Gaochun district, Nanjing, Jiangsu province
Best viewing period: From early March to early April
In early spring, golden rapeseed flowers bloom in the Gaochun International Cittaslow and the Youzi Mountain National Forest Park in Gaochun district, Nanjing, East China’s Jiangsu province. The sea of golden flowers can be seen encircling villages, tea gardens, bamboo forests, and wheat fields. A beautiful sight.
When the breeze blows, the flowers exude a faint fragrance. Under the azure sky and white clouds, the flowers attract bees and big snails in front of the Hui-style buildings.
The Gaochun International Cittaslow boasts more than 666.67 hectares of rapeseed flowers. In order to allow tourists to get closer to the flowers for snapping photos, winding paths are reserved for them. Tourists can find the best angle to pose for photos and share them on social media.
