The cool season is a great time to see a floating carpet of red lotuses in the Northeastern province of Udon Thani



For three months of the year, from December to February, visitors to the Northeastern province of Udon Thani can witness the amazing ‘red lotus sea’ at Nong Han Kum Pavapi, a fresh water lake.

The perfect time to see the red lotuses in full bloom is in the morning from 6 am to around 12 pm. Tourists can hire a boat to get up close to the red lotuses and enjoy the natural scenery of the fresh water resource with its variety of fish, birds, wildlife and aquatic plants.

To encourage more weekday visits during this three-month period, the TAT in collaboration with Udon Thani Province and Udon Thani Tourism Business Association, Thai AirAsia and UD Town shopping complex, is offering special privileges for passengers travelling on Thai AirAsia. By presenting a Thai AirAsia boarding pass, tourists are entitled to a 50 per cent discount on a half-day tour of the “Red Lotus Sea”. The offer is valid from December 5, 2017, until February 28, 2018.

Besides the “Red Lotus Sea”, Udon Thani is well known for the archaeological wonders of Ban Chiang where the world’s first Bronze Age civilization is believed to have flourished more than 5,000 years ago.

Udon Thani can be reached by bus, train and air, with daily schedules from Bangkok’s bus and train terminals and Don Mueang International Airport.
