Cherry Blossoms in Beijing

During late March and throughout April, spring usually pays a visit to Beijing, bringing with it a colorful display of cherry blossoms. If you’re in China’s capital city during this lovely time of year, make sure to visit Yuyuantan Park to see the trees in full bloom.

While you’ll find cherry blossom trees scattered throughout the city, Yuyuantan Park is famous for them, having more than 2,000 trees of more than 20 varieties — the highest concentration anywhere in Beijing. The first 180 cherry trees planted in the park were gifted to China by Japan in 1973.
