Essential China Hot air balloon Yangshou?

Postby benstormer » Thu Oct 06, 2011 9:33 am

Hi all,just wondering if Hot air ballooning is still an option on this tour in Yangshou?
Looking through other peoples blogs of the tour there is photos of them doing this but it makes no mention of it in the trip details,optional extras etc.
Many thanks, Ben

There is a hot air ballooning in Yangshuo, but it is not an option activity for G Adventures.
We took off hot air ballooning from our optional activity list because it didn't meet our requirements in regards to safety issues.

A CEO wrote to me saying that she strongly suggests not to do this activity in this area, but somewhere else as there have been multiple accidents in China.
