Hengqin Flower Corridor
Occupying 850,000 sq m (210 acres), the 14-km (8.7-mile) Hengqin Flower Corridor on North Qinhai Road stretches from the Hengqin Bridge to Mangzhou Wetland Park along the Modaomen Waterway. Floss silk (ceiba speciosa), kapok (delonix regia), and flame trees, which, taken together, bloom all year round, are planted on both sides of the road.
The corridor has four rest stations titled European, Ecological, Lingnan (Cantonese), and Coastal, which are equipped with toilets, lounges, and tourist service centers. Shared bikes and electric bicycles will later be added along the route.
During the florescence lasting from October to December, more than 7,500 floss silk trees attract sight-seers with perky pink blossoms along the 6.4-km (4-mile) greenway section between the Hengqin and Second Hengqin bridges.
