the beauty of Bagan that you won’t be able to see any other way. Please note that due to the limited space in the basket, there are weight, age, and height requirements*. After a graceful landing of the balloons, staff will be waiting for you with fresh pastries, fruits, and a glass or two of sparkling wine to conclude this excursion with a celebration of your flight.
We'll be back at our hotels in time for breakfast, and it is possible to join the Mount Popa excursion that leaves shortly after.
