China Yunnan Qujing

Luoping County

A county in Qujing, Yunnan, celebrated for its vast, golden fields of blooming canola flowers that draw numerous tourists each spring.

Tips from the community

When spring rolls around in Luoping, an untouched destination in China’s eastern Yunnan province, onlookers are in for a serious treat. It turns out the golden seed of canola results in bright flowering blooms when winter ends, and that happens to be the plant that covers this landscape. The result is mind-boggling, bringing about a vibrant blanket of yellow that seems to go on endlessly. With darker colored mountains jutting out of that colorful blanket, it looks like a scene from a bizarre, hyperreal cartoon more than anything else. Folks, this is one of the very best things to do in China.
