Old Bagan, Myanmar (Burma)

Balloon Over the Temples of Bagan

Originally added by Joseph Gulizia

Ever dream of taking a ride in the hot air balloon? Why not do it for sunrise over the ancient temples of Bagan?

At your hotel or hostel book a tour with one of the many ballooning companies. They will pick you up for sunrise, for one of the most memorable views of your life.

The whole process is easy. You hop on an old school bus to where they are launching the hot air balloons that morning. Your captain will go through a short safety demonstration. Then you are off. Make sure your camera battery is charged, as you will see the valley of more than 2000 temples below. 360 degree views offer spectacular photo opportunities, and a view you won't find anywhere else in the world.
