“Most people associate the coming of spring in Shanghai with the beautiful cherry blossoms that can be seen in areas like Gucun Park. For a more unique experience, I recommend taking a one-hour drive southwest of the city to visit the Jinshan Peasant Painting Village. Here, you can see the intricate art of local farmers with unique styles that have evolved since the 1950s, as well as enjoy the blossoming of over 20 varieties of trees such as pear, peach and cherry blossoms.
