Personal highlights

  1. Balloon over Bagan: a one-hour sunrise trip over Bagan
  2. Hot Air Balloon: a unique experience, slowly hovering around
  3. Sunrise: not as mystic (no fog) as expected but still very impressive
  4. Landing: very smooth on the other side of Bagan, no falling over
  5. My trip: my first balloon ride, a bit expensive but totally worth it
