Insider Journeys is advising travel agents that the immensely popular hot air balloon experience in Bagan, Burma, should be booked in advance to avoid client disappointment.
While ballooning companies do take bookings locally, during peak periods, particularly from October – March, flights are often fully booked with few if any last minute spots available.
According to Insider Journeys Product Manager Jackie Firmstone, this memorable experience features highly on many travellers’ list.
“The opportunity to experience Bagan, from above, over the thousands of temples dotting the landscape is truly spectacular,” says Firmstone. “Unfortunately the majority of clients who elect to leave it until they are in Burma are missing out altogether and expressing their disappointment on their return home.”
“As an ‘insider tip’, we recommend our clients and their agents book their balloon flight at the same time as making their Burma arrangements in order to avoid disappointment.”
