Hot air balloon rides provide some amazing views of the world’s most scenic places. What can be more beautiful than a bird’s eye view? It offers a totally different perspective of places you may have already explored on foot. Hot air balloon rides are also incredibly romantic, especially because many take place at dawn or dusk.
1. Melbourne, Australia
Not all hot air balloon rides take place over wide open countryside – some are urban adventures, like a flight over Melbourne. You will be able to view the lush green parks, the Rod Laver Arena (which hosts the Australian Tennis Open in the early weeks of January every year) and the beautiful skyline. There is an additional champagne breakfast, which will allow you to watch the sun rise over the capital of Victoria state in style.
