According to The Nation, the red lotuses only blossom in December and January every year.

As such, the lake has reportedly been been attracting hundreds of local and foreign tourists daily, all thanks to its spectacular scenery and the current cool weather.

The Red Lotus Lake is so popular, in fact, it was named the world’s second strangest lake by news site CNN.

According to this website, a boat ride would cost you around 300-500 Baht (RM41-RM68), depending on the route you take.
