WOUAH! This is really a must do in Bagan! The experience is truly extraordinary from start to finish. The organisation is flawless. The security check is very well explained and rehearsed with all the participants so that we feel completely at ease during the flight and for landing. Even though the price could seem expensive it is really worth every... More

Volare in mongolfiera sopra l'area archeologica di Bagan è come essere un uccello libero nel cielo. Dalla mongolfiera in volo si può capire realmente la grandezza di Bagan. È consigliato a tutti anche per coloro che soffrono l'altitudine. Piloti molto preparati. Ballooning over the archaeological site of Bagan's like to be a free bird in the sky. From hot air... More

My husband and I had a fantastic experience with Baloons over Bagan! They were wonderfully organized, helpful and kind! Being in the balloon for sunrise was magical!! The champagne and fruit (and delicious banana bread) at the landing was the cherry on top!! FANTASTIC!

Yes, you should do this and you'll need to book it well in advance as they fill up quickly. I'm afraid of heights but had no issues whatsoever in my first hot air ballon ride ever. They do a very professional job here with experienced pilots and we were well taken care off the whole time. Doing sunrise over the... More

My husband convinced me to do it. I am so glad that I listened to him. Shaun, our pilot, was so reassuring and I felt so safe. The views were amazing and worth every cent that we paid. I will never forget the experience.

Superbly and professionally organised from start to finish. Imagine 20 balloons all taking to the air at the same time as the sun peeks over the horizon. Stunning views. Amazing experience. Enjoy the post flight champagne and croissants

We booked this in the UK as we wanted this trip on Valentine's Day. We were picked up from our hotel in a pre war bus. The crew were very professional and organised with lots of photo opportunities. Can be quite cold that early in the morning so you need a coat.

Just got out of the balloon. Robert our captain did an excellent job taking control of the air and gave us a guided tour of the area. You can tell that he loves Bagan and its people. We got to see pretty much all 2500 temples in the sky and the balloon itself was quite an experience. Thank you!
