Best Time to Visit Luoyang

Best Time to Visit Luoyang?

Spring and autumn are the best seasons to travel to Luoyang. Summer can be very hot and winter bitingly cold. Meanwhile, The Annual Luoyang Peony Festival from 10th to 25th April are the best time to see the blooming peonies. In April, Luoyang has already fully embraced spring as the peonies are blooming. Peony blossom appreciation is an ancient tradition for the Chinese since the Tang Dynasty (618-907) when Luoyang was China's capital.

Peonies are a symbol for the history and cultural heritage of Luoyang. Luopu Park, Peony Park, Shenzhou Peony Garden, National Peony Garden, and International Peony Garden are all excellent places for flower appreciation. The varieties of the Luoyang peony are as numerous as the stars, among which "Yao Huang" and "Wei Zi" are the most famous since they are known as the "king and queen of flowers." Visitors can also enjoy related activities in Luoyang such as lantern exhibitions, temple fairs, live music shows, peony poetry competitions and peony bonsai exhibitions during the blooming window. 

For a great kung fu fighting extravaganza check out the International Shaolin Martial Arts Festival that's held in Zhengzhou every two years from September 1 to 5.
