Option 1: Fah Lanna Hot Air Balloon Experience with Spa Package

There’s no better way to see the beauty of northern Thailand’s Chiang Mai than by hot air balloon. During your flight, you will get a bird’s eye view of the spectacular Chiang Mai scenery and the surrounding areas, expertly guided by an English-speaking pilot. You will be picked up from your hotel around dawn to enjoy the sunrise with a morning tea or coffee while your balloon is being prepared for takeoff. Floating up into the sky is effortless and at the morning are is calm and cool. Once in the air, you get to experience breath-taking views for over an hour as you gently float through the clouds – bring your camera and a selfie stick for some amazing pictures. After an hour, once the sun is up and the morning mist is clearing, you will gently drop back to the ground, and depending on where you are landing traffic may be stopped to ensure a smooth landing.

It’s essential to celebrate successful landings with Champagne and so toast with the pilot before enjoying a well deserved breakfast buffet. When you are satiated, you’ll be whisked back to Chiang Mai and into the centre of the old city to visit the award-winning Fah Lanna Spa for one of their remarkable massages (choosing from Traditional Thai, Reflexology Foot, Head, Back and Shoulder, Aloe Vera, Hot Oil, the Siam Massage Package or many more pampering options).

Hot air ballooning in Chiang Mai is fun during all seasons, and actually in rain and fog the experience can be even more magical since you will rise above the clouds! In case of bad weather alternative dates or full refunds are offered, but book early (minimum 3 days in advance) as in high season both Balloon Adventure Thailand and Fah Lanna Spa are booked well in advance.

Option 2: The Romantic Private Hot Air Balloon Flight for two, followed by a Couple’s Spa Package

This package is similar to option 1 but guarantees you will be alone in the basket and experience the ride of a lifetime with your loved one. One of the favourite places for people to propose in Chiang Mai is 1,000 feet up in the air! Balloon Adventure Thailand has lost track of the number of successful proposals up in the clouds, but they say no one has ever said no, and how could they with such a unique experience.  Let them create a magical moment for marriage proposals, anniversary celebration, honeymoons, birthdays or other celebrations with loved ones. You tell them the occasion and they can help with organizing flowers and a banner that the pilot will keep hidden until you give him the signal. Then, during your flight, you can give your loved one the flowers while the pilot reveals the banner. It doesn’t get more romantic than this! And that’s just the start of the adventure. Upon landing celebrate with a champagne reception and breakfast before being whisked away to Fah Lanna Spa to relax back down to earth with their 4 hour couple’s spa package including  a Herbal Steam, Exfoliating Body Scrub, Fah Lanna Royal Bath, Aromatherapy Oil Massage, and Facial Treatment for two, before having a Thai lunch or coffee break at Fah Tara cafe.
