Time for sightseeing as flowers in bloom

THE flowering season is upon us and cherry, also called sakura, will be the highlight of this year's spring outings.

Though it's unlikely to go to Japan to see its clouds of sakura blossoms due to the nuclear crisis, locals can still admire the flower in Shanghai Botanical Garden where cherry trees are expected to blossom this week and last around the Qingming Festival on April 5.

The Shanghai Sightseeing Bus Center is now selling several packages for flower fanciers to see blooms and blossoms in the city's suburbs and in neighboring provinces.

Peach blossoms in Pudong District, rape flowers in Fengxian District, and cherry blossoms in Wuxi, Jiangsu Province are all on its package list, the center said.

People can go to the center's official Website,, to book a tour. The site is in Chinese language only.
