Lotus lake UdonThani.

Red Lotus Sea, or Talay Bua Daeng. We’d like to share this beautiful natural attraction in honor of the upcoming Valentine’s Day holidays in Feb 2016
Red Lotus Sea, Ban Diam, Kumphawadpi Reserve. The Red Lotus Sea (although most of the flowers are more pink or crimson than they are red) is about 45km south east from the Udon Thani ring road, at Lake Nong Han on the banks of Ban Diam, in the Kumphawadpi Reserve. The beauty of the lake is best witnessed in the low season, between November and late February. The Red aquatic flowers begin to bloom in October, following the rainy season, reaching full bloom in December through to late January. The best time of day to visit is between 6.00am until around 10.00am. If the day is cloudy (as it was when I recently visited), a visit at any time should provide the best display as the blooms remain open when the sun is not bearing down on them.

Other than the vast numbers of flowers present, the Red Lotus Sea also holds the position of the world’s second strangest lakes by Travel & Leisure. The lake covers a large area, (about 68 square kilometers) being 15km long and 5km at the widest point.
When is the Best Time to Visit the Red Lotus Sea?
The Red Lotus Sea showcases its beauty during Thailand’s cool season, but the peak blooms occur from beginning of December to the end of February. The best time of day to see the lotus blossoms is between 6:00 am until 11:00 am or 12:00 pm.

We offer Accommodation and Visits to the Lake with free Airport pick up and Return.
