Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

Shanghai and eastern China’s subtropical climate brings with it four distinct seasons. The weather is generally mild and temperate, with a great deal of rainfall even in the drier months of the year. The frequent monsoon showers and scorching temperatures of June, July and August can make it uncomfortably humid, with the mercury regularly rising over 35°C. Winter is overcast and chilly, although snow seldom falls in this eastern region of China. Spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) are the best times to visit Shanghai and eastern China, with pleasant temperatures and fewer tourists.

Description

Nanxun Blossom Hill is a boutique retreat situated in the tranquil water town of Nanxun Scenic Area.

Restored from a former ancient villa built in 1930 by Liu Geng Gan, whom was the richest person in Nanxun, the property had been overhauled by French designer Thomas Dariel. Nanxun Blossom Hill is dotted with South Chinese gardens in the Hidden Book Town of Nanxun.

Each of the 26 rooms are stylishly decorated with hints of ocean blue hues, latticework, bamboo weaving, Lazy Susan coffee tables and paintings illustrating the pastoral lifestyle of Nanxun.

The gorgeous restaurant incorporates geometrical elements of blue and red silk strips, serving both Western and Chinese food.
