Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta 2011 is back again


Hot Air Balloon Festival 2011 Information;

Balloon Sightings. The timings for the hot air balloons taking off have been set to twice a day which are; 7am - 9am and 5.30pm - 7pm. The balloons will fly no higher than 304 meters while they will keep within a 5km radius of the event site. Come early to capture the best moments.

Hot Air Balloon Rides for the public are available at RM10 (adults) and RM5 (children). The rides are located at the main event grounds from 8am-11am and 6pm - 9pm. Note that these rides are where you get in the balloon and lift up to a height of a hundred feet in the air and then back down. Each ride lasts about 5 minutes. To avoid the long queues, you are advised to go early and line up to buy the tickets for the rides. I am hoping that the organisers will have more ticket counters open unlike last year. 

Helicopter Rides - For those wanting something different, you have an option of experiencing a helicopter ride around the area. A 15 minute ride will set you back about RM150 per person so if you have never been on one, this is your chance.  

Photography/Video - If you are planning on doing some photography or video, I would advise that you bring a camera with a good zoom. DSLR Cameras will telephoto or zoom lenses are recommended. A minimum 105mm lens would be great to capture some of the amazing moments. I use a 55mm-300mm Nikon lens so it is quite sufficient.

Balloons to look out for - Cat Balloon from Vietnam, Darth Vader Balloon, Lion Head Balloon, Elephant and Rose Balloon.
