At the ticket-free wetland park off Zhufeng Avenue in Jing'an Town, 12,000 sqm (3 acres) of lotus flowers are now in full bloom. The best season to admire the beauty of lotus flowers is from June to August, while the best time of day to see them is in the morning, according to a staff member.
A lotus pond located around 50 m (55 yd) away from the village's archway also allows people to get a close look at lotus flowers with free admission.
