One of the most famous cherry blossom festivals is currently running at Yuyuantan Park. Home to over 3,000 cherry trees, it’s the perfect place to celebrate the long-awaited arrival of Spring.

“Yuyuantan Park is the place where you can see more cherry blossom in the city. Flowers bloom earlier than other places, and there are various species here,” said one visitor, adding that she comes every year. “The cherry blossom this year is great because the climate is good, without any heavy wind or rain.”

The blossom season, including cherry, peach and plum, is usually best between late March and mid-April, so make sure you get out and see spring in all its glory while you have the chance!
