Sea of gold floods, 'town of a thousand islands'

Updated: 2018-04-10

  

  Wuyuan county has long been renowned for its sprawl of golden rape flowers that covers its plains and terraced hillsides over an area of nearly 70 square kilometers.

  The flowering phase this year is estimated to last for at least 30 days, from March 15 to April 15, while the best time to appreciate them is between March 15 and April 10.

  Rape flowers in tourism resorts such as Sixiyan village and Rainbow Bridge in eastern Wuyuan are in full blossom from March 5 thanks to the warmer climate there.

  Visitors can take a cable car, helicopter or hotair balloon to get a bird's-eye view of the blossoms and surrounding picturesque scenery. A glass boardwalk set 120 meters above the ground is also open to the visitors who want to walk above the sea of flowers.

  Two ticket packages, 210 yuan ($30) for a two-day pass and 150 yuan for one-day pass, are available to visitors, allowing travelers to visit 12 scenic spots in and around Wuyuan.
