Thats a Rafflesia…we has been lucky and saw it on an offroad tour in the jungle around Khao Lak.

The Giant Rafflesia, the biggest flower in the world, is a rare sight that can be spotted in just a few countries in Southeast Asia: Thailand, Borneo, Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines. If you are in Thailand, head to Khao Lak and ask at the local tourist agencies if the flower has been seen blooming recently.

What makes the flower even more special is that it takes 8-9 months to grow from bud to bloom, and the dark red petals are alive for a few days to a week only. Afterwards they decay to a black mass and you have to wait another year to see the magical spectacle. The Rafflesia is a parasite with no stem, leaves or roots, growing instead on a tropical vine.
