Guangzhou’s mega flower garden

Guangzhou is to build a mega flower garden that will rival the Netherlands’ Keukenhof or Canada’s Butchart Gardens. Scheduled for construction this month, the proposed garden at the southern foothill of Baiyun Mountain, near Luhu Park, has a reserved area of 151 hectares. The first phase of the garden occupies 200 acres and is slated for opening before the October Golden Week holidays this year. The garden will also include China’s largest “skywalk” through the trees, where you can take in the views of Yuexiu Mountain, Huaguo Mountain and Baiyun Mountain. Three metro stations have also been planned for the garden area to allow easy access.
