11-13 March 2016: Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta


The Hot Air Balloon fiesta is finally here again in 2016. There are 20 beautiful balloons up for show, the fiesta has tethered balloon rides as well as cold inflation where visitors can get up close and explore inside the balloons.
There will be a lot of activities throughout the day. The fiesta is separated into few zones. Green Zone is for sport enthusiasts where exciting sports activities such as junior bungee, paddle boat, inflatables, etc are held in this zone. Yellow zone is for shopaholics where you may get yourself a souvenir by hanging in this zone. Purple zone is for food and beverages stalls where you may fill up your stomach with delicious food as well. Spot for the blue zone if you are looking for hot air balloons. The picnic area attracts my attention; the organiser is so creative that an area is set up for visitors to enjoy their moments at around this area. It is a very good idea indeed. Remember to keep a copy of the floor plan to prevent you to get lost.
