As the weather gets warmer, we also witness the city begin to bloom. From the golden rape flowers in the Eight-Diagram Field to the multi-colored Dutch tulips in Prince’s Bay Park, Hangzhou vibrantly blossoms its way through spring.

Rape Flowers

Recently, some of the rape flowers have started to bloom and it is estimated that after the spring equinox, the Eight-Diagram Field will be a sea of golden rape flowers, which makes the perfect setting during springtime.
