Posted by Mexicano31 on 27/5/2010 at 05:29

Just wondering guys,

has anyone hired a scenic plane or helicopter flight in Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia or anywhere in SEA? something that would give you great views of the landscape...

I don't know how much they cost, but there are hot air balloons for tourists over Angkhor Wat and Bagan every sunset.

Last year I took a 6am Air Asia flight from Bali to KL. We flew over Mount Bromo just as the sun was rising and the view was simply stunning.

Thats interesting SBE, thanks for the info. I hope those hot air balloon flights are not too expensive.

the balloon over Bagan was something exorbitant like $250 USD!

When i flew from Bali to Kuala Lumpur on a commercial flight i had the best view of all the volcanoes. It was the most amazing flight that I have ever been on!
