Get lost in seas of flowers (II)
    2017-March-13  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

    AS the sunlight becomes increasingly warm, spring comes rolling around. During this time of the year, the most beautiful things are tender green plants and colorful flowers. But where can we enjoy those stunning landscapes of flowers without leaving Guangdong? Here we have listed a few places in Guangdong Province where you can enjoy magnificent seas of blooming flowers.

    Hongshan Village

    Huadu District, Guangzhou

    广州市花都红山村

    Hongshan Village in Guangzhou’s Huadu District is praised as “the most beautiful mountain village in Guangzhou.” When spring comes around, you can see golden bright canola flowers sprawling across farmlands, forming a seemingly never ending sea of yellow blossoms. It may be one of the most stunning floral sights you’ll ever lay eyes on.

    Add: Timian Town, Huadu District, Guangzhou (广州市花都区梯面镇)

    Best time for appreciating the flowers: Late February to the end of March

    Driving route: Take Guangzhou-Shenzhen Expressway to Guangzhou, then take Guangzhou Ring Expressway (S81) — Guangzhou Airport Expressway — Daqing-Guangzhou Expressway (G45) — G106 — X404 to get to the village

    Pingshan Village

    Dapu, Meizhou

    大埔县大东镇坪山村千亩梯田

    Situated in Pingshan Village, Dadong Town, Dapu County, Meizhou City, Qianmu Terrace (literally 1,000 mu, or 667,000 square meters of terrace) is full of canola flowers that sweep across the hills. Beholding the beautiful golden fields this time of the year is one of the better choices for weekend outings.

    Driving route: Take Guangzhou-Shenzhen Expressway — Guangzhou-Huizhou Expressway — Huizhou-Heyuan Expressway — Meizhou-Heyuan Expressway, then get off the expressway at the Meizhou West exit (Meizhou Xi) to get to Pingshan Qianmu Terrace in Dadong Town, Dapu County

    Canola Flower Valley

    Yingde

    英德沙口镇菜花峪

    Canola Flower Valley is the only tourist attraction in Guangdong with canola flowers as the theme. Every year during the spring season, some 6,000 mu (4 square kilometers) of canola flowers turn the whole region into a vast golden sea. Apart from that, the ancient traditional Hakka folk houses hidden among the flowers are also a great treat to your eyes.

    Add: Along Yingqu Highway (S253), Shakou Town, Yingde City, Qingyuan City, Guangdong Province. It’s 45 kilometers away from the downtown area of Yingde (英德市沙口镇英曲公路S253旁,距英德市区45公里)

    Best time for appreciating the flowers: From the end of February to the beginning of April

    Driving route: Take Guangzhou-Shenzhen Expressway to Guangzhou, then take Huanan Expressway (S303) to Fogang County, take Yingde-Fogang Highway to Yingde City, then take Yingshao Yiji Highway to Shakou Town.
