Dubai is one of of the most opted tourist destinations for Indian travellers. Every year loads of travellers fly to Dubai to visit the famous Burj Khalifa & Palm Jumeirah, to do shopping during the Dubai shopping festival, to experience magnificent underwater world and various theme parks. However, if we look closer, Dubai still retains its traditional charm which can be found if only you have the heart for it. Dubai Creek, its old dhow boats, souks and Art museum, are a few remnants of Dubai’s glorious history. You can take a safari to delve deeper into the traditional side of the Dubai desert life of the Bedouins. A thrilling way of exploring the heart of the Dubai desert life is by taking a Hot Air Ballooning ride. Take in the beauty of mesmerising sunrise as the colour of the sky spreads around the Arabian Desert against the backdrop of Hajjar mountain range. Gaze in awe at some spectacular desert vistas while enjoying in the air. Indeed a once in a lifetime experience to watch the indigenous animals of Dubai, the Oryx and the gazelles, wandering freely over the carpet of never-ending sand dunes. See the enchanting bird’s eye view of the mighty Dubai desert.
An early morning ride with the sunrise will surely take your breath-away. Drive 30 minutes from Central Dubai to Markham, the launch field for the ride. Wait and watch as your colourful balloon inflates. Followed by a quick safety briefing, hop on the balloon’s basket and get ready to take the most memorable ride of your life with your experienced pilot. See Dubai with a magical ride over sand dunes, oases, camels and gazelles. As you watch the sun rise over the red-tinged sand dunes, listen to your pilot talking about the barren landscape mapped out beneath you, and learn about the wildlife, camels and gazelles that prosper in the harsh desert conditions. Each basket holds not more than 24 people at a time which leaves ample space for each rider to get a bird’s eye view of the amazing desert landscape. After an hour in the air, follow the pilot’s instructions for a smooth landing. Once on land, celebrate your flight by receiving your individual flight certificate along with a cool refreshing drink. A professional video will be captured of your experience during the flight which you can purchase if you wish to. Return with an amazing experience of Hot Air Ballooning in Dubai.
