Located on Shachong South Road in Guiyang's Nanming district, the garden is a national 3A-level scenic area which is engaged in medicinal plant conservation, research, popularizing the science of botany and sightseeing, among other things.

The garden has about ten varieties of cherry blossom trees which have white, pink, red and light green flowers.

The garden's parking space is very limited, so visitors can also take bus lines No 9, 11, 13, 21, 42, 43, 50 and 57 to get to the garden.

Making circular fans with dried flowers is one of the activities on offer during the cherry blossom festival. [Photo/]
