For the 8th year, Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta will be back from March 11th to 13th, 2016.

As for myself, being a dedicated visitor for the past 8 years :) This year, i hope to be able to get the chance for a free-balloon ride, i mean the
untethered one of course.
as it would be a great opportunity for me to snap pictures from high up. 

Expect a more grandeur sight and scene as this year, there will be 20 hot air balloons, with 5 special ones, such as :

Bobo the Happy Lobster from Belgium
Yellow Jacket Bee from Brazil
Mister Z from USA
First time flown in Asia : Alien Rocket from Canada
La Replica, an exact replica of the first hot air balloon flown by the Montgolfier Brothers many many years ago.

Best time to view them?

Morning : before 7 am
Evening : from 6 pm onwards.

Expect bigger and better Fiesta this year. 

Exciting features : Yoga and Zumba session, double capacity of the lauching field and night glow access, with MyBalloonClub will be at a better spot enable its members to more enjoyable time there.Fun activities for everyone!
