Nice relaxing park to wander
Nov 2019
Located in the far north of the city, thhe e Botanical Gardens are more of a place for local families to while away a sunny afternoon than a must-see for tourists to Kunming. Take a book and a hammock and set yourself in the less-frequented West Garden. It's a nice break from the hustle and busetle of the city.

The most beautiful red leaves view in sub-tropical area
Sep 2019
Late in November, it's the best time to enjoying the stunning view of the red maple tree avenue. It's not easy to see red maple trees cover almost half of the hill in Kunming such a sub-tropical area, comparing with northern part of China. There are also quite a porpular site to take wedding photoes for young guys. It's also a good place for family with kids to picnic during the weekends on its huge lawn.

Frustrating day out
Apr 2019 • Friends
Why build an enormous glass house, fill it with beautiful plants and then lock it so no one can enter?
The glass house should be the crowing glory of this nice botanical garden but it is frustratingly locked for most of the year.

I don’t get it. Disappointing day out.

New but Terribly Inaccesible
Jun 2018
The newly built botanical garden Fuli Palace in this park is the most inaccessible garden I have ever visited around the world. Apart from the required extra ticket( which is not mentioned at the entrance of the park), visitors are not allowed to visit the green houses themselves unless they pay for the tour guide. However, the tour guide service is only available once an hour( one and half an hour during noon time). If the visitor is late for even five minutes, he has to wait for fifty minutes for the next tour guide service. The tour guide service is so limited that most visitors have to wait outside the locked greenhouses. Really terrible experience.

Nice park to stroll
May 2016 • Business
After visiting Black Dragon Pool Park like a local Chinese, we ended up our morning in this botanical garden. It is rather big, exposing many types of flowers, grasses and diverse plants. There are also many medical plants written in Chinese for them own use.
Through we did not arrive at the best time to observe everything but it is worth strolling inside the garden.

Definitely worth a visit if you are in Kunming
Apr 2016 • Friends
The park is located in the far north of the city, a taxi is the best way to get to the main north entrance, Kunming taxis are fairly inexpensive. Entrance is just 10 RMB, any time after mid March it is a riot of colours and smells, beautifully laid out exhibits, a nice glasshouse, lovely areas of woodland. A very nice place to spend an afternoon. The only down sides are the lack of sears and the fact it closes at 5:00 p.m. Getting a taxi back at the gate is reasonably easy and a number of buses mack to the city centre stop there.

A little hard to get to but a lovely morning in the gardens
Feb 2016 • Solo
This is a little gem of a place in Kunming, somewhat peaceful and cheap to enter. I went during the spring festival and saw a lovely selection of flowers in bloom, one that they are most famous for, and a wide selection of other local and imported plants. The garden is not very big so you would probably not need more that an hour or so, unless you are planning on spending time painting or photographing.

To get here, ride the blue line to the second to last stop and take a taxi or walk up the 7204 highway.
