Plum Blossom Exhibition at Shanghai Century Park (世纪花园梅花展)

Spring in Shanghai is all about Plum Blossom (梅花) as it is the first sign that Spring has arrived. Although the Plum Blossom has just started to bloom around the city, I went to check out the first Plum Blossom Exhibition at Century Park (世纪花园梅花展) in Pudong (浦东). The entrance fee is RMB10 which is very reasonable. For a first timer like me, I was very excited to see Plum Blossom for the first time in my life. The flowers were absolutely breathtaking, especially along the path which was filled with lots of white Plum Blossom. Century Park claimed to have over 3,000 Plum Blossom trees. Although some of the trees were not fully bloomed when I was there, I still had a great time taking pictures & walking around the park with my sister & friend. Most importantly, that was the first time ever in my life I saw Plum Blossom for real.
