Are there any hot air balloon possibilities in Vietnam?


Country: Vietnam


yes in Ha Long bay, Quang Ninh Province.
I am afraid impossible
Hot-air balloon to show Tam Ky Town in new light
Quang Nam Department of Trade launched a hot-air balloon service that allows visitors to enjoy the beautiful landscapes of Tam Ky Town from a height of 50m.

The balloon can carry four people besides the operator and a trip lasts for 15 to 20 minutes and costs VND 50,000 a person.

Tam Ky is known for its man-made reservoir Phu Ninh located some 7km west of the town and said to be Quang Nam Province's largest lake.

In the middle of the 3,433ha lake are hot springs and 30 pretty little islands that give it the appearance of a Halong Bay in miniature.

From the balloon visitors can also see Tam Thanh, the most beautiful beach in Tam Ky.

Thank you very much, it's unfortunately not the type of balloon flight we had in mind. I hoped that there were possibilities in Vietnam for flights that would go longer, higher and further. Tam Ky is also not on our itenary (HCMH, Nha Thrang, Hoi An, Hue, Hanoi, Halong Bay).
yes, there is the Tam Ky town in Quang Nam, you can have the balloon for 20 mins with probably a tour guie
there are some agents in HCMC and Hanoi which supply hot air balloon for advertising. But in Hue,there is an hiring hot air balloon agent for every people
Thank you very much, do you know how to get more information? Is there a website for flights from Hue?
The answer is "No" for flying interprovices due to security regulation. No exceptional case so far.

"Yes" for on-site entertainment with tickets, i.e. you are allowed to fly up and down in 20 min but in narrow site.
Hi there,

If you look for the one from which you can have a magnificent view like in Angkor Wat, the answer is "no". It is really not economical to travel a long way to Tam Ky just for a 20-minute on an air-balloon. There are many other places in Vietnam that you can enjoy the beauties such as Hanoi, Sapa, Halong Bay, Hue, Hoi An, Nha Trang, Saigon and Mekong Delta...

I do not know if there are hot air balloon in the south of Vietnam or not. In the North of Vietnam, I am sure 100% there are no hot air balloon possibilities.
Hi Hunter,
As others have alluded to, there are no lengthy flights in or around any of the places included on your itinerary. Hot air ballooning as it is known in most of the world is unknown here. Might be a business opportunity though!

Happy travels,
Tam Ky has the best possibilities so far, but the trips do not last long. Hopefully in the future this will develop into a more widespread attraction in Vietnam.
