Love is in the Air

We are shamelessly watching Emily in Paris (Season Three) and in love with the “Love is in the Air” campaign inspired by Cappadocia’s balloon skyline. So we thought this would be the perfect month to highlight top romantic hot air balloon experiences around the world…


Picture perfect for a proposal, Cappadocia’s Pigeon Valley was put on the map by soaring hot air balloons over a romanic otherworldly landscape backdrop. Instagrammable boulders, hollowed out into the sheer rock formations with spectators only wishing to by flying high too.

Our Hotel Pick: Argos in Cappadocia

Talking about other-wordly views, how about viewing the vast Sossuvlei Desert from above?  Calmly watch the satin sands ebb and flow, spot Orxy herds darting in the unshaded hillside, before gliding to a standstill, in time for a champagne breakfast.

Our Hotel Pick: Sossuvlei Lodge

BAGAN, Myanmar
