Updated at Monday, 12 Jun 2017, 09:34
The lotus season in Hanoi starts from June and lasts 3 months. The most popular places with lotus flowers are West Lake in Hanoi. Every morning from 5a.m to 7a.m, the local residents, who own the lotus lakes, tour around the lakes on very small boats and pick both flowers and leaves, following the orders from their clients who are waiting on the bank.
Any business people, who want to buy lotus flowers cheaply, go there to buy flowers directly from the lake owners, then sell them at their shops in Hanoi.
The lotus is regarded by Vietnamese as one of the four graceful flowers and plants, along with the pine, bamboo and chrysanthemum for a reason.
Seeing a lotus, people often feel as if their entire body and soul are purified by the subtle fragrance of lotus which wiggles its way into local people's life. To Vietnamese people, the lotus is more than just a flower.
Lotus flower, despite being nurtured in mud, still grow out pure and glowing, like morning dew from early morning or water in springtime. It is also the symbol of purity, commitment and optimism for the future. The elegance of the lotus is often cited in the Vietnamese folk songs and poems.
In addition to its delicate beauty, lotus plants also play various roles in Vietnamese cuisine. Young lotus stems are used as a salad ingredient. The stamens can be dried and used to impart a fragrant scent to tea leaves. The lotus seeds can be eaten raw or boiled until soft and made into a paste, or boiled with dried longans and rock sugar to make a sweet soup.
