18 Nov 2019
Lotus Hill Park was packed this last weekend as flower enthusiasts visited Shenzhen's 20th Bougainvillea Flower Show.
An estimated 960,000 people have visited the show so far!
Don't worry if you missed it.
There's still time!
The flower show was launched at Lianhua Hill Park on November 8th and will go on until November 27th. It has been open for ten days, with massive crowds visiting on the weekends.
As of 6 p.m., Lotus Hill Park received a total of 180,000 visitors on Sunday. Since the opening of the Flower Show, the total number of people entering the park has exceeded 960,000.
Not only is the park packed, but the transportation lines leading to the park are congested as well.
Metro Passenger Flow
Around 4 pm Sunday, passenger flow control measures were implemented at the Children's Palace subway station due to the crowds visiting the Bougainvillea Flower Show. The 3 outbound gates of the A and B terminals were closed, and the C2 and A2 ports were closed.
The passenger flow soared over the weekend, with the number of people entering and exiting each day hitting 80,000, according to the staff of the Children's Palace Station of Line 3.
Additional personnel were deployed to deal with the crowds.
The staff said that the highest peak of subway traffic generally occured between 10 am and 12 noon on Saturday and Sunday.
From around noon yesterday, there was heavy traffic congestion around Caitian and Hung Hom in Lianhuashan Park.

The backup of cars on Hung Hom Road, Choi Tung Road, San Chau Road, Huanggang Road and Lian Lian Road at 4:06 p.m. was attributed to the park having run out of parking spaces.
The show is going on until November 28th so plan accordingly. If you'd like to visit the show, consider going during non-peak times.
Enjoy the flowers!
