Ballooning Over Bagan

Myanmar

An absolute bucket-list must do. Combine the astounding picture-perfect temples and ruins of Bagan with a dazzling hot air balloon ride. It may be an early start, but we can assure you it’s worth it.

You’ll take off in time to watch the blazing yellow sun emerge over the plains, seeing it mesmerisingly illuminate the thousands of stupas and complexes. As the delicate mist begins to clear, and you look down upon the hundreds of stupas, a land that feels almost forgotten and completely undisturbed is revealed. The balloons that scatter the skies add bursts of colour to the already mesmerising view.

Your pilot will point out famous sites amid the glorious panoramic views, before a picnic breakfast back down on the ground. There’s simply no better way to appreciate the sheer scale and beauty of Bagan’s breathtaking temples and pagodas.
