Thale Bua Daeng Red Lotus Sea

Red Lotus Sea

 

The correct name is Nong Han lake, but the colloquial term - Red lotus Sea -, however, is very apt!

The lake is about 30 minutes by car from Udon Thani. From late October to March countless red lotus flowers are in bloom.

From the small harbour (GPS coordinates and map at the foot of the page) you can rent a little boat in which one is ferried around the lake on a one-hour tour. The sight of the flowers is spectacular.

 

 

 

You should arrive at the harbour to see the flowers in full bloom before 11am. In the afternoon, the flowers close again until the next morning.

A one-hour boat ride costs 500 baht for up to 10 people. A 40 minute tour costs 350 baht. From Udon Thani buses drive to the lotus lake daily, departing at 7 o'clock in the morning from McDonald's in UD Town. Price per person: 500 baht. (all prices as of December 2014).

It is one of the most amazing places I've seen in Thailand. I wonder why is it not as popular as other locations? I guess people just don't know about it and crowds of tourists spend most of their time on the beaches and in BKK. Here is short video I've recorded at the red lotus lake: http://bit.ly/2RedLotusLake
