Lotus flowers are now in full bloom, with Vietnamese people visiting the lotus lake in Ninh Binh these days.
Lotus is an aquatic plant which lives in the water. Notably, each part of the lotus flower can be utilized in different ways to Vietnamese people. For instance, the lotus flower is usually used for decorative purpose and for making scented tea, the seeds are commonly used for cooking, while the leaves are used to wrap local sticky rice.
