At exactly 15pm 3.4, we were at the Crescent Lake District 7, Ho Chi Minh City to participate in the hot air balloon experience program. At this time, the sun has not “cooled down”, but thousands of people, including many young people, took advantage of a long queue to experience the hot air balloon once.

“Unexpectedly so extreme”

It is known that this is a fun activity organized by a drinking water company with the desire for more people to experience flying with a hot air balloon in Ho Chi Minh City. Accordingly, to climb on this hot air balloon, people need to line up and buy 4 boxes of drinks from the organizer for more than 100,000 VND. A lucky draw ticket is then issued. If you are lucky, the organizers will draw “win” and you will be on a hot air balloon, flying at an altitude of more than 20 meters, within 5 minutes.

“Tired, so sunny!”, Tran Ngoc Phuong Vy, 18, a student of the Ho Chi Minh City University of Technical Education, lamented while waiting in a long queue for his turn.Vy said that she knew about this activity through social networking sites . “Since then until now, I haven’t been on a hot air balloon, so I was eager to participate in the experience, but unexpectedly it was so extreme. I’ve been in line for nearly 45 minutes, but I don’t know when it’s my turn ”, Vy shared.

Like Vy, Ly Quang Khai, 22 years old, living in Binh Tan District, Ho Chi Minh City, said that from the young to the big, it was not allowed to climb or touch the hot air balloon any time. So when he knew the information, Khai immediately joined him.”I am very excited these days, but when I come here, I have to wait in long lines in the hot sun and wait for the luck to get the turn instead of spending money to buy tickets to experience,” Khai shared.

Communication game?

At exactly 16 pm, the hot air balloon was filled with gas by the staff and was about to “take off”, many young people were very excited. However, thousands of people participating in this program still do not experience flying with the hot air balloon because of the wind. Instead, they were allowed to take pictures within 5 minutes .

However, I feel happy to be able to check-in the basket of the balloon, ”said Van. Like Van, Ms. Nguyen Thi Truc An, 29 years old, working as an employee in District 5, Ho Chi Minh City, said that she had queued for more than 45 minutes to buy the product. “They said that when the wind runs out, the balloon will fly, but I’ve waited until almost 18 o’clock. Maybe this is just a media trick. But anyway, I can see it and see it for the first time. On the basket of the hot air balloon, I’m happy too, “said An. Follow Thanh Nien Online
