2nd Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta 2010

We went for the 1st Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta 2009. You can read about it here. We also went for the 1st Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta – Night Glow event. Read about it here.
We thoroughly enjoyed our experience on both occasions. This year, we intend to do the same. I’m crossing my fingers and toes that Ethan will be in the pink of health by then. Please cross yours too, can? Thank you :)

I wrote to the organiser to inquire about the helicopter ride. This is what I found out.

Just come to the secretariat booth on Saturday/Sunday and kindly make your payment, which is RM 120 per passenger (we charge by seating). The helicopter will take you around Putrajaya for 7 – 10 mins. The booth opens from 8.00 – 2.00 PM

Cool! Darling and I, we’ll burn RM 240 in just under ten minutes! And I’m not even sure if we need to pay the same for Ethan! Who’s game for this? Tell me, because I’ll give you my camera and ask for your favour to help take some great shots and maybe pay you a little commission :P

So expensive~lah!

    Rm240 can buy one nice helicopter toy that can fly using remote control for Ethan to play. If smaller ones can buy 3 sets! LOL!

    I find the fiesta disappointing. Was there last night. They inflated a balloon (from Japan) and then deflated it after awhile. No flying of balloons. I find the whole setup substandard.I paid >RM600 for a real balloon ride in Turkey and it was worth every ringgit. We landed in a farm and popped champagne to celebrate a succeessful landing.

    We went for the helicopter ride in Gold Coast (honeymoon). It was expensive too. But it's worth it. Once in a lifetime experience. :)

    Cool! If I will you, I rather pay the air ticket then aleast I can ride for 45min from KL to Singapore.Maybe, it is a good experience as well. It is good to try. 7- 10 mins ar… I don’t think so… when it goes up , I guess aleast 3 min and down 3 min. How to travel around putrajaya within 4 min????Maybe, putrajaya is damn small place.
