Putrajaya Hot Air Balloon Festival
As I am residing in Port Dickson which so much closer to Putrajaya, I plan to bring my little ones for The 6th Putrajaya International Balloon Fiesta 2014 in Putrajaya Malaysia. It will be held for four days from the 27th – 30th March 2014 during the first term school holidays. From the main website it is stated there will be more than 20 hot air balloons from all over the world, including at least five special shaped hot air balloons. It is said there is going to be a Darth Vader balloon. The time when they will float the balloons will be in the mornings and in the evenings, so it’s going to be a unique experience for my two heroes. Admission is free.
From their website it also states that there will also be the Mountain Dew Extreme Zone which will boasts an array of outdoor fun activities including water zorbing and rock climbing for the adventurous. Lots of food and beverage outlets. For the kids there will be a Kids’ Play Area that will offer a variety of amusement rides, coloring contests, arts & crafts and many more.
At night there will be an explosive ‘Night Glow’ event, where hot air balloons and strobe lights are lit up in sync to the sounds of popular music followed by fireworks display. That is one of the reason that I chose to stay at Pullman Putrajaya as the resort is located just across the lake with a great view of the Hot Air Balloon area. So we don’t need to travel out, we just need sit by the lake and enjoy the view.
