Chinese New Year is coming soon! In Guangzhou, one of the most important traditions before the Spring Festival is to visit a flower street which is called “Hang Fa Gai” in Cantonese.
Flower is a long-standing symbol of romance in Guangzhou. For most of the Cantonese, buying flowers for the New Year is normally how they start the celebration of the Spring Festival. People hope the colorful flowers could bring "good luck" to them in the coming year.
In addition to flowers, a wide variety of Spring Festival decorations and snacks can also be found in Guangzhou's flower street. Strolling down the street, you can feel the vibrant, authentic flavor of Cantonese New Year. For the non-natives, this is the best way to blend in with the local life of Guangzhou.
This year Guangdong unveiled a special roadmap that incorporates more than 20 internet-famous tourist attractions across the region with vibrant Cantonese-styled festive vibe, centering around various themes like traditional Spring Festival practices, intangible cultural heritage folk customs and trendy recreations. In addition vouchers worth 300 million yuan were handed out across the 21 cities in the province. Welcome to experience a Cantonese New Year in Guangdong!
