Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

Plan your Hangzhou tour in spring? So where is the best place to feel and touch spring in Hangzhou? Actually Hangzhou is a garden where you can find numerous places dotted with blooming spring flowers on the streets, in the city parks and in the surrounding hills. You are immersed in the sea of blossoms when you come to Hangzhou in spring.

Prince Bay Park (Taiziwan Park ) is oft-lauded as the most popular place to see and feel the coming of spring in Hangzhou with its beautiful tulips and sakura ( cherry flowers ) and poetic landscapes.

Over 1000 cherry trees fit in with 45 kinds of tulips planted on the elegantly set landscapes – lakes, bridges, pavilions and gardens. When you raise your heads, you view the white cherry flowers; when you look down, you see the colorful tulips blossoms – red, yellow, white and more.

Where is Prince Bay Park?
The park is set on the natural hilly land on the southwest of West Lake, just across the southern end of Su Causeway.

When to Visit Prince Bay Park?
Prince Park is open 24 hours a day and 365 days a year. Each season has its own charming features. But spring is the best time to visit Prince Bay Park to view the blooming cherry blossoms and tulips blooms. The best time is from March 20 to Apring 10.

How to get to Prince Bay Park?
For the tulip and cherry season, the park is very much crowded with hordes of tourists. Just try to avoid coming here on the weekends. Come to the park either in the early morning or later afternoon to skip the crowds. You may take the bus lines: 51, 52, 334, Y6, 87, 315,
314 and 4, getting off at the station of Su Causeway.

Yesterday late afternoon, together with my wife and sister in law, we strolled in Prince Bay Park, fascinated by the traditional landscapes rife with blooming cherry and tulip flowers.

Though the park is sprawling and spacious, some scenic areas are still very crowded with people struggling with their cameras and iphone camera taking photos of the charming blossoms.

Below are some of the pictures taken during our short trip to Prince Bay Park.
