Beizhuang town, Miyun district, Beijing
Best viewing period: From May 1 to May 20
Beizhuang town in suburban Beijing is one of the earliest areas in the city to grow rapeseed flowers. Rapeseed flowers are grown on the banks of Qingshui River, a creek on the upper reaches of the Miyun Reservoir, mountains and villages, creating a very beautiful rural scenery.
Early summer is the best season to visit Beizhuang, where golden rapeseed flowers are in full bloom and visitors can smell their fragrance.
In addition to admiring the beauty of the rapeseed flowers, tourists can enjoy the stunning landscapes of Beizhuang town, the swaying trees and frolicking water birds. Those who enjoy hiking can try climbing the Ming Great Wall nearby.
