BEIJING, March 18 -- When spring comes, fileds of rape flowers begin to bloom from the south to the north across China. We recommend 7 places to enjoy the beautiful rape flowers.
1. Shakou Town, Yingde of Qingyuan City, Guangdong Province
Time to See: from early February to end of April
Lying in a remote town of China's southern Guangdong Province, the only rape flower-themed tourist attraction is part of the Mt. Huashui nature reserve inside the Yingde National Forrest Park. As many as 3,000 acres of land are scattered with rape plants, creating a striking scene in Guangdong Province. Before 2005, local residents used to plant rape for cooking oil, and since then the beautiful flowers have developed into a tourist attraction.
