The festival will bring together ten hot air balloons from five countries including Japan, the Netherlands, Thailand, Malaysia, and Vietnam; with 3 types of hot air balloons including free-flying hot air balloon at the altitudes of 100 to 300 meters with the radius of five kilometers from the takeoff point; hung-flying hot air balloon at the altitudes of 50 meters right at the anchor point; and mini hot air balloon to perform and for visitors to take photos.

The festival will take place at Ngo Mon Square, from April 26 to May 2, from 5:30 to 9:00 in the morning; and from 16:30 to 18:30 in the afternoon. In particular, the light night of hot air balloons will take place at 19:30 on April 27.

The festival promises to bring a new wind, adorning the sky of Hue with giant hot air balloons. This is also an opportunity for visitors to enjoy the landscape of Hue City in a completely new way from the air, and see the whole city in its new look from a completely different perspective and experience.
