SH's got tulips!

Shanghai – Although they may look like pictures from Holland, these shots come straight from Shanghai. Located in Nanhui district, some 70 kilometers away from Pudong’s Longyang subway station, the Shanghai Flower Port (上海鲜花港) is a 100-hectare themed park that in April boasts China’s largest display of tulips imported from the NetherlandsThe Park was established in 2002 as a tourist attraction and also hosts an R&D centre of modern agriculture. 

As its flowers are in full bloom, it undoubtedly makes for a lovely get-away from Shanghai's hustle&bustle and a much needed respite into nature, under the blessings of "the Goddess of Tulips".

Besides "those flowers", as my taxi driver referred to the tulips while pointing out that "we [Chinese] don't like them as much as Chinese flowers", other flowers are also grown. Tulips are the park's highlight in the first half of April and were already withering as I visited it on April 28th.
