Hot Air Balloon at Ngapali,
Myanmar, Ngapali Beach
Info : Hot Air Balloon at Ngapali
Myanmar’s wonderful western coastline is best seen from every angle possible, and a hot air balloon flight in this part of the world will leave an indelible impression. Ngapali has some of the world’s most breathtaking scenery: the Bay of Bengal’s unspoiled coastline dotted with ambitious fishermen, rolling hills, lush jungle paradise, traditional villages, gilded temples, and the mighty Kissapanadi River that meanders through quaint old Thandwe, Ngapali’s colonial town. As you float gently back towards the earth, you might be lucky enough to spot some rare and beautiful bird and butterfly species or even wave to villagers selling their handicrafts at the vibrant local markets.
My favourite [guide] was Aung in Mandalay. We only had him for one day, but he was determined to show us as much of Mandalay as possible in the time allotted, was obviously very proud of his city and country and was a pleasure to be with. He even took us to meet his uncle who was the Abbott of one of the many monasteries.
