Go Thap Lotus Field
Update: Sep 23, 2016
Visitors are often attracted to the Go Thap area in My Hoa Commune, Thap Muoi District thanks to its aromatic and beautiful lotus ponds and unique specialties of the Dong Thap Muoi region.

Lotus ponds there have a total area of 20ha and are among the most attractive destinations for visitors to Dong Thap. Leaf-roofed huts that can house 15 people are built every 50m to provide places for tourists to rest and relax. These huts are connected by wooden paths. There is a high tower in the middle of the pond. From the top of it one can see spacious rice paddies. 

Besides admiring the great beauty and alluring aroma of lotus, tourists can rent Ao dai (Vietnamese traditional long dress), Ao ba ba (traditional silk costumes of South Viet Nam women) and Non la (conical leaf hat) to take photos. Tourists can also rent a boat to sail to the middle of the ponds and pick lotus flowers, go fishing or experience a farmers’ life.

Nguyen Hoang Phuong, a resident of Cao Lanh City, is a native of the region but still finds it intriguing to visit the place regularly. It is a safe and peaceful area for his family to enjoy during weekends.

Going to Go Thap lotus field, visitors can learn about the area when talking with farmers who are kind and hospitable. It is also famous for specialties like grilled snakeheads, lotus rice, boiled crabs, grilled chicken, braised cichlids, lotus tea and lotus milk.
