More than 10km from the city centre, the lotus ponds in Hoa Son commune, Hoa Vang district, in Da Nang city are now in full bloom, giving the peaceful spot a poetic beauty.

Photographers often come to the ponds from early in the morning to snap beautiful images. 

According to local people, the lotus season usually lasts just 3 or 4 months but is the main source of income for local farmers.

With a large, open space, lotus ponds also have a lot of potential for tourism development and services for visitors./.
