The Myanmar Ballooning Company recently announced that it will open balloon rides over the scenic Inlay Lake in Shan State next season.
“There are many people who want to ride hot air balloons in Bagan. The tourism season for this year ends in March so hot air balloon rides in Inlay will start in the coming tourism season. We now accept booking,” said Ni Ni Khine, an operation officer for Myanmar Ballooning.
Hot air balloon rides are already popular in Bagan and Mandalay. Test runs were made at Inlay Lake last year. Balloon rides cost US$ 30 per person but may vary depending on the location.
“Americans mainly enjoy riding hot air balloons. Some tourists left without riding the hot air balloons because they no longer can wait their turn for riding,” said tourist guide Sai Won Sone.
