Love is in the Air! Where to Celebrate 520 in Guangzhou

By That's Guangzhou, May 17, 2024

0 0

May 20 is one of China's romantic days, celebrated alongside traditional Chinese lovers' day, Qixi (七夕) on lunar July 7, and Western Valentine's Day on February 14. 

'5.20' originated from the internet, as many trends do today. This term, like many others, is based on pronunciation—the Chinese pronunciation of 'five two zero' (wǔ èr líng) sounds like 'I love you' (wǒ ài nǐ). You can read all about this fascinating connection and more by clicking this amorous link:
