Web Editor:International daily
The International Horticultural Exposition featuring more than 60 exhibition gardens kicked off on Thursday in Yangzhou City of east China's Jiangsu Province. The 64 outdoor exhibition gardens displayed at the pavilions include gardens from cities in Jiangsu and cities in other parts of China, along with 25 exhibition gardens from foreign countries and international organizations. Covering an area of around 230 hectares, the expo includes five core pavilions: the Chinese Garden Culture Pavilion, the Courtyard Garden Pavilion, the Chinese Flower Art Pavilion, the International Horticultural Pavilion and the Opening and Closing Ceremony Pavilion. At the entrance of the exhibition is a waterfall modeled after the Huangguoshu Waterfall, one of the most well-known waterfalls in China located in east China's Guizhou Province. Another example would be the International Hall, which is shaped after Yangtze finless porpoises, one of the top class nationally protected animals in China, representing the love between the river and the ocean. The expo will also hold six contests for flower arranging and potted and miniature landscapes, while cultural performances will be organized on a daily basis. Sustainable use of the pavilions and supporting facilities will also be highlighted during this year's expo. Tourists could enjoy the exhibition by buying tickets online or on arrival at the site starting on Thursday afternoon. Volunteers will be handing out maps to the visitors and a cheap sightseeing bus service is also provided to help guests travel across the wide spread of exhibition land. The expo is the second of its kind held in China following the Beijing International Horticultural Expo in 2019 and will be open to the public from April 8 to Oct 8.
