NDO - The first hot air balloon festival in Kon Tum opened on April 23, attracting the participation of thousands of tourists from both inside and outside the province.

This is the first time Kon Tum Province has organised a hot air balloon programme, which is a response to "Kon Tum Tourism Forum - Potential and Prospects". The programme aims to celebrate the 47th anniversary of the Liberation of the South and National Reunification Day (April 30, 1975-2022) and the 50th anniversary of the Dak To-Tan Canh Victory (April 24, 1972-2022).

At the festival, the organising board displayed 25 colourful hot air balloons, of which there were three large hot air balloons to serve the experience of visitors. Accordingly, people and tourists participated in flying hot air balloons in the form of suspended flights at a height of 50m with a 360-degree viewing angle, from which they could see and enjoy the beauty of Kon Tum City from a very different perspective.
