This March, Putrajaya will once again host a fiesta like no other in the country. The thriving government capital will be converted to a major tourist and visitor attraction site over a four- day period from the 28 – 31 March 2013.
The Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta, returns to its Monumen Alaf Baru (also known as the Millennium Monument) grounds for the fifth year running.
2013’s fiesta will see more exciting special shaped balloons such as the Smurf Balloon, piloted by Koen Audenaert of Belgium together with Sven Grenzner of Germany who will be piloting the ‘Clown’ Balloon. 2013 also marks the return of the highly-anticipated “night glow” event where the hot air balloons will participate in a light and sound show on the night of the 30th culminating in a beautiful display of fireworks.
Also, this fiesta will welcome an array of new exciting activities such as the ‘Walk in the Balloon’, an experience where visitors can actually go inside the balloon and also music performances by the Kuala Lumpur Jazz Festival amongst others. Visitors will also enjoy a 30% discount if they decide to use the KLIA Transit to Putrajaya during the fiesta period.
