Every year, in the middle of June’s sweltering heat, lotus ponds around Hanoi such as West Lake, Xuan Dinh, and Dong Anh are blanketed with the beautiful lotus flowers of diverse colors, inviting photographers and young people, especially girls to take photos and create instagramable moments.
Every June, the blossoming lotus ponds invite Hanoians visit and take pictures. The lotus flowers miraculously match with the traditional Vietnamese costume of women, the Ao Dai. Girls in Ao Dai of all colors and patterns flock to the lotus ponds to take memorable snapshots.
