Dawn balloon flight over Bagan

The team will pick you up from your hotel and take you over to the landing site early this morning to make the best use of the cooler and calmer air. Pick-up time is normally around 5.30-6am.

Once briefed, you will board the basket and take to the air floating over Bagan's pagodas on a flight lasting just under an hour. Although dictated by the wind, you will usually land by the banks of the Ayeyarwady River where you enjoy a light snack and celebratory glass of wine or champagne.
