Since our childhoods, Hot Air Balloons have always captured our imagination. Always associated with something exotic & adventurous, riding a hot air balloon is everyone's dream! After all who can forget hot air balloon scenes from 'Around The World in 80 Days' or 'The Mummy - 2' or 'Up'
Namma Chennai is hosting its first ever - International Balloon Festival (TNIBF 2019) @ Mahindra World City.
Exoticamp in association with 'Tamilnadu International Balloon Festival brings to 'The Balloon Festival Camp'

We have got exclusive access), interact with hot air balloon pilots, touch and feel the balloons & witness them take flight from the close quarters.
