Precious Petals: Visit Shenyang’s Lotus Festival
Need an excuse to escape the city? I’ll give you one: The Lotus Festival at Fairy Lake. Walk along the beautiful lake with thousands of lotus flowers and it almost feels like you’re in – you guessed it - a fairy tale!
Also called Shenyang’s West Lake, the area holds The Lotus Festival every July and August where thousands of visitors come to see lotus flowers in bloom and soak up the area’s natural beauty. The festival also features music concerts for visitors who want to max out the afternoon.
One more thing. At this time of year, hordes of exotic birds flock to the lake. It’s quite a sight!
