The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) is inviting local Thai and international tourists to come and experience the amazing sight of the ‘Pink Water Lilies Lake’ at Nong Han Kumphawapi, a freshwater lake in Thailand’s Northeastern province of Udon Thani.
The lake covers an area of 22,500 rai (36 sq. km) mostly in Kumphawapi district and parts of Prachaksinlapakhomand Ku Kaeo districts. It provides fresh water for agriculture and local consumption for Thais living around the lake and is considered one of Thailand’s most important wetlands.
The perfect time to see the flowers in full bloom is each morning from 06.00 to 11.00 Hrs. Tourists can hire personal cruise boats to see the pink water lilies up close and enjoy the natural scenery filled with a variety of fish, birds, wildlife and other aquatic life.
