Once in a lifetime opportunity with a great company!
Debra_T, 27-03-2022
This is such a cool thing to do, you’ll never forget it. I’m a bit nervous about heights but it was such a smooth ride. All the staff are so friendly and they seem genuinely excited about working with hot air balloons.
Once in a lifetime flying experience over Chiang Mai.

The staff on the ground were attentive and enthusiastic. The balloon flight was stable, and the landing was smooth. The views were so amazing and breathtaking and we managed to catch the sunrise. After the flight we had a glass of champagne which was another great touch. This is may seem a bit pricey but well worth every dollar spent and big thanks for I Asia for changing the dates around 3 times for free! Highly recommended!
Highlight of our trip!

The ride was great, the pilot was very friendly, definitely a great experience. The ride itself blew our mind and this is a must do. A real once in a lifetime experience. Big thanks to I Asia who looked after our booking and was very prompt answering our questions.
Amazing first time hot air balloon experience!

Awesome Experience! Beautiful sunrise with the faraway mountains. You HAVE to give it a try while you are in Chiangmai.
Ours was a lady pilot, Amy who handled the ballooning very well and explained to us the scenic scenery around us and kept us informed of how high we were in the air. My husband and I enjoyed ourselves so much, not to mention the fun ceremony after the hot air balloon ride! Well worth every dollar.
Unforgettable Experience

We booked this while in lock down in Chiang Mai thinking this will not go ahead. A lovely lady Ms May emailed us saying this will go ahead and also thanking us for our booking. We arrived by van by our guide to a beautiful rice field. The team are very professional and with many safety procedures to make sure the weather is fine to operate the hot balloon. They kept us updated throughout the morning. The balloon was ready to ride and were very excited to go up and seethe beautiful skyline. The weather was blue skies and clear and you are floating with the wind. Its a truly an amazing experience.
