Red Lotus Lake or Tung Bua Daeng in Thai, is just that.. A big lake full of red lotus. The lake is located south of Udonthani in Northeast Thailand (Isaan) .
Taking good photos and videos at places like this, one should think about the time year flowers are blooming and where the sun will be in the sky. I was there on January 2nd and the lotuses were in full bloom and the sky was clear and blue; a great time to go. I arrived at 7:30 in the morning, in the middle of morning magic hour. Perfect!
Getting there: there are a number of piers to contract boats to tour the lake. The pier I was recommended was excellent and will put a link here and below.
The boats: there are two basic styles of boats, small two person boats (300 baht for two people) and group boats (100 baht per person). The small boats are the longtail boats and are not easy getting on and off if you have bad knees ?.
The boat trip: The boat will stop at a handful of places to see the lotuses up close but another thing to watch for is the acrobatic black and white sparrows playing in the lotus flowers.
