It's the 7th International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta in Putrajaya now and there are 7 reason why you should be here!

7 Reasons Why You Should NOT Miss the 7th PIHABF (#myballoonfiesta)
  1. Premium Tethered Rides with MyBalloonClub
    • Balloon enthusiasts as well as those in search of a unique breakfast experience can look no further. MyBalloonClub is a premium treat whereby members can break away from the crowds to enjoy a picturesque viewing of the hot air balloons flying against the blue sky while listening to live jazz music and dining on a gourmet buffet breakfast.
  2. Picnic Area
    • As one of the favourite annual highlights, this year will see Night Glow held over not one, but two nights. Watch the hot air balloons come alive as pilots ignite their burners, transforming their balloons into glowing bulbs set to float across the evening sky. Top it off with music and a spectacular fireworks finale on 14th and 15th March.
  3. Helicopter Joy Rides
    • Once in a lifetime opportunity to experience Putrajaya from a bird’s eye view, the Helicopter Joy Rides are the fastest selling online tickets!

This stunning aircraft seats up to 6 passengers excluding pilot with rides lasting between 5-7 minutes.
  4. Van Gogh Balloon
    • Headlining the balloons is a first-time feature in Malaysia, the Van Gogh balloon. This special hot air balloon that will be celebrating its 150th anniversary, pays tribute to the famed post-impressionist European painter who played major influence on 20th century art.
