Nanjing's plum blossom festival

Just a train ride away from Shanghai, Nanjing's plum blossoms go from strength to strength.

It's China's answer to Japan's tourist-magnet cherry blossom festival; but the relatively scant crowds beneath Nanjing's plum blossoms mean you get more time and space to smell the flowers.

Stretching over a month in early spring each year, the festival showcases 35,000 plum blossom trees in 120 varieties -- including China's oldest -- scattered in a 250-acre park on Purple Mountain.
