Wengyuan: The Land of Peach Blossoms

图片1_副本.jpg

Wengyuan, a small county about a two-and-a-half-hour drive from Guangzhou, is situated near East Shaoguan city, Guangdong.

The county is most famous for its 500-year history of planting peach groves, which can still be viewed along the area’s highways and mountainous roads.

When spring arrives, a sea of peach flowers arises among the huge rocks, that, when viewed from a distance, looks like a Chinese ink painting.

From February to March, the county holds the second Peach Flowers Festival – which makes for a perfect weekend escape from the noise of the city!
