HOT AIR BALLOON FESTIVAL in Clark, Pampanga

Hi guys!

My friends and I are interested to go to Clark, Pampanga on February 11 (sunday) for the Hot Air Balloon Festival since we saw it on a billboard in edsa. However, we have a lot of questions regarding this and maybe you can help us plan our trip.

QUESTIONS:

Can we ride the balloon, and if yes, how much would it cost if we ride one?

How long will it take for us to tour and how far can we go?


Please help us! any info that would help will be greatly appreciated. :)

    interested in this as well...anyone been to the festival last year?
  • prettysugarprettysugar PEx Veteran ⭐⭐
    I visited the www.philballoonfest.com

    From what I've read it will be at P190/head and there 2 flight schedules for each day, particularly during sunrise and sunset. :)

    Just visit the website, and I guess I've answered my own questions na din. But any experience you can share with us before we go there will help :)
  • ^ me skydiving ba? :D
  • wow! 190 pesos per person is very cheap! a balloon ride here in vancouver is about 200 dollars for about 2 hours.

    a balloon ride is very nice! you move with the wind so it doesn't scare you as when you're standing on the edge of a rooftop. and it's peaceful up there since you are high up enough not to hear the sounds from the ground but you will have breathtaking sights from up there. this would be awesome for a memorable date with your loved one. i'm telling you it's totally worth it!!

    and for 190?!?!?! wow! i'd ride it for houSSSS...
  • prettysugarprettysugar PEx Veteran ⭐⭐
    ^oo nga eh. im not very sure but sabi dun sa FAQs ng site P190 lang, about an hour ride yun and the whole adventure would take up to three hours pero 45mins sa taas, satisfied na ako dun!

    2 flights a day, one in the morning and one before sunset:)

    nasabi ko na ata to hahaha ;)

  • ayos to...punta kami sunday...san ba pwede mag stay overnight dun sa clark? mura lang syempre

  • and where to stay in pangpanga?
  • question po: pede ba lumapit ng malapitan sa mga hot air balloons?
  • paano pumunta dito? yung detailed. from NLEX. what exit to take and so on.

    thanks.
  • i was invited by my moms friend,kaso nahihiya ako.. pro honestly super gusto ko.. kasi if ever it would be my first time hehehe :)
  • i was invited by my moms friend,kaso nahihiya ako.. pro honestly super gusto ko.. kasi if ever it would be my first time hehehe :)

    ngui! bakit ka naman mahihiya? go ka lang ng go! ako rin, di pa ko nakakapunta sa ganyang event ever. Kahit konti lang kami na magpupunta dun, go pa rin. ;)
  • Ask ko lang po ung mga nakapanood na ng event na to. Is it really worth watching? Kasi, mukhang di na sure yung mga makakasama ko eh, so plan kong magpunta na lang mag-isa. Or kung meron dyang mga magco-commute lang papunta dun, baka pwedeng makisabit na lang din ako. Ang sad naman kung mag-isa lang ako pupunta dun. :(
  • sponsor yun company namen...i called up to ask if i can have a free ride on hot air baloon, and they told me YES...just have to present my ID....whooooooooooooooo.......im so excited! i want to try it but i wont be paying that much. and im lucky its for FREE....

    from NLEX, exit at DAU then turn left at the intersection near Max's restaurant then you'll see signs how to get to Clark...you'll see SM Clark also

    wow what company mo po??
