Oriental Ballooning

USD 420

The only operator with flights in 4 cities (Bagan, Mandalay, Inle Lake and Ngapali), while the rest operate only in Bagan.


Fly over the astonishing beauty of Myanmar in smaller, more exclusive hot air balloons with Oriental Ballooning. You are bound to have a more exclusive ride as you share the experience with a fewer number of people. Our traditional wicker basket compartments are only shared with only one to two other people which will truly allow you to indulge in the experience with exclusivity.

Your once in a lifetime journey starts with our private vehicle picking you up from your hotel early in the morning. As you reach the dedicated location point, you will be served with light, pre-flight breakfast while you watch your balloon being prepared.  You will be taking your light breakfast in an area with a beautiful view so you can relax and enjoy the grandiose scenery as you wait for your flight.

You will go through Safety Briefing with our highly-trained, professional pilot to guide you on the most important details you should consider during the flight. After the Safety Briefing, you should be able to carry on with your flight. The hot air balloon ride goes for 45 minutes to 1 hour. You can fully enjoy a more intimate and interactive experience as you fly along with only four (4) to eight (8) passengers.

Upon landing, you will be served with fresh fruits and sparkling wine to luxuriously wrap up your memorable experience. You will also receive an official flight certification to mark this one-of-a-kind experience. After the celebration, you will be sent back to your hotel.
