Flowers are especially popular on Women's Day. And a colorful display of flowers is on show in various flower markets of the country

People are also marking the day with short trips. Since "Women's Day" falls on Sunday this year... many women are choosing to travel with their families or friends.

A tourist from Qingdao said, "Cole flowers blossom in March. Some of my family members like taking pictures. And so I wanted to take my mom and other family members on a fun, short trip."

But for those that don't like to stray too far from the city, there's also entertainment closer to home. Women in Beijing attended a special "Cross Talk" performance for women.

The audience member said, "We booked tickets online. It's quite a different feeling than watching it on TV."

People in the quake-hit areas of Sichuan province celebrated the day with the theme of reconstruction. Residents of Deyang city hosted a yangge dance competition to express their hopes for a better tomorrow.

And in the city of Mianzhu, hundreds of photos showing women participating in reconstruction efforts also express the optimism of the local population.
