Celebrating 20 years of operations, ‘Balloons over Bagan’ has launched a new destination from which to enjoy the beauty of Myanmar from up above. Now visitors to the Golden Land can soar over the rolling hills with ‘Balloons over Loikaw’.
Loikaw is the capital of Kayah State, one of the least visited but more picturesque places we’ve found in Burma (Myanmar). The state is home to mountain-top pagodas, volcanic lakes, mysterious caves and a vast array of ethnic groups. A dedicated balloon team will pick up your clients at their hotel in the early morning (5 am), and transfer to the launch site. Pre-flight drinks such as coffee and tea are served while the crew prepares the balloon. The pilot then provides a full safety briefing and after sunrise, the balloon will soar up into the sky for a sensational ride lasting 45 mins to 1 hour. After landing, you will be served by the team with sparkling wine and fresh fruit. For those with clients on the ground now who might be interested in booking a balloon ride, please get in touch with our team in Myanmar to request a flight time. Each balloon can carry up to 8 passengers.
