Balloons over Bagan - OK for mobility challenged?

Jump to last reply

Are there seats for passengers in the passenger compartment of the balloon?

I ask because I'm planning a trip to Myanmar, traveling with someone who can walk but who has trouble standing in one place for more than about 10 minutes. If she could sit during the balloon trip, it would make a big difference for her.

I can see that passengers sit during the landing, but can't tell if this is possible for the rest of the trip.

Also, how difficult is it to get into the passenger compartment? Is there some kind of door, or do people have to climb over the side?

Thanks for any information from those who've been lucky enough to have had the experience!
