The 2018 Lotus Festival themed ‘Legend of a Flower’ opened at Quoc Hoc Hue High School for the Gifted in the central city of Hue on June 29.

The major stage is designed as a miniature lotus lake where a show of traditional long dresses with lotus patterns will be held along with music performances. 

Stalls introduced products made from lotus and are designed with materials such as bamboo, lotus leaves and flowers. Proceeds from an auction of paintings will be used to support poor households. Demonstration of traditional crafts such as embroidering painting and conical hat making also attracted visitors. 

Deputy Director of the provincial Department of Tourism Nguyen Van Phuc said lotus holds a special value in the lives of local residents. Lotus seed has long been considered good for health with rich nutrition. In particular, lotus seed in Tinh Tam lake is among top 50 Vietnamese specialties voted by the Viet Nam Records Organisation. 

According to the history, lotus grown in Tinh Tam lake is used to cook specialties for the Kings during the Nguyen dynasty. Thanks to rich alluvial soil, lotus seed here tastes delicious and sweet, different from those grown in other areas.
