Situated in Tainan City, Baihe has earned itself the nickname “Lotusville” for its wondrous year-round beauty. This rural village is also an excellent place to visit for both education and recreation. During spring, summer, and fall the leaves of the lotuses are wonderfully green as the flowers themselves begin to blossom; between June and August every year, the Baihe Lotus Festival attracts huge numbers of people to admire the flowers, with the scent of lotuses filling the air, particularly in the three most iconic lotus areas of Liantan, Dajhu, and Jhumen. In addition to the lotuses, Baihe is also home to a rich history and wealth of tourist destinations, as well as the Guanzihling mud pools. The township offers opportunities for travel and recreation, and the festival bolsters this with events by artists in residence, lotus picking, demonstrations of the lotus tea ceremony, lotus painting, lotus-based meals, storytelling by local elders, and the wonderful natural environment, including fireflies. All of this makes for a colorful festival of lotuses, and a place so delightful you’ll never want to leave.
