Wintersweet in Jingguan, Beibei
Jingguan Town has more than 500 years of wintersweet planting history and is one of the three largest wintersweet planting bases in China. It is honored as the “Hometown of Chinese Wintersweet” and “Hometown of Chinese Flowers and Trees”. The entire wintersweet base is about 20,000mu. In Jingguan Town, a grand wintersweet cultural festival is held every year when the wintersweets are in full bloom. In addition, to further enjoy the wintersweet experience, you can taste the wintersweet tea, wintersweet wine, wintersweet noodles and other derivatives to satisfy your taste buds while pleasing your eyes.
Yubei Garden Expo Park
The wintersweets in Garden Expo Park are mainly distributed in the west park. Thousands of wintersweet trees grow on both sides of a two-kilometer footpath, becoming the most vital scenery in the winter of Garden Expo Park. The wintersweets are in full bloom now and yellow flowers cover the entire tree. The flower fragrance also pervades the air.
The Tongliang Jinmei Impression Scenic Area is located in Anquan Village, Dongcheng Sub-district, Tongliang, covering an area of about 3,500mu. There are over 1,000mu stretches of wintersweet trees now, most of which are Suxin wintersweet and Qingkou wintersweet. It is a idyllic rural scenic area. From every December to February of the next year, the wintersweets are in full bloom, making beautiful scenery in the winter.
Taibaiyan Park is located in the north urban area of Wanzhou, about 400 meters high. The Immortal Poet Li Bai once played chess on the cliff, hence the name. The legend of “Baiyan Xianji” has been spread since ancient times and it is one of the eight famous sceneries of Wanzhou. At the park on the top of Taibaiyan, there are nearly 500 wintersweet trees. The wintersweets there mingle with the profound ethnic features of Taibaiyan and hold more of the cultural spirit than those in other places. (Translated by Huang Juan, Fathom Language Limited)
