Exploring the Chinese Flower Markets
Before Chinese New Year is a great chance to explore the Cantonese Flower Markets!
They have a beautiful variety of flowers to choose from – the Cantonese Flower Market is simply a must see. Every Chinese New Year the Cantonese will put up a tangerine tree inside their house. They then decorate this tree with red paper envelopes which are containing money, after that they look quite like a Christmas tree. The Cantonese believe the Tangerine tree to be a symbol of good luck.
The Cantonese Flower Market is starting on a different date, since the traditional Chinese calendar changes every year, but it is always midnight around 12 a.m. So during those 3 days you can buy a lot of different flowers to have a nice Chinese new year.
