7) Canola Flower Fields, China
You’d be correct in assuming that Canola flowers are used to produce Canola Oil. But we doubt you’d know of the spectacle of yellow flowers which bloom prior to their manufacturing. This glorious display of yellow blossoms takes place in the southern tip of China, in Luoping County. There are many places to view these flower fields, but Golden Rooster Hill and Hundred Thousand Hills put on the best shows. Additionally, the landscape beneath the flower fields creates some fascinating shapes. The dark pathways on the ground and the cone-shaped mountains provide a dramatic contrast, completing the surreal feeling of literally being in a yellow sea of flowers. Tip: Visit in spring (February – April) and head to the top of Golden Rooster Hill for the best panoramas. After the bloom, the petals fall, and this county goes back to being another ordinary dot on the map.
