Booked this 2 days in advance after witnessing the balloons go up that morning. It was an expense we were not expecting to make but we do not regret it for one moment. This was on my bucket list since I was a child and I cried with excitement. Our pilot (from Canada) was absolutely amazing and knowledgeable and I couldn't have asked for a better trip. We also got free hats. Thank you guys for a great trip

Hi Louise C Thank you for the 5* review of your balloon flight over the temples of Bagan with Golden Eagle Ballooning. It's good to know that during these difficult times for the world as a whole that the balloon flight is reminding people of great and fun times! Our multinational and multilingual pilots know that their knowledge and participation makes such a big difference to our guests experience, so it's good to know that your Canadian pilot (J.P? Jason?) made your flight so good! Best wishes, Golden Eagle Ballooning Bagan, Myanmar

Do this. If you're in Bagan or you've been there before, have wandered the temples and pagodas of the zone and been astounded as we were at the sheer number and brilliance of them, be further blown away floating above them at sunrise and into the early morning. We flew with Nick who was an absolute wealth of knowledge on Bagan as well as ballooning in general. No picture you will see online can do this experience justice, the price WELL reflects the magnificence of this experience. Taking a sunrise hot air balloon flight, especially with the fantastic team flying Golden Eagle, is an unmissable experience and I truly cannot recommend it enough.

Hello Bill, I wanted to thank you and your entire team for the great balloon flight on March 18th, 2020. It was simply fascinating ... I wish with all my heart that we will soon have overcome the CORONA time, that we have ALL learned from it and that I can soon return to Myanmar! How are you at the moment, are you still in bagan? All the best and especially health Claus from the Djoser troop

Hi Claus. Many thanks for your 5* review! It was a pleasure to fly you and the Djoser troop over Bagan's amazing temples. Our crew remain in Bagan and all are well. Our pilots have all returned to their home countries, and from what information we have we believe everyone is well. That leaves us to hope that Golden Eagle Ballooning will be flying over Bagan again this winter, hopefully from early October! Thank you for your kind words. I will pm you soon. Best wishes, Golden Eagle Ballooning Bagan, Myanmar

Yes it does seem a little expensive, but it is worth every dollar. Yes you do have to get up early, but the memories you will harvest are so worth it. You are probably only going to visit Bagan once, so invest in making it the best memory you can. Thanks to or pilot Bill, we had an absolutely amazing trip, and his skills made it last as long as was feasible, it was an utterly stunning morning and I cannot recommend it highly enough.
