Hot Air Balloon Festival

The 17th Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta will be held on February 9-12, 2012 so if you are thinking where to spend your advance Valentine’s celebration you can include this in your choices.


Year 2009, we decided to celebrate our Valentine’s Day in Hot Air Balloon Festival so we booked our accommodation at Oasis hotel. As I expected, the place was crowded and it’s hard to look for parking space, thank God that we were able to park our car near the entrance. The entrance fee was only P100 but now it’s P200, but don’t worry it’s all worth it because there are so many activities that you can enjoy depending on your preference. This was our first time to experience Hot Air Balloon Festival so we’re all excited.
   
I will share some of our pictures so you will have an idea on to what to expect. Some photos are blurred because I used my cellphone. Do not forget to bring cap, umbrella and water, sobrang init.

  25. I only see in the movie this hot air balloon flyng up, up in the air. Now it is here in the country. I will mark that date, Feb. 9-12, 2012. I am interested to see this festival.

    I remember that I saw an air exhibition of jet flying over the air of Clark Air field 21 years ago when I attended the 11th BSP National Jamboree there.

  31. ^i don't think magkakaubusan ng ticket, doon din kami bumili ng ticket and after lunch kami dumating. =)pero it's better kung morning kayo punta para hindi mainit.

    "You can purchase entrance coupons at the gate, at any SM Ticketnet outlet, or at ROX Bonifacio Global City and ROX Marquee Mall Clark."
