The poetry of spring is also growing quietly in faraway places. Spain, a vibrant and refined country, where ancient tradition and modernity stand hand in hand, all witnessed in the stirring bullfight, passionate flamenco and guitar ballads. While in Chile, a South American attraction, a country which is itself a history, a legend, a legacy, you will be amazed by the colours of spring colliding here.

If you are not a travel enthusiast, don't worry because spring is right here in Shanghai, an artsy city full of art galleries and exhibitions. Welcome to the "surrealistic society" described by Zang Kunkun, or to see how PSA Super Studio explores the essence of architecture, from industrial design to urban planning, showing its marvelous mysteries. Even if you just stay at home, spring is still all around you, hidden in beautifully arranged flowers and leaves in delicate porcelain vases. Like Dr. Naoko, a Chinese Australian ceramist, you also can integrate the artistic idea and inspiration of nature into life.
