When I first heard that there’s going to have a Hot Air Balloon Festival so near to the place I stay, I say, I MUST GO! Moreover, I also read from newspaper that you only need to pay RM10 for a ride on the balloon. Amazing ain’t it?
It was held for 3 days, starting from 28th May 2010. Each day it was divide into 2 session, 6.30am to 9am and 5.30pm to 7.30pm. The event was held at Taman Jubli Emas, Alor Setar.
However, the organizer had done a poor poor job. Taman Jubli Emas is a huge park, but we are not allowed to drive our car and park inside, while inside there’s still loads of place for parking. The police told us that only VIP can drive in, and others had to park their car on the road side. We were lucky as we reach early at around 3 PM while others who came late had to park their car as far as 2km from the entrance of the park.
