Lotus flowers are flaunting their best appearance in Anxi Town, Xinjin County, Chengdu.
In ancient China, poets eulogized the dainty flowers and emerald leaves in clear water. The young maids rowing to pick up lotus were also seen as an idyllic scene. Lotus stems up from mud but keeps itself clean; even the root is snow-white though it has been buried in the silt for a long time. Chinese people believe this symbolizes a noble and unsullied personality, and the virginity of young maids as well.
An event themed 2020 lotus season is being taken place at Yuxiangheyun Scenic Area in southern Chengdu's Xinjin County, and will last till September.
Lotus flowers of more than 30 species are in full bloom in the ponds of over 133 hectares.
During the season, poeple are able to appreciate art exhibitions and Sichuan Opera, as well as join poetry competitions and parent-child sports games.
Visitors also have the opportunity to enjoy local snacks and fish-head hotpot.
Admission: free
Metro: Xinping Station, Chengdu Metro Line 10; then take No.G5B bus to the site
Self-drive: search "安西渔乡荷韵景区" via your map app
