The kapok flowers along Linchupi Kapok Road (林初埤木棉花道) have been particularly well-formed and exquisite during the 228 Peace Memorial Day holiday thanks to the warm weather, according to the district office. The flowers attracted a total of over 90,000 visitors during the three-day holiday.
Linchupi Kapok Road is nearly a kilometer long, with trees receding in parallel rows to form a blooming red canopy. Kapoks, also known as red silk-cottons, are deciduous trees with buds that blossom into five-petal arrangements of bright red. [FULL STORY]
