Every year, China holds a Peony Festival around the middle of April.
Peony, representing elegance and dignity, enjoys the reputation of
“King of Flower Kingdom” and is considered as China’s national flower.
The Luoyang peony has a history of over 1500 years, and now boasts more
than 1200 kinds. Peony was named the city flower of Luoyang in 1982. And
the Luoyang Peony Festival has been an annual event in every spring
ever since 1983.
During the festival, Luoyang city is
fully alive and looks like an ocean of peonies, with fantastic colors
ranging from the original red to the supplemented white, yellow, purple
and even the rarest dark. Among all the species, “Yaohuang” and “Weizi”
peonies are the most noble ones and known as the “king” and “queen”.
Apart from the peonies displays, there are a wide range of performances
and activities: the dramatic opening ceremony, the peonies photography
contest, lantern fairs, the exhibitions of calligraphy and others.
This year its going to be held on April from April 16-28. The trip cost from $3,088.00 per person double occupancy (single supplement $700.00)
China would be a great trip to make.
