Tourists can now take flight over the southern coastal towns of Phan Thiet and Mui Ne, just a few hours from Ho Chi Minh City. The area is known for its beaches, sand dunes, kiteboarding and dragonfruit. Now thrillseekers can see it all from the air from US$136 per person for a four-hour adventure.
The balloons lift off at 5am daily either from the centre of Phan Thiet city, or close to the famous sand dunes nearby, depending on wind conditions. The price includes transport to and from your hotel, a light breakfast after landing, champagne and a certificate designating you as a hot air balloon flyer.
Vietnam Balloons also caters for special occasions like birthday parties in the air, weddings in the clouds and corporate events.
