Hot Air Balloon over Mandalay ,
Info : Hot Air Balloon over Mandalay
Mandalay offers a stunning landscape to visitors: rivers, mountains, striking golden temples atop rolling hills, quaint colonial hill towns and tranquil lakes. At the heart of it all, Upper Myanmar’s glorious cultural and political capital city is home to more than one million people. See everything Mandalay has to offer floating gracefully above the earth on this one-hour hot air balloon flight.
After a tea, coffee and pastry break, you’ll begin your flight at a launch site that makes the most of an intriguing vantage point over the city with its colourful people and glittering temples. Glance north towards the hills and see the famous U Bein Bridge to the south with its charactertistic teak poles, its surface teeming with fishermen and villagers on their daily commute. Weather permitting, your balloon pilot can descend and hover close to the lake’s surface.
Our guide told us the stories behind things, rather than reeling of facts and figures. She brought Inle Lake and the surrounding cultures to life for us. And on the last day she organised a free late check out for us which I really appreciated. We felt she had really done her homework on us and also on all the places we visited.
