An online flower market has opened for residents of Guangzhou's Huangpu district to make Spring Festival purchases.
Visiting flower markets and buying flowers are a traditional Spring Festival celebration for people in Guangdong. This year, on-site flower markets in Huangpu have been cancelled due to the district's COVID-19 prevention and control measures.

Individual customers can place orders online and the flowers will be delivered to their homes directly. Those taking part in group purchases can choose from the designated sites to pick up their flowers on the next day.
Users can have a panoramic view of the offline flower market through virtual reality technology. They can also customize their own Spring Festival greeting cards at the platform. Their friends will be able to listen to their voice recordings by scanning a QR code.
In addition, red envelopes can be claimed by scanning the Chinese character "福" from 10 am to 10:15 am and 8 pm to 8:15 pm from Jan 22 to Jan 31. They will be given out on a first-come, first-serve basis.
