NDO – Hot-air balloon rides have been launched in Phan Thiet city, Binh Thuan province, for tourists to admire the stunning view of the coastal port city from above.
Phan Thiet is the first city in Vietnam to launch this tourist service, which is run by Vietnam Balloons flight operator.
Tomas Valiukas – co-founder of Vietnam Balloons said that he had travelled across Vietnam over the past two years to find out the best places to operate the tour while inviting experienced and professional pilots to evaluate the feasibility of the tours. Phan Thiet is the first place to be selected for the service.
Valiukas shared that during his travel, he found that Vietnam is a unique destination for flying experience, since one can witness ponds, lakes, forests, sea, rivers, fields, fishing boats, temples, sand dunes and mountains from above during the rides.
Valiukas also stressed that his company always places safety first, adding that all pilots have international certificates to perform commercial flights, and all balloons are produced by the world’s most trusted suppliers.
The one-hour tour is available from 5 am to 9 am everyday. It is now priced at VND 7 million (US$310) and can be booked by calling the hotline +8490 392 25 51. For more information log on to www.vietnamballoons.com.
