2018 philippine international hot air balloon tour package


A hot air balloon tour fiesta/festival/tour/celebration we always look forward!

The 22nd Philippine Hot Air Balloon Tour Festival in 2018 is just around the corner! We want you to prepare as early as possible. We know that DIY way is fun to do in any tour festivals in the country but for those who are too preoccupied with other matters, we highly recommend to get a tour package instead. As always, every year, we have no other recommended travel agency in the Philippines that offer one of the most affordable Hot Air Balloon Package than SMTT.

What: 2018 PHILIPPINE INTERNATIONAL HOT AIR BALLOON Fiesta
When: February 8 to 11, 2018 
Where: Omni Aviation Complex, Clark Freeport Zone, Pampanga

For those who are going there as first-time visitors, I would suggest if you don't have a car to just get a tour package. The ideal time to go there is before sunrise and if you are coming from Metro Manila, 2 AM is the most ideal time to leave. It is going to be a bit inconvenient or I am not sure if it's even possible to commute to reach the venue directly during these early hours. Sunrise is when most of the balloons and other "aircrafts" fly up the air so this is the best time to take photos. Once the sun is up like 8 AM to noon and afternoon, it is going to be as hot as hell, pardon me for the words.  You're not going to wish you're there.

I really do agree that the best way to enjoy the Hot Air Balloon  Festival in Clark, Pampanga is to do a side trip to other worthy destinations. That's why SMTT has given 4 other options. Please see below:

REMINDER: Rates may change at any moment. Please contact SMTT directly especially when the festival is very near. We advise to book ahead so you can avail of the current rates. This post will soon be updated from time to time once the official schedule of Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Festival is available.
