Cherry blossoms are synonymous with Japan; and the country takes advantage of this, doing a brisk, booming tourist business, with hotels and flight prices skyrocketing during the sakura season. For those of us that can’t really afford a trip to Japan, fret not, Shanghai’s Gucun Park, the largest cherry blossoms park in the city, is a great local option. There are thousands of trees, spread out across 28 different species, covering everything from the early to the late bloomers. They also play host to the annual Shanghai Cherry Blossoms Festival, this year’s starts on March 15 and will run till mid April.
