Baihe Lotus Baihe is counted as one of the seven major ancient districts of Tainan City, and intensive planting in recent years has also made it the largest producer of lotus seeds and lotus roots in all of Taiwan. This town has been given the name "Lotus Country" because of its unending expanses of lotus fields, which give it some of the island's most unique farm scenery. The lotuses blossom most luxuriantly from June to September each year, and at this time the town organizes a series of Lotus Festival activities. If you want to see lotus blossoms at their loveliest, you will have to get up very early in the morning to view them and to savor the sweet rural life of southern Taiwan. When you've observed your fill of lotus blossoms, go to the Lotus Culture Information Hall and learn how to shell lotus seeds, grind lotus-root powder, and make lotus tea; if you get hungry, you can fill yourself up with a carefully designed lotus banquet. Afterwards you can make a side trip to Guanziling and see the unique flaming spring and the famous temples there, and then travel on to the sights of the Baihe Reservoir. If you are a hot-spring addict you can bathe in the soothing waters of the Guanziling mineral springs.
