5th Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta 2013

The annual Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta is back once again. This year theme is "1 World, 1 Malaysia and 1 Fiesta".

During the  4 day fiesta, from 28th until 31th March 2013, Putrajaya's sky will be dotted with this hot air balloons.

There are around 20 hot air balloons including conventional shaped balloons with various unique designs and motifs.

Interestingly, there are 2 female balloonist this year and their flying skill are comparable to their male counterparts.

Some of the special shaped hot air balloons which make their debut this year come in the shape of smurfs, clown and the 3 wise monkeys. I am sure many would still miss the Darth Vader balloon which last made its appearance 2 years ago.

All the balloons were released today at 7.30am and it is definitely a sight to behold. I could only imagine how the view would look like from the balloon ride.

There are many side events at the site to keep young and adults occupied during the whole duration of the fiesta.
