Hangzhou’s lotus charm

In summer , the lotus flowers in West Lake area in Hangzhou of East China’s Zhejiang province are blossoming and enticing thousands of tourists.

The best time to appreciate lotus is from 5 to 6 am, when each lotus stands elegantly against morning glow.

As the Chinese poem goes, “Green lotus leaves outspread as far as boundless sky. Pink lotus blossoms take from sunshine a new dye.”
