In recent years, Shaanxi province has pulled out all stops to improve its ecological development and protection. Through the Shaanxi Day, the province plans to demonstrate a green and prosperous Shaanxi, said Wei Zengjun, vice-governor of Shaanxi during his opening speech of the event. 

The demonstration area consists of a park and an exhibition hall. The park features a Silk Road landscape belt, as well as three scenic areas of ancient Chang’an, green Silk Road and mountain and water attractions. 

Comprised of four exhibition pavilions, the hall is mainly displaying bonsais, potted flowers, ornamental stones and wood carving. It’s worth noting that visitors can learn the Qinling panda culture during the event, along with panda-related dancing and dramas.

“Because I had my higher education in Xi’an, capital of Shaanxi, I have a deep feeling toward the province. The beautiful scenery, exquisite paper-cuts and traditional activities here are really attractive,” said a visitor from Beijing.

The Beijing International Horticultural Exhibition opened on April 29 and will last to Oct 7, with four indoor pavilions of China pavilion, international pavilion, plant pavilion and experience pavilion, as well as 100-plus exhibition gardens.
