Guiwei Litchi Cultural Festival in Dajing Town, Gaozhou
The second Guiwei Litchi Cultural Festival was held in Dajing Town, Gaozhou on June 15 themed on “Dajing Guiwei, the favourite among Litchis”. Based on litchi culture, the Festival provided a grand litchi banquet and also showed Dajing’s modern agriculture development.
Highlights of the Festival included painting donation by Maoming’s best litchi painter, Cantonese Opera “Ode to Litchi”, and Litchi Gourmet Competition.
Dajing Guiwei litchi was listed as one of the outstanding products by China International Agricultural Exhibition. It has a small kernel and relatively firm pulp which tastes sweet and juicy with odor of fragrans. Early in the Song Dynasty, Dajing’s people had already started to cultivate Guiwei litchis.
If you come to Dajing Town, what you can enjoy is more than Guiwei litchi. Dajing has long enjoyed a good reputation for its Guiwei litchi, high-quality longan, banana, laying hens, and wood processing. Located at the confluence of Jianjiang River and Dong’an River, Dajing possesses beautiful scenery and magnificent landforms.
