The amazingly beautiful lotuses and waterlilies are in full bloom at Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG). Come and enjoy them.
XTBG is holding a lotus-viewing festival from July 1 to August 31. The festival features family fun games, arts, and the amazingly beautiful lotus flowers and waterlilies in full bloom. The venue is mainly at the Palm Garden and Aquatic Garden.
The unique beauty of lotus and water lilies is showcased in many different settings. Visitors will be treated to the breath-taking sights of hundreds of potted lotuses and water lilies, in addition to exhibitions, floral demonstrations, guided tours, children’s activities, etc.
The giant royal water lily, or king lotus, will be the most eye-catching plant. Featured with huge leaves which can bear considerable weight while floating on the water, the giant water lily leaves will function as “small boats to float children weighing less than 30kg”.
Across XTBG in the coming few weeks, in lakes and ponds (with the royal water lily pond most attractive), the massive buds of water lilies and lotus will open in the dawn and feast eyes of the visitors.
