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... More

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... More

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

Beautiful and quiet place with a lot of flowers and big grass fields where you may sit or even camp with your family. Entrance is 10 yuan only. Best time to visit is spring but not winter^^ because all exhibition halls are closed and not many flowers to catch a good shot.

This 44 hectare garden is 12 km away from Kunming town center. Located next to the Black Dragon Pool Park, this is one of the key horticultural gardens in Kunming. The themed gardens here are the camellia garden, azalea garden, greenhouse area and arbor trees area. There is also a tea plantation in the garden. Flowers should be at their... More

Many families go here for picnic as there is lot of open grass between trees to play. The part reserved for Chinese medical herbs and trees might be nice to those who have interest for that. Within walking distance from this garden is Black Dragon Pool.

A well deserved garden with a great feature of Camellias and other Chinese exotics, the soon to be completed hot house will have several sections of differing climatic conditions.

Flowers were at their best show time in May when we went (May,2007). For colors so full of life , a must see for those natural nature lovers. Flowers from this area are air freighted to many parts of the world . The area is somewhat like Lisse , Holland and reminds me of such for the beauty.

I love botanical gardens and have seen beautiful gardens all over the world. I was a little disappointed in this one.... I hope you have a better experience.
