Spring Flower Fair in Guangzhou, China

If you were in Guangzhou, China today, on the eve of the Chinese New Year,  you’d know where the people like to go and shop and be festive. It’s the Flower Fair at the city center. Shopping fresh flowers and other festival-related items at the Flower Fair during the week running up to the Chinese New Year is an age-old custom in Guangzhou, a city also known as the “Flower City”.  The flower fair usually starts a few days before the Spring Festival and reaches its climax on the New Year’s Eve, when huge crowds of people would surge to the fair after their reunion dinner. Time has changed, though, and nowadays there are a lot of attractions on the New Year’s Eve other than the flower fair. But the flower fair is still a must-visit attraction during this time of the year.

Below are some of the pictures I took at the flower fair of 2010.

Finally, let me wish you, my blog readers, a very happy and healthy Year of Snake:

Greetings-2013
