Taunggyi Balloon Festival

November 13, 2012 by Khiri Travel |

On from November 22 to November 28 2012.

Taunggyi Balloon

Taunggyi (a 1 hour drive from Inle Lake) is famous for the Tazaungdine celebrations when huge papier-mâché hot air balloons (in different shapes) are launched from the crowded festival field in Taunggyi. Once the balloon reaches a height of about 20 meter the fireworks attached to the balloons are launched in all directions. A fun and spectacular festival which you should try to join if you’re in Myanmar. Don’t get too close to the launch site of the balloons, hot dripping wax (or fire crackers) tend to fall on the crowd.

Do your clients want to join this festival? There are still rooms available for this period although the choice is getting a bit limited.
