Lilies in Vientiane, Laos

I'm in Laos right now, so I'll try to post some photos of garden related things. I won't be able to look them up and give their proper names and all that though.

Here are three lovely lilies (? I think) I saw in some pots outside a small hotel. The photos don't really do them justice, their colours were so clear and sparkling they almost looked like artificial flowers.

i think those really are silk flowers. look at the bud, it looks artificial. lotus don't look like that, and waterlillies don't have the center pod like that, only lotus.
