'Virtual' cherry blossoms bloom amid coronavirus fears

Feb 27, 2020 10:34 IST

With the coronavirus outbreak posing major travel restrictions around the globe, tourism during the cherry blossom season has also taken a massive hit. Botanical gardens in China are offering 'virtual tours' of the cherry blossoms for tourists. Officials have set up online tours so people can get a glimpse of the stunning flowers in their homes. Live streaming sessions involve botanists leading tourists around the gardens and sharing information about the flowers. Usually, about 1 lakh tourists visit China during the cherry blossom season every year.
