China is packed with internationally famous tourist sites. We all know about The Great Wall, The Forbidden City and most people have heard about the Summer Palace. However, it also has hundreds of massive, amazing and sometimes bizarre spots that are well-visited by Chinese tourists, but are virtually unknown to the western world.
Stumbling upon these attractions is one of the best parts of traveling in China. Who knew just outside of Harbin there are acres and acres of flowers? If this was in Canada, it would be an international tourist attraction and would be well known to anyone living nearby. But since China has so much to do and see with 1000s of years of history to explore, this place is barely a blip on the radar in the grand scheme of Chinese tourism.
Less tourists meant more room to frolic in the flowers for us!
