Hot air ballooning festival comes to Hua Hin


Published on Jan 25, 2011

From 12 February to 6 March 2011 Hua Hin Hills Vineyard, Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) and Stafford Edison International Classic Events will team up to host the inaugural Hua Hin Hot Air Ballooning Festival.

The event begins daily at 6am, when participating guests are collected from their hotels and driven approximately 45 minutes via private limo to Hua Hin Hills Vineyard, a 480-acre (194-hectare) plantation that produces grapes for Siam Winery’s main label, Monsoon Valley.

That will be followed by a one-hour flight in a hot air balloon over the Hua Hin Hills Vineyard estate and the rolling countryside that surrounds it. Once back on the ground, a sparkling wine breakfast will be served in a party tent among the grape vines while a traditional jazz band performs. The morning-long activity concludes with a return limousine ride.

Each guest also receives an in-flight souvenir photograph and a "Certificate of Grand Voyage". The special package is priced at US$500 or THB15,000 per person.
