My campus locates in the north part of the Lovers' Road, Zhuhai, a city faces Hong Kong and Macao across the sea. I have been hiding most of my hopes and dreams away. However, I always consider it the silliest pity that I did not watch a sunrise at the sea for four years college life beside the sea. Lovers Road is one of the most famous landmarks of Zhuhai, and also a travel spot one can not miss when travel in Zhuhai.
May is the time when quite a few cities across China embrace early summer, and more important, May is the best time for visitors to travel around grasslands in Northwest China. On these vibrant grasslands, green grasses grow eagerly, and lovely flowers blossom magnificently. Apart from those grasslands that are very familiar to visitors, there are still many others worth a visit.

Yellow Mountain, or Huangshan Mountain, located in Huangshan city, Anhui province, is famed as the only scenic area that wins the title of World Cultural Heritage, Natural Heritage, and World Geological Park at the same time.

Shanxi, as one of the birthplaces of Chinese nation, always impresses visitors with its profound history and culture. Now that we are approaching May, Shanxi witnesses the best travelling season. During these days, the climate is warm and there is no better place than Shanxi to make your May Day holiday unforgettable and unique.
Watertown Suzhou, a delicate city from the traditional Chinese paintings in the southern regions of Yangtze River, is synonymous with small bridges, water alleys, classical gardens, deep humanities and literary quotations in almost every street. To taste its lingering charm, spring, especially the month of April should be the best period due to less visitors and travel cost. Just please well-prepared ahead of your exploration, as the delicate beauty and fine details of the city require a more tranquil, tender heart and more perceptive eyes.
Almost all visitors who have lived in Hutongs of Beijing will take a fancy to Chinese quadrangle courtyard and old Beijing culture. For them, to go deep into Hutongs, the past memories and traces of Old Beijing, is the only way to a real Beijing. Nanluoguxiang (南锣鼓巷), or South Luogu Lane, a hutong built 700 years ago in Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368), has become a popular haunt for both domestic and foreign travelers today with many distinctive bars, stores and galleries.
"Springtime is the land awakening. The March winds are the morning yawn.” When Zhangjiajie steps into spring, it is always full of vigour, birds singing, flowers smelling sweet. Scenic spots such as Ten-mile Gallery, Yellow Dragon Cavern, and Wulingyuan Scenic Area give you surprise from time to time. Plants there will catch your eyes, brilliant-coloured azaleas in particular. They are just stretching under your eyes, and sometimes you will feel as if you were in the flower kingdom!
