March, a Feast of Canola in Luoping

As spring is approaching to the southern China, canola in Luoping is blooming this month. Owing to its landscape and climate, canola in Luoping blooms earlier and is distinctive from that in other areas.

  


Canola is seen everywhere at the countryside in southern China. Most of them bloom at the end of March or the beginning of April. However, canola in Luoping is in full blossom at the mid of March and last to first half of April.

In the misty morning, it is ideal to look out over apanorama of canola fields and hills. Sunrises and sunsets make the vista more charming. During spring, the sun rises at 7:00-7:30 and sets at 16:00-18:00.
