Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta

Hot air balloon festival in Putrajaya

Get high at the Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta, an annual event in Kuala Lumpur that really makes you sit up and take notice. A great way to snap some great travel photos, it takes place near the Putrajaya Lake and is reminiscent of New York’s Adirondack Hot Air Balloon Festival.

Expect to see lots of colourful, teardrop-shaped balloons but there are also some outrageous, quirkily-shaped ones. Previous participating hot air balloons have included one shaped like Darth Vader’s head, a cat, Doraemon, a clown, a pink elephant’s head and even one shaped like a giant peacock.

Fun for the Whole Family

The event will see over 20 balloons (five of which are tethered) from 13 countries, including the USA, Germany, Netherlands, France and more. Taking place from 28 March – 31 March, 2013, this year marks the festival’s fifth anniversary and will take place in Precinct 2, Putrajaya – about 45 minutes from Kuala Lumpur.

The four-day event is used as a promotional opportunity with the event management team leasing out space for big-name companies to introduce new products. Those not keen on the idea of going up in one of the balloons need not worry as the festival entertains in a variety of ways. Besides hot air balloon rides (including tethered rides, for those not keen on flying up, up and away), there are also other activities to make this an interesting affair to attend. From wall climbing, car simulators, an archery range and paintball to Zorbing, Segway and helicopter rides, the Putrajaya Hot Air Balloon Fiesta has something for everyone.
