The Macao Lotus Flower Festival, an annual summer event, showcases the beautiful perennial aquatic plant found far and wide throughout China. Every year, the festival highlights a particular lotus flower species, which admirers can see at the Taipa Houses-Museum and in the Suzhou-inspired Lou Lim Ieoc Garden among other places. Potted lotuses can also be found in major parks, on many streets and in popular sightseeing spots around Macau, a colourful and enchanting reminder of the centrepiece the lotus plays in the design of the Macao SAR flag. Seasonal lotus-themed cuisine also makes a tasty appearance in some local Chinese restaurants!
