The Blue Lotus Water Garden holds its annual Lotus Flower Season which features thousands of Lotus and Water Lily flower blooms of many different varieties spread over 50,000 square meters (14 acres) of ponds and ornamental lakes set in a tropical garden. Some of the flowers stand six feet out of the water with flower heads the size of dinner plates.
New features in 2015/16 will include giant lotus flower sculpture fountains, improved plant pavilions and more exotic floral garden bed displays. And for the kids, a Lotus Fairy Garden.
