Beijing is subject to a reign of golden colors during autumn. Besides the yellowing leaves which stain the city's suburban mountains, another messenger of this golden season presents itself within the botanical gardens, public parks and in flower markets - chrysanthemums.
Here are four selected venues for chrysanthemum viewing in Beijing.
The International Flower Port, Shunyi District
The chrysanthemum flower festival will be held at the International Flower Port from September 24 to October 31. Over 700 thousand chrysanthemum flowers of various species will be exhibited during the show.
