Hot Air Ballooning in Abu Dhabi
A driver will pick you up at roughly 430 am, before taking you the hour journey, half way towards Al Ain, to a place called Sweihan, which is where the hot air balloon lifts off. Watching the balloon get filled with helium is enjoyable enough, and there is an air of expectation amongst everyone who will share your balloon with you, usually up to 10 people maximum. Climbing in the basket is a little tricky, but all is forgotten as the heat lets loose and you lift off. The sensation of flying in a hot air balloon is indescribable, and if you can afford to do this trip, the feeling will remain with you for the rest of your life.
