2020 Tangxi Loquat Festival Arrives
Again, the season of loquats arrives. Tangxi Loquat Festival is perhaps the most anticipated event in May in Hangzhou. Loquats at this time of year are the freshest and most succulent. People can taste them while picking, which is unable to resist. It’s even better that people can take a few baskets of loquats home.
2020 Tangxi Loquat Festival Kicked off on May 11
Tangxi loquats have a cultivation history of over 1400 years. Every year in May, Tangxi holds the loquat festival where tourists can come and fully experience the water town charm and food culture of Tangxi. This year’s Loquat Festival was held on May 11.
The first batch of loquats has already been on the market. It is estimated that most of them will ripen in mid-to-late May. Loquats will ripen in a sequential order with loquats in the south area and the west area ripening first.
This year, the sunshine is ample, providing a good growing environment for loquats. The loquats grow well and their quality is even better than in previous years. So, here comes the newest loquat purchasing, loquat picking and loquat tasting guide …
Loquat Sales Area
From May 10 to June 5, a loquat sales area with over 170 booths is set up at the transportation area south of Yunxi Road (运溪路), Tangxi Town. Inside the sales area, there are loquat concentrated exhibition and sales area, self-produced and self-sold area, mailing area, convenient service station, medical observation area, etc. Please wear a mask and show your health code before entering the concentrated sales area.
After picking and tasting loquat, why not stroll around Tangxi Ancient Town to experience its water town charm and its food culture.
The Qianlong Imperial Stele (乾隆御碑) stands at the west of Jesus Church of Shuibei Street (水北桥). It is the largest imperial stele in Jiangnan Region, recording the historical event of Zhejiang people not owing a penny in the years of the disaster, and signifying the highest praise that Emperor Qianlong of the Qing Dynasty gave to Zhejiang people for their hard work.
Guopu Well (郭璞井), at the south of Guangji Bridge (广济桥), is an ancient well paved with boulder strips. It’s said that the litterateur of the Eastern Ji, Guopu, who had a good knowledge of the principles of Fengshui, and Yin and Yang, passed by Tangxi Town during the drought. He used what he had learned to explore orientation and dredge wells to connect underground water. The well water was sweet and local people were grateful to him for his deeds.
Tangchao Path (塘超小径) is a waterside tourist path connecting the misty Tangxi and the Chaoshan Hill’s endless stretches of plum blossoms. The winding waterways and dotted lakes and pools have become the “blood” of the land. The Tangchao Path connects waterways and lakes and ponds, forming a green corridor.
Route: The tourist path is 20 kilometers in length, starting from Bazi Bridge (八字桥) of the Tangxi Ancient Town, passing Tangxi Village (塘栖村), Chaoding Village (超丁村), Dinghe Village (丁河村), Dingshan Lake (丁山湖漾) and then stretching southwards along Shenjie River (深结港), crossing Yanshan River (沿山港) to Chaoshan Hill before reaching Haiyun Cave (海云洞).
Dingshan Lake Wetland, though not famous as Xixi Wetland, has its unique charm with primitive water landscape and history and culture intertwined. Strolling around Dingshan Lake, your mood will be enlightened as the golden morning light and dazzling morning cloud dancing on the sprinkling water surface.
The Chaoshan Scenic Area has been a must-see for men of letters since ancient times. In addition to some ancient architecture, there hide a large number of stone cliff carvings in Haiyun Cave in the southwest of Chaoshan Scenic Area. There are professional tea art performances inside the scenic area, which is a great leisure activity to cool the heat in a hot afternoon when accompanied by high-quality chrysanthemum tea.
