Recommended way to play: There seems to be only one way to play in the Red Lotus Sea, which is to rent a boat to enter the center of the sea of flowers. If you are lucky, try to rent a boat for 2-3 people. Remember to find a boat suitable for posing, there is a wooden boat. The photos are great. When we went there, the boat was gone, so we could only rent a 6-person boat to go in, so there was no chance to lie down and take pictures.
Tim Hi Tips: When the flowering season goes, it will be when the temperature in Thailand is the lowest of the year, around 30 degrees Celsius. It is hot and humid when there is no summer, and the body feels quite comfortable, but you must take sun protection on the lake. The sun is very strong, and the small awning on the boat is far from enough!
