    Taohuayuan, located in the Taoyuan County of Hunan Province, derives an element of its beauty from a very famous essay “Records of Peach Blossom Source” written by Tao Yuanming, a great writer of the Eastern Jin Dynasty (317-420). Well-known for its beautiful peach flowers, Taohuanyuan holds the Peach Blossom Festival on the 28th of March each year for visitors to enjoy its cloudy sea of peach flowers. In 2011, Taohuayuan Resort will host the 20th annual Peach Blossom Festival. This festival will last for two months from the 8th of March, to the 8th of May. The theme of the 2010 Peach-Blossom Festival was “Welcome EXPO, Enter Taohuayuan”, which mainly exhibited culture and the historical heritage of civilisation, and further publicised two kinds of brand-tours— the “flower-viewing tour” and the “culture-understanding tour.”
