Malaysia Balloon Festival

The International Balloon Festival will be held from May 9 to May 11 at Dataran Bandaraya, Johor Baru. This event features 10 pilots with balloons from around the world. It is hoped that besides putting Johor on the world map, the festival would boost the state’s tourism industry.

Malaysia Balloon FestivalPilots are excited about coming to Johor as balloon festivals were previously held only in Kuala Lumpur. The attractions to watch for include a night display of illuminated hot air balloons and a race from Dataran Bandaraya to Bandar Nusajaya.


You can read about the event here, and find other balloon festivals in Asia.

Besides the balloon displays, other events include skydiving, paragliding, rock climbing, paintball and go-kart races.
