Firefly-themed park opens in China

Observing fireflies at night can be engrossing. When I was a kid, my friends and I used to catch a few of these flickering lightning bugs and put them inside a glass jar. If you're a firefly enthusiast and you're thinking of planning a trip around Asia, you might want to consider China. 

   According to this blog, the world's first ever firefly-themed park just opened in Wuhan, the capital of Hubei Province. It is divided up into five separate areas including a zero-distance contact zone, observation zone, flying zone, breeding zone and science popularization area for visitors to interact with and observe the insects.

   The park has already attracted thousands of visitors, and will be opened annually from the end of May to early October.
