5 places to enjoy spring scenery in China

Apr.10, 2023


The cold winter is finally coming to an end, and spring is a season full of new energy and hope! Spring in China is very colorful and absolutely worth exploring. Trekking and viewing flowers are arguably the keywords for spring.

Today, I would like to recommend 5 places for exploring spring in China. They all have unique spring scenery and are located in various regions of China, so you can easily make travel plans based on your own needs.

Let's get started!

No.1 江苏扬州 / Yangzhou, Jiangsu






Yangzhou is located in the middle of Jiangsu Province, at the intersection of the Yangtze River and the Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal. The history of Yangzhou can be traced back to 486 BC. Here, not only can you feel the gentle scenery of south China style water town, but also experience the depth of history. 

Yangzhou is also a great poetic place that has an unshakable place in the hearts of ancient Chinese poets. Li Bai, a famous poet of the Tang Dynasty, once wrote, "故人西辞黄鹤楼/old friend bids farewell to me at Yellow Crane Tower, 烟花三月下扬州/he heads down to Yangzhou in scenic third month". This poem has filled people with a beautiful imagination of spring in Yangzhou from ancient times till present. Therefore, it is a very good choice to check out Yangzhou in spring time!

The best place to visit in Yangzhou during spring is the Slender West Lake. Some people say if you travel to Yangzhou and don't visit the Slender West Lake, it makes you feel like you have never been to Yangzhou. The beautiful spring colors of the Slender West Lake lies in its winding water, like a fair lady, beautiful and graceful. The strongest spring colors of the Slender West Lake are on the petals of the peach blossoms, on the green willow branches, in the sunlight, and in the dreamy mist. The spring water of the Slender West Lake is the eye of Yangzhou, the aura of Yangzhou.

No.2 湖北武汉 / Wuhan, Hubei






Wuhan is located in the eastern part of the Jianghan Plain and the middle reaches of the Yangtze River, where the Yangtze and Han rivers meet to form the three towns of Wuchang, Hankou and Hanyang across the river.

In spring, when cherry blossoms are in fully blooming, is the most beautiful time in Wuhan. From mid-March to early April every year, there are more than 500,000 different kinds of cherry trees blooming throughout the city, and more than 20 large and small places to enjoy cherry blossoms, so it can be said that Wuhan is the best choice to enjoy the cherry blossoms during spring in China.

Among many cherry blossoms viewing spots, the most prestigious is Wuhan University. Wuhan University is surrounded by the East Lake water, sitting on Luojia Mountain, with the classic style of architecture and the humanistic heritage of the university, viewing cherry blossoms becomes especially romantic.

No.3 浙江覆卮山 / Fuzhi Mountain, Zhejiang






Fuzhi Mountain is located in Shaoxing City, Zhejiang Province. In spring, the most beautiful scenery here is the rape flower fields. The sea of rape blossoms covering Fuzi Mountain is spread out in terraces all over the mountain. It is spectacular from the top of the mountain to the bottom of the valley. With the spring breeze, the sea of flowers flows down the mountainside like rolling waves, forming a magnificent landscape painting.

No.4 西藏林芝 / Nyingchi, Tibet





Nyingchi is located in southeastern Tibet, in the middle and lower reaches of the Yarlung Tsangpo River. In Tibetan, Nyingchi means "the throne of the sun". Unlike other parts of Tibet, the climate here is humid, and Nyingchi is famous for its rich vegetation and well-preserved pristine nature.

Every spring, Nyingchi holds a peach blossom festival. At this time of the year, the whole area will transform into a beautiful senery of peach blossoms. The snow-capped peaks in the distance are covered with white snow, while the peach blossoms compete with each other in the near distance. The pink peach blossoms are infinitely soft in the embrace of the towering snow-capped mountains.

Nyingchi's peach blossom is not shy and gentle, it is beautiful, beautiful in its "wild", beautiful in the open and not pretentious. It seems to carry a kind of transcendent temperament, even if the snowy mountains are soaring and spectacular, but also can not let people move away from the pink.

No.5 贵州毕节 / Bijie, Guizhou






Bijie is located in the northwestern part of Guizhou Province. Bijie in spring is a wonderland where azaleas are in full bloom. Bijie's Azalea Garden is the largest, most diverse and best-preserved original azalea forest belt in the world, with all five subgenera and more than 60 species of azalea in the world. Strolling in such a sea of azaleas, I can't think of anything better!

I hope these recommendations help when choosing your destination for spring trips. I wish you a beautiful and adventurous spring in 2023!
