A hot air balloon has an average diameter of 22 m, a length of 28 m and contains about 3,000 m3 of gas.


This year's festival brings together 10 hot air balloons from 6 countries including the Netherlands, Japan, Korea, Thailand, Malaysia and Vietnam with funding from the socialization source. In the picture are the technicians trying fire to create hot air, the preparation stage to lift the balloon.


Each balloon has 4-8 gas cylinders. In the picture is a technician burning and pumping hot air to lift the balloon in the morning of April 27. A balloon gradually flies off the ground with a compartment that carries 3-4 people.



On the evening of April 27, due to the rain pouring, the time of organization was nearly 1 hour, starting at 18h. However, tourists and people still flock to Ham Nghi courtyard to watch the hot air balloons go up with the light and bustling music.
