This balloon ride is a waste of precious holiday time and money. It is basically a 15 minute go up in the air and come down. There is no flying over the Hong Kong harbor as the brochure implies. I call it a " popsicle ride." It is not even good for photos as there are too many ropes in the way. I always thought of a balloon ride as free floating through the air without being attached to the ground via a cable. Unless you children, give this a miss!

It’s truly unique in that you get a birds eye view of Hong Kong, without being enclosed by a skyscraper’s glass and steel shell. The exposure to the elements certainly adds an excitement that you won’t get in an enclosed viewing gallery. You ascend very gently, as the ascent/descent is controlled by the winch, there are no jolts or jerks, you suddenly look down and you realise that you’re over 100 metres up in the air, and the only way you could tell how high up you were, was by looking at the shadow cast by the balloon on the ground. We were airborne for about 10 minutes in all, which was more than enough to take take in all the views, and pose for numerous photos, and it’s going to be 10 minutes that I’m going to remember for a very long time. For video and photo see the link here: http://winkypedia.net/2011/01/09/the-dhl-hong-kong-balloon/
