Hanoians enchanted by white lotus flowers

West Lake is famed for fragrant lotus flowers that captivate the hearts of all Hanoians. Twenty kilometres from the hustle and bustle of the centre of Vietnam’s capital, however, another lotus lake also attracts a host of visitors coming to take the perfect photo.



Ms Tam takes time every summer to capture perfect moments of lotus flowers. With each passing year, however, West Lake becomes increasingly crowded and this year she has found another great spot for photos.

This unique white lotus pond is in Tam Hung commune, Thanh Oai district, about 20km from the centre of Hanoi. In order to capture the best and most pristine moments, visitors often come to the lotus pond quite early in the morning.

The lotus pond is completely covered in white and its pristine beauty is depicted in many poems and other works of art./.
