Oriental Ballooning

Take to the skies of Myanmar in our small, exclusive balloons and experience the true flavour of this astonishing country from a different perspective! Feel at ease in our traditional wicker basket compartments, which you will share with only one or two other people.

During our bespoke flights, your professional and knowledgeable pilot will open up a new horizon of tales and discoveries before you. Drifting on the gentle breeze, fly low over villages to hear local people greeting you with waving hands and a friendly ‘Mingalabar’. Climbing high, you can take in the 360 degree panoramic view of the entire region. The Oriental Ballooning team would like to make your visit truly memorable by taking you into the skies on one of our exclusive balloon rides. Enjoy a viewpoint that no other form of transport can offer. Our UK commercially licensed pilots are skilled at giving you the experience of a lifetime.

As you eventually drift back to earth, you will be greeted by our dedicated crew, and can celebrate your flight with a glass of chilled sparkling wine, in true aeronautical tradition. Please accept, with our compliments, your own Oriental Ballooning cap and personally-signed flight certificate before we return you to your hotel or guest house.
