Balloons over Bagan

Anawrahta Road, Republic of the Union of Myanmar

See Website

Owned by an Australian-Burmese couple, this venerable company offers the stunning 45-minute balloon rides across the temples of Old Bagan. Their safety record is impeccable, due to the fact that they only fly when the weather conditions are perfect. If you have a chance to partake, it’s one of the most memorable experiences in this part of the world. The company employs a host of locals and is involved in a number of community projects. Reserve for the first day of your Bagan stay; that way if the weather doesn’t play along, you have a few more opportunities to make it up into the sky.
