The people of Chengdu, in southwest China's Sichuan province, can appreciate the exotic beauty of tulips, while further north, in Dalian, the new season is celebrated with a special calligraphy competition.
 
At Shixiang Lake in Chengdu, hundreds of tulip blossoms carpet the valley. The basin has more than 70 different kinds of tulips, some of which have been imported straight from their homeland in the Netherlands.

And as the various breeds of tulip stagger their seasonal arrival, visitors have until the end of April to witness the spectacle.
 
In Dalian, northeast China's Liaoning province, people are celebrating the emergence of spring with a special calligraphy competition.
 
Stroke by stroke, 60 young calligraphers write the Chinese character for “spring” or others related to the season.
 
The competition has also attracted nine foreign contestants, from countries such as Russia, Germany and the US.
