The Chinese solar calendar divides the year into 24 solar terms. Grain in Ear, (Chinese: 芒种), the 9th solar term, begins on June 6 this year and ends on June 20. Grain in Ear signifies the full blossom of various flowers, especially the best period for appreciating blooming lotuses. In Foshan, Asian Arts Park might be the best-known scenic spot for tourists to appreciate the most diversified lotuses, among which, the twin lotus is the most unique one. Fascinated by lotus and the floral scent, you are more than welcome to have fun in the park.
Located in Chancheng District of Foshan, Asian Arts Park covers an area of 40 hectares. With a green vein characterized by aquatic forests and dragon boat race, the design concept of the park highlights the essence of Lingnan culture. Meanwhile, through the design elements, such as architecture, sculpture, plants and bridges, an art garden with Asian art style is created.
It's worth noting that the artificial spray system at Asian Arts Park returned on June 3rd, and the enchanting wonderland is now open for visitors. Don't miss the opportunity to snap some stunning photos!
