Putrajaya Hot Air Balloon Fiesta, Malaysia


Ever thinking of riding on a hot-air balloon flight? Now you can fulfill your dreams by buying a RM10 ticket during the annual event of Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta which is held every year around March or April.

It was the first ever Hot Air Balloon Fiesta in Putrajaya when I went there last year.
The atmosphere was crowded and hot, filled with laughters and happiness, couples, families, friends etc were seen everywhere at the normally deserted Putrajaya during weekdays.

Flying a hot air balloon is very dependent on the weather; whereby the wind has to be calm and the sky has to be clear. The weather forecast in March for Putrajaya was suitable for flying hot air balloons.

It was such an amazing experience to see the balloons, one by one, one after one, flew into the sky, across the lake, landed at the opposite bank of the lake safely.
