19. Everything’s worth celebrating|
Shanghai may pride itself on being cool and cosmopolitan, but giant festivals are no joke in China.
For nature lovers, there’s the Peach Blossom Festival from March 25-April 11 at Nanhui Peach Blossom Village in Pudong, and the International Flower Festival from April 1-30 at Changfeng Park.
On April 5, join hordes of locals for the annual Longhua Temple Fair, which has been held on the third day of the third month of the Lunar Calendar every year since the Ming Dynasty. Legend has it that dragons visit the temple to grant people’s wishes, so come with your requests.
