First Rafflesia bloom at Khao Sok National Park

The largest flower in the world in Khao Sok National Park

Two days ago we were greatly surprised when a customer of our hotel, showed our manager Son a beautiful picture of the Rafflesia flower taken the same day at the Khao Sok National Park.

The Rafflesia or Bua Phut (บัวผุด) in Thai, is found in the rainforest of southern Thailand, and especially in the Khao Sok National Park.

This parasite plant flourishes and is visible seasonally and it lasts for just one week.
