Ride a Tern and roam the lotus pond in Xintian to enjoy the flowers

Summer is here, and hibiscus flowers are blooming in the famous lotus pond in San Tin, Yuen Long. Cycling thousands of miles alone, take the Tern to explore the rural roads of fish ponds.

The editor chose to ride the small Tern this time to enjoy the flowers in a leisurely way. Although San Tin Tsuen Road is a road rather than a cycling track, because there are fish ponds on both sides of the cycling road, the environment is very quiet and there are basically no vehicles passing by. The author took a leisurely bike ride around the fish pond, overlooking the prosperous high-rise buildings in the mainland.

Next to the fish pond, there is also the newly opened Xintian flood storage tank, which is equipped with a floating solar power generation system to supply power to the Xintian rainwater pumping station facilities.

San Tin is one of the most secluded lotus ponds in Hong Kong.

After viewing the ecological floating island, we rode forward and came to the corner. It was lined with green trees and was very cool. Many dragon friends brought long and short fires and concentrated on taking photos by the pool. It turned out that they had arrived at the famous Xintian Lotus Pond. . The lotus gradually blooms in June, and it is elegant and refined. No wonder it attracts dragon friends to take photos. Lotus is a perennial herbaceous flower, also known as lotus, hibiscus, etc. What you can see at the scene is that the long lotus pond is covered with green duckweeds, which are densely distributed and very spectacular. Some of the lotus flowers were in bloom, pink and pink, very elegant. The editor got drunk and walked to the edge of the pool to take pictures.
