Full Itinerary

On Mandalay flights you will have the unique opportunity to see this expanding city from a totally different perspective, and experience the busy life on the streets. With monks walking in long lines, barefoot on their morning alms round, people flocking to the central market to buy their groceries, and the river bank’s busy life where herds of water buffalo bathe in the stream and riverboats of all shapes and sizes load up their goods and passengers, there is never a minute when life stands still in Mandalay. Our balloons provide the best filming and photographic platform for capturing the pulsating life of this city and to appreciate that Mandalay is one of Myanmar’s most rapidly developing towns.

Equally as famous as Mandalay hill and on the front cover of most guide books to Myanmar is the U Bein Bridge near Amarapura. This is the world’s longest teak footbridge, gently curving 1,300 yards over the Taungthaman lake. Winds permitting, your pilot can navigate the balloon low over the lake, creating mesmerizing views and reflections on the calm surface before bringing you back to land nearby.
