Peach festival offers plenty of fun

SHANGHAI'S first Peach Tasting Festival was launched in the Pudong New Area yesterday, the city's tourism authority said.

The festival will complement the Peach Flower Festival, which has been held annually for two decades.

Tourists will be able to pick their own peaches in suburban orchards during the festival.

Pudong International Travel Service Center has organized several tours around the tasting festival, which runs until August 20, and they range in price from 88 yuan (US$13) to 238 yuan per person.

Tour options include a visit to Shanghai Wildlife Park to see the 10 giant pandas on loan to the city for the World Expo.

Participants can choose a tour package that includes stops at Xinchang Ancient Town, Donghai Bridge and Dishui Lake, the biggest man-made fresh water lake in China.

Other activities include crayfish fishing, a bamboo raft ride, and target shooting.
