The first Peach Blossom Festival took place in Shanghai in 1991. Since then this festival has become a brand mark of the city. Every year in March you can see thousands of peach trees starting to bloom. This is when the city is flooded with the sweet smell of this marvelous tree.
Also, this is the period when people flock to local parks to see the beauty of peach trees blooming. One of the typical districts of Shanghai where you can find a lot of peach trees is Pudong. The most popular Pudong parks are Shanghai Nanhui Datuan Peach Blossom Park, Century Park, Nanhui Peach Blossom Village.
During the festival, the noisy city of Shanghai seems to calm down a bit as people enjoy this time of recreation.
