Sunrise floating over the Bagan temples is priceless. Experience of a lifetime. Do it! Had a great experience with this company. Enjoy!

We did this balloon flight in early December with the 'classic service' i.e. 16 persons to a balloon. This trip is very expensive trip for barely an hour in the air, as expensive as flights in Australia, a country where one would imagine the cost structure is higher than in Myanmar. But it had been on our 'bucket list' for... More

The trip was very well organised, with a friendly, informative pilot. Morning flights tend to be better than evening ones. Do shop around though - Balloons over Bagan have balloons for 16 people, whereas others have smaller numbers per balloon, which I think would be nicer.

Even though we had to wake up very early in the morning to catch the old bus ride to the take off area, Balloons over Bagan is a very fun way to see Bagan. You can see one of the most beautiful sunrises on the planet, and you can enjoy the wonderful view from the air. The scenery from the... More

I really had many doubts due to the high cost. I then researched other balloon rides around the world and it actually quite fairly priced. Many that have not done this may imagine that once you're up there for 5 mins the novelty wears off ... this is absolutely not the case as I was still grinning all day. But... More

Up at ridiculous o'clock for our sunrise flight on Christmas Eve I am so glad we made the effort. This was the absolute highlight of our visit to Bagan particularly the copious amounts of champagne when we landed. A beautiful tranquil flight that takes your breath away. Thanks to pilot Mike for being an excellent informative host.

Balloons over Bagan is simply one of the most extraordinary experiences once can have. My only recommendation is to book as far in advance as possible! I unfortunately fainted half way in while in the balloon as I hadn't been well the night prior. The captain, Milton, and his team handled it extremely well. We made a smooth emergency landing...

This was a brilliant experience on all levels. I'm not one for heights but this did not bother me at all. The day we went up another 12 balloons were in the air. The view of the temples from overhead was magnificent. This is an experience not to be missed. Afterwards you can buy a USB with generic photos as... More

It is always worth to pay for this experience. though we woke up early but thoroughly enjoyed the flight. The sunrise is amazing! All the instruction for a good flight was carefully made, good food for the welcoming steps and good chamoagne for the landing also

What an absolutely amazing experience this was. My eldest son and myself decided to spend a few days in Myanmar for some warmth, he lives in Beijing and I live in Oxford now, both cold at the moment. We started at Mandalay for a day and then on to Bagan for 3 days. One of the trips we decided to... More
