Fragrant Hills Red Leaves Festival to Open
CRI, October 12, 2012
The 2012 Fragrant Hills Red Leaves Festival is scheduled to open this coming Friday, in accordance with the Beijing Evening Post.
The annual event has previously been a tourist magnet for Fragrant Hills in western Beijing. To ease traffic congestion, a number of bus lines have been designated to transport citizens and tourists from downtown Beijing to Fragrant Hills this year.
Because of the warm weather, the festival is expected to last for 31 days, the longest in its 24-year history. An estimated 1.5 million visitors will come for this year's festival, peaking on weekends.
