The lotus flower is one of the most remarkable creations of nature. It is significant to the Asian cultures as a symbol of rebirth, purity and life. The lotus is found in different colors, namely, white, red, blue, pink, and purple, and is found in many Asian countries. The Aquatic Garden of Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) is a star attraction to enjoy the beauty of lotus flowers in the summer.
   From July 1 to August 31, a lotus flower festival or “lotus month” is ongoing in XTBG. Visitors will see a spectacular display of lotus and water lilies in full bloom. The exquisite fragrance of the lotus will be a feat to visitors.
  The king lotus with huge leaves which can bear a weight of about 70 kilograms will give visitors un-forgetful experience.
  Come and enjoy them.
