If you ever think about Vietnam, a symbol that comes to mind is the Lotus flower. This flower represents the virgin, the pure beauty of Vietnamese women. This time of the year is Lotus season. People can be seen selling pink and white lotuses on the street or you might catch them growing in a pond in the countryside. Most people who sell them are from the country side. The lotus is just an amazing flower with heaps of meaning which even the Vietnamese don't really fully understand .
You might spend 15,000 Vnd for 10 lotuses at the beginning of the season but almost half that 15 days later. They make your house look special.
