Wuxi city – located in East China's Jiangsu province – is stepping into the international spotlight as host of the annual cherry blossom festival from March to April, when thousands of wonderful cherry trees will be in full flower in the Yuantouzhu (Turtle Head Isle) scenic spot.

The festival held its opening ceremony on March 24 – both on-site and online in the wake of the recent COVID-19 outbreak.

Together with the festival, the 2022 Wuxi International Month also kicked off, providing an opportunity to both celebrate cherry blossoms and boost friendship and communications between Wuxi and other countries. A series of international exchanges and cooperation activities, exhibitions and interactive experiences will be held during the month-long event.
