The 20-hectare lotus lake in Dongguan’s Qiaotou Township is covered with golden rape flowers as it would be in spring.
March and April are the best months to admire the beauty of Rape Flowers in most Chinese countryside areas. However, residents can now enjoy it without having to leave the city. The 20-hectare lotus lake in Dongguan’s Qiaotou Township is covered with golden rape flowers as it would be in spring.
To enrich its tourist spots during winter, the local government sowed rape flower seeds across the lotus lake last September when most of the lotus blossoms were withering. At present, these rape flowers are in full bloom.
