China’s Kunming Remains One of World’s Top Flower Markets

Thousands of vendors come to the Dounan International Flower Center in Kunming, the capital city of Southwest China’s Yunnan Province, on a daily basis. And the market is divided into a retail session and a wholesale session. 

On a good day, retail sales for each shop can amount to some 2,000 flowers. When the night falls, the wholesale starts. Some 20,000 buyers will rush into the market by then, and millions of flowers can be sold within the first hour. 

As China’s largest flower trading center — sometimes regarded as Asia’s largest — 70 percent of flowers sold in China come from Kunming’s Dounan. And, the center sold almost seven billion flowers last year.
