Cherry Blossom Tour in Dongjialou Village of Rizhao
Dongjialou Village at Wulian county in Rizhao may not be well-known but its cherry blossoms are extraordinarily overwhelming.
Miles of cherry blossoms will melt our hearts as we enter.
Upon entering the village, we can see a large reservoir. In it, ducks are pedaling hard forward leaving ripples in the water that tear apart shadows of the blue sky, white clouds and romantic flowers.
The village is surrounded by green mountains on three sides. A mix of farmers’ houses, the reservoir and cherry blossoms create a beautiful and relaxing country-side scenery.
Compared to the cherry tree farms that we are used to see, cherry blossoms at Dongjialou Village are everywhere, even in the outskirts of the village. Dongjialou is blessed to have such an abundance of these beautiful species, whether it be by nature or man-made.
Blue skies, clear water, green forestry, pink flowers, fresh air all luxuries that will relieve you from the city fatigue.
Nestled against Mount Dabei to the south, the Dongjialou Village has been on the roster of China’s National Forest Village. The village is buried deep within the mountains. Limestones, narrow streets, old houses, stone mills, and old lifestyles are vivid everywhere.
Buried deep in the mountains, it is worth to check it out even for its food.
Country food is always appealing. Even more when one is tired. Check out the Tofu House. Host, Ms. Wang has been making hand-made tofu for over 10 years. Her tofu has attracted a lot of fans, and they come back wanting more because they are so fresh and comforting.
Not only does she serve fresh tofu, she has other dishes available such as a crispy pancake and stir-fry chicken. The stir fry chicken is a foodie’s favorite. Reservation is required the night before to secure your spot.
“Fulan, Chenxin, Qingwu, Lairan” – the homestays here have all adopted different poetic names.
Best time to visit is during spring. Time to be an eco-tourist to greet the flower awakening.
