Summer is incomplete without the lotus

    What do you think is the best thing can represent summer? Iced watermelon, soda, swimming pool or the steamy but tasty hot pot? Apart from these fabulous things, I believe that visiting the lotus pond is another must-do in summer.

    The lotus flowers wave in the morning breeze, and its pink petals look even brighter under the scorching sun at noon. After raining, water drops glisten on the lotus leaves. When you're beside the lotus pond, you're immersed in the fragrance of the lotus and lost track of time, which is one of the reason why it is so attractive. 

    Just as Amway comes with an after sale service, here are some tips on lotus-seeking trip in Chengdu.
