Dozens of hot air balloons flew in the sky of Hue land, creating a beautiful image, attracting a large number of people and tourists to enjoy.

There are 10 large hot air balloons with a diameter of 25 - 28m that will be used to carry passengers to fly at an altitude of 300 - 500m, each flight lasts 45 - 60 minutes. From this height, visitors will admire the panoramic view of Hue ancient capital. In addition, 10 mini hot air balloons with a diameter of 6 – 10m will take performancing flights at an altitude of 10 - 20m at Ham Nghi yard.

The free-flying activity with hot air balloons has two routes: flying along the Perfume River to the west, visitors can see the lyrical Perfume River, Thien Mu Pagoda, tombs and monuments on the riversides; or flying along the Perfume River in the east towards Tam Giang lagoon, watching the sunrise over the sea.
