We have total 03 types of flights to enjoy the Balloon ride from Standard flight, Deluxe flight and Privilege Flight Package – find the rates and discount offers valid for 2016. The most sought after emirate in UAE, Dubai, is not only known as the city of riches and spectacular architecture, but also is brimming with adventure sports and thrills. Over the years Dubai has been successful in building multi-billion dollar recreation facilities for its citizens and for tourists. Along with indoor skiing, elaborate water parks, artificial island, tallest uber-luxurious hotels and underwater restaurants, there comes an array of adventure sports for people who love the thrill. A hot air balloon ride is one of them.
Offering a wide panorama of the entire desert emirate, hot air balloon ride is one of the most sought after adventure ride in Dubai. The sight from high up in the air witnessing a grand sunset is a dream come true for many. An airplane ride often offers that view but the feeling of the wind caressing the skin in an open air ride is something which very few people get chance to enjoy.
