As the fresh and rejuvenating breeze of spring approaches most parts of the country, orchards of oranges in Zigui county, Yichang city in Central China's Hubei province witness peak harvesting season, as well as a growing number of tourists who seek to experience local rural farming life.

Spanning across the highlands that overlook the Three Gorges on the Yangtze River, the orchards in Zigui are one of the country's biggest production bases of citrus fruits, and one of the few areas that can harvest oranges throughout the year thanks to its mild climate, abundant rainfall and fertile soil.
