Bangkok has beautiful water bodies all over. Especially in the outskirts you would suddenly find a placid lake, surrounded by tall buildings or a garden. In these ponds lilies bloom in myriad colours- red,yellow, blue and white.
The ponds are imitated and recreated in miniature form by planting lilies in earthen pots. these are put in temples and quite a large number of such creations are there in the temple of the Emerald Buddha.
It would be interesting to know how many ponds and minor lakes are there in and around Bangkok.
