In June, the 2012 West Lake Lotus Expo officially launched in Hangzhou. Two scenic spots as Breeze-ruffled Lotus at Quyuan Garden and Guo Zhuang host the exhibition. With the theme of "red lotus flower with green lotus leaves", more than 400 new species of lotus are displayed, making the expo a feast for the eyes of the tourists.
Lotus has always been a favor of the Chinese people for its pleasant scent and delicate colors, as well as the deep meaning beneath the flower and the leaves. Summer is the best time for lotus, while Hangzhou is the paradise of natural landscapes in China, which makes it a perfect combination for visitors to enjoy the beauty of nature.
