Hot air balloon ride in Dubai

We had an exiting Hot Air Balloon ride right here in Dubai. It is real easy to book online. But remember, you must book well in advance – especially if you would like to go on a weekend !
On the scheduled day, you are expected to reach Dubai Outlet Mall at 5.30 AM. They will pick you up and drive you to the desert where the balloons are waiting for you. You will be given a safety brief by the Captain, after which you are ready to go! There are about 20-24 people in each basket – mainly couples. Such a romantic feeling to be flying at 4000 ft high over Dubai with your loved one.

The one major upset of this whole experience is the view isn’t really spectacular – you only see the desert spanning the entire horizon, as far as the eye can see. I’m sure it would be more exciting to ride in places like Turkey, where the landscape is phenomenal.

Nonetheless, the experience is worth the heft bill you would have to pay (almost AED 1000 per person).

 

And here is my last post in 2015. See you on the other side!

Happy New Year 🙂
