Hot Air Balloon over Mandalay , Mandalay Myanmar, 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.

We enjoyed a 3 week trip exploring both the well known places as well as the less developed areas. We also balanced the trip with a variety of walks and activities as well as time for several half day breaks to relax. The Myanmar people are incredibly friendly and welcoming. The colours of the country are outstanding, wonderful dusty landscapes with rice fields and palm trees as well as so many amazing pagodas rich in colour and symbolism. Our best parts were the less well known places but Lake Inle and Bagan are must do places and are still not overrun by tourists. Experience Travel Group tailored a trip for our needs and knew how to do so and suggest appropriate hotels and means of travel.
