Golden Sea In China: The Famous Canola Fields
These sparkling images, that look more like a golden sea, are of yellow rapeseed flowers, also known as canola, attract thousands of tourists every year (during the blossoming season) to Luoping, a small county in eastern China. The exquisite beauty of the yellow canola flowers encompassing your full visual range gives a remarkable and everlasting experience.
Apart from external angelic scenes, the canola flowers are planted for famous canola cooking oil. The area is packed with panoramic mountains like Jinjifeng (Golden Chicken Peak) and Shiwandashan (Hundred Thousand Hills). One of these hills, which is the highest, staging a hundred-year-old temple Lingyi, can give you the the best view of all these fields. The ideal time to plan a visit here is around February through March. [Images via wherecoolthingshappen.com]
