There are a lot of adventurous people in this world who enjoy every kind of journey that can make them overtook their fears and activate curiosity in the first place. And this is the reason many travellers prefer to go to Bagan and enjoy such a unique experience here above the whole city. For many people, the most popular activity from there, which is known also as balloons over Bagan can be considered a dream came true because there are not so many places in this world like this.
This city was once the capital of the Pagan Kindom and there can be found over 4000 buddist temples and pagodas which are located in the proximity of it. As there is now a business made from this experience there are a lot of services for tourists so they can be stress free in their adventurous journey and have the possibility to enjoy the first moment out there. This is why, depending on the hour of the appointment for the balloon flight, there will come a mini-bus in front of your accommodation to take you and give a ride to the place where the flight will start.
Local people in that city are very kind and hospitable and usually they are waiting there with a table with coffee, hot tea, biscuits and other traditional food in order to have a small snack before the balloon journey while the pilot is preparing it.
Before going up on the balloon he is going to explain to everyone the rules you need to keep for their safety and this is when he is going to tell the three parts of the journey, the take-off, mid-flight and the landing. Right after he assures everyone understood the rules, the take-off can start. That is the moment where the dream starts.
Nothing compares to the experience of seeing you are above all these temples in a basket and having the feeling of flying like this for the first time. The view is wonderful and for sure is something no one can see again very soon, this is why you have to enjoy every moment while you are up there.
