an afternoon with flowers
Oct 2018 • Friends
I visited this place in October 2018. I live in Chenggong. So I take subway line 1. got down at Dounan station. It is very near to subway station. the market is really a place worth to visit. Roses, Tulips and all kind of flowers are there. Also you can buy trees, plants, seeds etc. I bought 2 pot plants. very cheap in price. in the second floor there are small shops for pot flower plant. I enjoyed my trip to flower market very much. It was really amazing.

Fresh cut flowers and potted plants

First of all, Cheng Gong is quite far away from Kunming City Centre. Take the subway to Dou Nan 斗南 Station. We hopped into a cab since we don't know the way. Though it's a short distance away, we were charged ¥15 (tourist price I suppose).
Secondly, the prices I paid at Dou Nan Flower Market and what I paid in the city Centre is the same but the flowers here are a lot fresher. Maybe I paid the tourist price too?
We arrived at 10am, and only went to one building with fresh cut flowers and potted plants. Most of the shops were open. We didn't explore the area, so I'll leave these comments to those who did.
If you've bought a lot of flowers and don't want to lug it back, delivery service both within Kunming and nation-wide is available within the Centre.
The market is a little disappointing for the distance travelled. But if you love to browse and buy fresh cut flowers, potted plants, gardening things, ceramic pots etc, then this place is worth a visit.

If you have a keen interest in flowers and plants...

This is a huge wholesale flower and plant market to the south of Kunming in Chenggong 呈贡. This part of Yunnan has lead China in flower production for 17 consecutive years, and some accounts say this is the largest wholesale flower market in Asia.

I went with a local friend this morning, arriving a little after 8, and it was almost over. We asked an elderly lady vendor what time we should have come, and she said 2:30 or 3:00 a.m. would have been best.

Acres and acres of cut flowers, grown nearby, go on sale here every morning, as well as many exotic flowering plants. We still were able to see some unusual varieties of blooms and buy some left-overs at a small fraction of their retail price. For example, a dozen lilies cost us a little over a dollar (USDollar) and thirty red roses about the same.

This market, the Dounan Flower Market 斗南花卉市场 is not to be confused with the more touristy Bird and Flower Market in central Kunming. This place is about an hour south of the city by bus (#12 from Dongzhan 东站。)Need to take a taxi for 8 RMB or walk two kilometers from the end of the bus line.

I'd recommend it as a tourist stop only if you have a keen interest in flowers and plants and don't mind some inconvenience. If I were to go again, I would start much earlier and arrive while the trading was still in full swing.
