From downtown Kunming we took one or two city buses. The city buses are cheap and a little uncomfortable. But if you know how to use one, or have a guide, you don't need a taxi or tour bus. The park is huge! We arrived around lunch time and left near closing. There wasn't enough time to see everything. Each... More

We went here in April 2013. It was during dry season, and clearly it was out of season for the expo as well. There wasn't much to see considering the high admission fee.

Just after entry... a sound wow will come out from your mouth. Very big area. So i will suggest you to make whole day plan...otherwise you will be tired. But some portion of this botanical garden is not well maintained .... so i gave three star.

I really like the section here where they displayed gardens and famous sites from all the provinces in china. It was a great way to get a flavor of all the different provinces in china. They are currently trying to include some amusement park rides here. As for the foreign portions of the expo most of those are gone now... More

Wonderful travel site for family, couple, single. You can easily found all facility you need. This place become a fabulous area after 2009 Expo. You will need at least 4 hours in order to finished your trip. I would recommend this place as a weekend play site.

Great Gardens, it will take you many hours to see them all, so budget your time accordingly. Sadly, the focus now seems to be selling Jade in the "Jade Museum", and not on the Gardens themselves, many attractions/halls were closed and it was very apparent that selling Jade was now the #1 goal. Still, it is a very good and... More

World Expo was open in 1999, a long time ago. Now many parts of the park have been privatized or closed. If you simply want to enjoy the stroll and the sight of trees and plants, it's fine. But the ticket is terribly expensive. And it's hard to get a taxi back to the city (or hotel).
