Somehow, plane rides have taken away all the fun of flying. It’s cramped, stuffy, and there’s nothing see from 38,000 feet aboveground. Rekindle the magic of flying when you hop on a hot air balloon in any of the countries we’ve listed down below.

1. Cappadocia, Turkey


Take a vertical ride up into the atmosphere of Cappadocia for a spectacular view of the sinuous valleys and cliffs.  and you’ll be greeted by Fairy Chimneys, mushroom-shaped rock formations that resulted from centuries of erosion.

2. Gold Coast, Australia
