Here's a fun idea for your Thailand vacation: a hot air balloon ride over the picturesque landscape of Northern Thailand. Bear in mind: the number of spots available for these flights are very limited, so book your trip well in advance to ensure you don't miss this fantastic opportunity!
Thanks to this great attraction, Chiang Mai is the ideal place to indulge in a day of extravagance, beginning with a hot air balloon ride at sunrise and ending with a spa massage in a tropical garden.
You'll lift off over Chiang Mai's picturesque countryside of forests and rice paddies, then land to a Champagne toast and delicious breakfast buffet. After that, it's off to a spa in ancient Chiang Mai (Fah Lanna Spa) for an assessment, a massage (two hours, Thai + foot massage), and lunch in the facility's restaurant.
The company will accept only groups of 12 to maintain a high level of individual attention. The minimum age for children is ten, and an adult must accompany them.
This adventure is not recommended for pregnant women, people with back, knee, heart, or other severe medical conditions.
Regarding dietary requirements, options for vegans and vegetarians are available upon request. Please advise the company at the time of booking.
Hotel pickup at 5:30 AM is included (within Chiang Mai) and an Old City Branch Transfer in an air-conditioned van from the Balloon activity to the spa.
There is an extra fee and a different pickup time if your hotel is located outside the city centre. We will let you know the details according to the information you give us when you make your reservation.
You will be responsible for paying and arranging transportation back to your hotel from the Fah Lanna Spa in the Old City. However, we can help you book a Taxi too if you wish.
There are no refunds or exchanges for this experience. It depends on good weather, though. Conditions of calm breezes, an overcast sky, and no precipitation are required for flight. Flights can only take off when there is a minimum of four kilometres of visible terrain. If the weather doesn't permit, you can reschedule your tour for another day or get a full refund.
Hot air ballooning does not require any specialized attire. However, you should choose clothes per the ground temperatures and comfortability. We recommend that you dress practically, with long pants, a light jacket, sunglasses and a hat. Please refrain from wearing footwear that will cause trip hazards, such as sandals, flip-flops, and high heels.
Also, don't forget your binoculars and camera!
This company is highly rated if you don’t need all the extra luxury elements and just want to soar in a hot air balloon in Chiang Mai. It’s a 45-minute - one-hour sunrise flight. Breakfast with champagne afterwards is included and pickup from your hotel in the morning as well.
Every flight is one-of-a-kind. Your safety is always a priority for these skilled pilots. They consider wind speeds, direction, and other elements while taking you deep into the Chiang Rai countryside. The trip will be unlike anything you've ever experienced and, indeed, be the most memorable part of your visit to northern Thailand.
Transportation to and from your hotel is not included in the price. You must arrive at Singha Park by 6:00 AM for the sunrise flight (or Zone Zipline at 4:15 PM for a sunset flight). From here, the company will take you to the Launch SIte - usually about a 30-minute drive. The location can change depending on wind conditions.
After that, you'll spend 45 minutes floating above the beautiful Chiang Rai countryside in a basket. After your breathtaking 45-minute ride, you'll be taken back to where your exciting day began for breakfast, tea, coffee, or even champagne. If you started your adventure at Singha Park, you'd have been given a complimentary ticket. Singha Park is an Agro-tourism destination - a scenic park set in a farm-like environment with orchards, tea plantations, trails, adventure activities, a tram, and a restaurant. You can enjoy this location the rest of the day before returning to your hotel. And you most definitely should!
The cancellation policy, restrictions, and recommendations are similar to the Chaing Mai Balloon Trip. However, please inform yourself of the details when booking the flight.
