It may have been just a bad day for the company, but this was definitely not a pleasant experience. It was a private flight, the flight itself was O.K., nothing much to see, but, for unknown and unexplained reasons, the pilot decided to land the balloon somewhere on the edge of a marsh! As it was obvious that we could not get out of the basket, a few more shots of hot air were then sent into the balloon plus some guys on the ground pooling us with some ropes and we inched to solid ground. After that, nothing...... We had to wait there, in the middle of nowhere, for longer than the flight itself, perhaps an hour or more, until the crew came. We had to wait until the basket was loaded on a truck and only then we got in a car that drove for quite a while until we got back to base ... Why did we have to land there, why there was no coordination with the ground crew and why did we have to wait so long?! I've been on balloon flights before, once in Bagan and twice in Sossuswlei, but this was nothing like those flights - very far from it... It was simply not a pleasant experience ...

Me and my wife were always looking for this adventure and had plan to do it in Turkey. However, ever since we know this can also be done in Chiang Mai, we kept in our list for this Thailand trip. We have done this with Balloon Adventure Thailand and they are the first started this balloon ride under the thai aviation license. I contact with Peach and she is so helpful that you cant imagine. Very prompt and helpful. My daughters were scared to stay back alone in the hotel. So we took them with us and they nicely stayed with them. The van picked up from hotel by 5.45 and its around 20/25 mins drive to Balloon Clubhouse at Horizon village and resort. They offered free refreshments like juice, cake, tea/coffee, sandwiches and biscuit. After a short brief by peach of do’s and don’ts, soon we started the journey with a professional pilot. We were around 2000M up from the ground. The view was magnificent and the silence was peaceful. We tried to release our stress up there! The going up was very smooth but landing gave us bit trouble due to the wind direction. But our pilot is very experienced that we had a very good landing in a filed, but far from main road. But crews reach there before we land and make ways to take the basket near to the road. This professionalism just amazed me. Later we celebrated our flight with drinks. And got our certificate. This completes our bucket list as well. You can keep this baloon ride in your must do thing. Here is the contact of Peach: +66 89 685 1188.

First time to see the sunrise in the balloon, a little bit fear at the beginning balloon take off, no matter what, all worth it. The staff is nice, send the driver to pick us up from the hotel in the morning and send back, the breakfast is good the whole experience is amazing

The early morning balloon ride itself provided a nice view and it was well organised. The scenery is pleasant to watch, but it does not change much during the one hour flight over the flat area of land east of Chiang Mai. What I did not like was the complete inflexibility on the pricing. When paying such a premium price, I would expect a better and more personal level of customer service. What happened? There was an offer in the Bangkok post with a package of an overnight stay at the hotel where the balloons take off from, including breakfast and of course the balloon ride. All for THB 8000. We already had accomodation elsewhere in Chiang Mai, which included breakfast, so we only needed the balloon ride, which I expected to cost less than the package. Unfortunately, neither calling nor writing did any good. It was a simple matter of: "Take it, or leave it", which meant we had to pay the regular price of THB 8800 per person, just for the balloon ride. I did not want to risk loosing the reservation by making a booking for the complete package and then only showing up the next morning for the balloon ride, so I paid. - But I'm reluctant to recommend this company under these circumstances.
