We have no idea why Thailand’s Red Lotus Sea isn’t a popular tourist attraction yet. It might actually be the most romantic boat ride we’ve ever done – and clearly a lot of fun. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Why you should visit: – PINK FLOWERS – Romantic – Unique & photogenic – Barely any tourists – Did we mention pink flowers? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And you’re in luck: from next week, it’s the perfect season to go check it out! Have we sparked your interest yet? Make sure to read our detailed guide to the pink lake on onceuponajrny.com! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ FUN FACT: these pink flowers aren’t lotuses! If you look closely you see the flowers don’t float on the water, but rise above it. So technically, they’re pink tropical water lilies. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #redlotussea #thailand_allshots #thailandonly #globalhotshotz #udonthani #pinkflowers #worldplaces #redlotus #wonderfuldestinations #redlotuslake #beautifuldestinations #doyoutravel #bdbucketlist #amazingthailand #thailand #travelcouple #coupletravel #girlcouple #lesbiantravel #discoveryoursmile #ExpediaPic #keepexploring #goplaces #passionpassport #fantastic_earth #eindevandewereld #3opreis
