Depending on the wind direction, we shall fly hot air balloon either from the centre of Phan Thiet city, or close to famous white sand dunes – the driest place in Vietnam. In both cases, after the flight our cars will transport you back to your hotel or other place in the city. The whole adventure will take 3 – 4 hours. The flight itself shall take around 1 hour.
Flight from Phan Thiet city centre:
We will start our journey from the central square of Phan Thiet city. The hot air balloon will gently carry us over the buzzing streets of rising city, and the river, where small fishing boats are resting in the rising sun. We will approach the sea shore, and if the winds are favourable, we will even fly a part of our journey over the sea itself. It is only one of the two places in the world that we know of where such adventure is possible! As we will head back towards the land, we will witness rural life of locals, and land in serendipious fields about 15 kilometres from the city.
Flight near Mui Ne over white sand dunes:
We will lift off in rural area, and you will see farmers working in the fields, and cattle grazing dry grass. The Mars-like colour of the landscape shall soon be contrasted by white sand dunes with shining diamond in the middle: a desert lake. A huge statue of Buddha shall wish us well as the hot air balloon passes by. All this, combined with nearing seashore, gives and impression of the most unusual place indeed. As if we were visiting a different planet.
