The picturesque hot air balloons dotting the sky was my wallpaper for a long time and I really wanted to experience this in reality and thanks to Thrillophilia I got to do it! Once there at the spot, the guide was very helpful and attentive towards our comfort and safety, which was reassuring. As we rose to 4000 or so feet in the sky, it was an otherworldly experience! The wallpaper became a reality before my eyes as sand dunes underneath and blue sky above complemented the view. The Arabian sunrise from such a perspective was an unforgettable experience! You must see it. The sight of animals walking casually underneath was a nice bonus. They say each time the balloons land somewhere different because of the wind, as we touched down gently, we were then given a ride through the dunes on a vintage Land Rover which was a nice ending touch to this breathtaking experience! Totally recommended to anyone!

The best thing about the Dubai trip is that you get to visit the most amazing places and you also can enjoy some adventure activities. The hot air balloon trip was one of my favourites. We booked the tickets through thrillophilia and the driver picked up at around 4:15 in the morning because the destination was at distance. It was a 1 hour balloon ride and a breathtaking sunrise view.
