Dounan Flower Market

As the sun rises every morning, flowers wet with dewdrops are already on sale at this flower wholesale market. Various common and rare flowers can be found here, from tropical butterfly orchids to flaming gerberas. Flowers are normally sold in bulk, but the market is worth a brows if only for the sheer spectacle.


Yunnan's ethnic minority groups each have honed crafts of their own, and products such as the Dai brocade or bronze pieces make for excellent gifts to bring back home. Pu'er tea, which originates from the province, is another great buy.
