With many typical Karst hills dotted on the flat farmland and the green land transforming into a golden sea of flowers, Luoping has become “the Largest Natural Garden in the World.”

"I think this is one of the most beautiful views in Yunnan Province. The yellow flower ocean goes with the blue sky," a Dutch tourist commented.

With this spectacle as its backdrop, Luoping County is organising a series of activities to boost tourism, including the International Canola Flower Cultural Tourism Festival.

The festival highlights principles of “tourism+culture”, “tourism+art” and “tourism+sports” including “beautiful Luoping, healthy Luoping, artistic Luoping, Luoping of ethnic minority customs, research in Luoping, cultural innovation in Luoping, and food in Luoping.”
