Suzhou Taihu Lake Plum Blossom Festival is the number one tourism festival in the early spring in Suzhou city. It is also the tourism festival with the most influence in Suzhou.

Since ancient times, Suzhou has been a well-known place for plum blossom and has developed a rich plum blossom culture.

The best place to be in February is the plum park, which is famous for its fabulous plum trees, bearing more than 30 types of plums. When these trees blossom, the park is akin to a sea of plum blossoms, making for a very pretty sight.

The festival has the plum as its theme and a variety of folk culture activities. Activities include singing and dancing from south of the Yangtze River, string and woodwind music performances, folk songs and dances, painting and photography shows, a bonsai exhibition, and other folk arts and crafts shows.
