Forget Singapore’s economic inflation, and start thinking about a physical inflation.
Singapore’s very first hot air balloon has announced its opening, and tickets are priced at $265 per pax, with a cap on three people in a group.
The Hot-Air Experience
The “Ballons du Monde” journey takes three parts over the course of 50 minutes.
The first is “Ballooning 101”, presumably a small introduction to the history of hot-air balloons. The website boasts of “fun anecdotes” and “astute observations”.
The second part is named “Human’s First Flight”, which is the hot-air balloon ride itself that ranges from 5-7 minutes.

The last part is to “Celebrate your safe return to Earth”, where a celebratory toast (non-alcoholic) will be had.
Visitors to the attraction are allowed to roam freely within the site and view the hot air balloons, as well as take pictures.
The balloon will fly up to 25-30 metres, but a height lower than that is adjustable based on personal preference.
Ballons du Monde is located at the Bayfront Event Space located at 12A Bayfront Avenue Singapore 018970, at the open ground behind the Red Dot Museum.
The ride runs two sessions: sunrise, and evening, for the ultimate golden hour vibes.
As hot-air balloon rides are weather-dependent, Ballon du Monde reserves the rights to reschedule bookings (at no extra charge) should there be rain. It also works on a dedicated time-slot basis, which needs to be adhered to strictly.
Though the ride has a three-pax limit, it also has a two-pax minimum.
Standard safe management measures apply, as well as the mask-on rule. All visitors should be fully vaccinated.
Do note that there are no restrooms in the area.
Hype for Height
This hot-air balloon was spotted by members of the public late last year when it was going on test flights.
Presently, the ride is not open yet to the public for the “best and safest experience for everyone”, as the operators are still “currently working with the relevant authorities”.
From the ultimate romantic setting to a once-in-a-lifetime experience, the ride is definitely something cool to try out.
