Experience riding a British Aerospace certified hot air balloon as it flies over Bagan in Myanmar during sunrise. Bagan is known also as the Bagan Archaeological Zone and a temple town in the Southeast Asian country.

You will be fetched from the hotel or guest house early morning onboard an antique bus--which adds more authenticity to the experience. Take it all in as it is not everyday you will experience this kind of activity for 45 minutes to one hour (can be extended depending on the wind conditions). Have a light pre-flight coffee, tea, and other refreshments before departing for this tour up in the skies. You will be given a safety briefing by the pilot before starting the activity. Between 12 to 16 people are allowed per hot air balloon ride.

See the Ananda Temple, a Buddhist temple built in 1105 AD during the reign of King Kyanzittha from the Pagan Dynasty. Witness passing by the Irrawaddy River, also known as the Ayeyarwady River, the country's largest river and most important commercial waterway; which flows from north to south.

    Had a great time flying over Bagan and enjoying the magnificent views of the temples from the hot air balloon. I’ve explored the temples by electric bicycle, but this is the only way to really appreciate the sheer size and magnitude of the temples in Bagan. Definitely a must try for those who can afford it. The company was very professional and safety standards are high. The champagne and light picnic of fresh fruits and pastries was a very nice touch as well. Not to forget the very cool vintage Chevrolet CMP busses that ferried us around!
    The only suggestion is for the company to include a copy of the photos (US$15) with the package!
