Introducing The City of Flower, The City of Flower Guide, The City of Flower Travel Guide
Article from Kunming Municipal Commission of Tourism
The promoters of the Howard Johnson Hotel with its distinctive twin semicircular towers have installed a unique garden in a purpose built climate controlled dome between the towers. The centre piece of the City of Flower is a peacock perched on top of a mound above a waterfall with a selection of flowers used to create its tail feathers. Entrance to the City of Flower is through a media centre rather like a planetarium with a colourful visual briefing projected on the roof.
Entrance tickets are 100 RMB which reflects the cost of installing and maintaining the floral exhibits in this enchanting and unique space. There is a wide selection of plants and flowers including many beautiful and rare orchid displays. The City of Flower has just been opened to the public but is beautifully presented and is a blaze of coordinated colour in an imaginative setting.
The City of Flower includes a museum with many realistic displays including a recreation of an old French shopping centre, a perfumery and an enchanting recreation of guests at a tea dance! Visitors also have access to a shopping centre on the two levels above the museum which includes shops selling silverware, flowers and unique small gifts plus a restaurant. This is a pleasant way to spend a morning or afternoon and visitors should take their cameras with them.
