Friendly Tips:
The Fragrant Hills Red Leaves Festival is held each year from mid-October to mid-November, attracting tens of thousands of tourists and shutterbugs from China and overseas. It is the best time to attend this Fragrant Hills day tour, also the busiest time. In consideration of the crowds of tourists and frequent traffic jams, if you go to Fragrant Hills during the festival, we will skip the visit to Olympic Park.
