Ready to experience the Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta all over again? MyBalloonFiesta is set to return to Putrajaya in March 2020.
For the 11th year, visitors will get to experience free flying and tethered balloon rides. Plus, there will also be a balloon display with various special shaped balloons.
This time around, you can look forward to hot air balloons coming from more than 10 different countries. They include Brazil, United Kingdom, United States of America, Italy, Japan, Spain, Thailand, Canada, France, Taiwan, and of course, our very own country Malaysia.
For the uninitiated, you’ll get to witness up close how hot air balloons are set up and inflated at MyBalloonFiesta. It’s also a sight to behold when numerous hot air balloons take off into the sky. Let’s face it, your experience wouldn’t be complete without riding on a hot air balloon as it floats 60 feet above Putrajaya.
