With cherry blossom season right around the corner, the local government in Wuhan, Hubei Province, on Wednesday issued recommendations for the 10 best places to admire cherry blossoms in the city, including Wuhan University and Donghu Park.

Wuhan is home to more than half a million cherry trees, covering almost all the various species around the world, according to a report from the Paper.

The first recommended place is Donghu Park, one of the top three cherry blossom parks in the world alongside parks in Japan and the US.

Wuhan University, which was previously locked down due to COVID-19, is now open to the public; however, visitors will have to register online to enter the campus.

The university is famous for its more than 2,000 cherry trees, earning it the description "the most beautiful university campus in China."

The Cherry blossom is one of symbols of Wuhan and as the flower blossoms in spring, it is seen as a sign of vitality by local residents.

"When we see cherry blossoms fill our city, we know spring is coming and the shadow of coldness has gone away," an Wuhan resident surnamed Fang, 26, told the Global Times.
