During mid-summer, the Houhai Lake in Shichahai is covered with different floral colors of lotus flowers in full blossom. The view is best enjoyed from Lotus Market, an ancient and touristy market that’s located in the west bank of Shichahai packed with bars and restaurants. There’s a 300-metre-long plank road built beside the water, which allows tourists to see the flowers from a close distance. To beat the crowds, there’re also electric and pedal boats for rent at the wharf of Lotus Market.
