Horticulture Expo Garden

The World Horticulture Expo Garden is 218 hectares in area, 2.5 km in length, and 1.1 km in width. In the garden you can find 5 big exhibition halls (China Hall, the Man and Nature Hall, the Green House, the Science and Technology Hall, and the International Hall), 6 theme gardens (the Tree Garden, the Tea Garden, the Bonsai Garden, the Medicinal Herb Garden, the Bamboo Garden, and the Vegetable and Fruit Garden), 3 outdoor showplaces (the International Outdoor Exhibition Area, the Domestic Outdoor Exhibition Area, and the Exhibition Area for Enterprises), and 2 big squares (Century Plaza, and the Performance Plaza).

The theme of this exposition garden is "Man and Nature, marching into the 21st century".  The 34 Domestic Outdoor Exhibition Area is spacious and magnificent.  It is home to many diverse gardens from the 31 provinces of China, autonomous regions, municipalities directly under the Central Government, Hong Kong and Macao Special

Administration Regions, and Taiwan. There are two green belts running from south to north symbolizing the Yangtze River and the Yellow River (Huang He). The gardens of the provinces not only display the natural beauty, but also the local culture, religion, and infrastructure of many places. Some typical gardens are the graceful Wanchun Garden (Beijing), the elegant Xiaoxiang Garden (Hunan Province), the modern Bio Garden (Fujian Province), the special Ningchun Garden (Ningxia) and the delicate Shanshui Garden (Guangxi, Shanshui means water and mountains).

The International Outdoor Exposition Garden is a great place for people to enjoy the traditional culture of ancient Asian gardens alongside the ocean culture of European gardens, the harmonious and straightforward immigrant and primitive culture in the American gardens, and the Australian-flavored Oceania Garden.TTT

Do you have transportation to tour the Gardens or is walking the only means of viewing the Gardens? How far from Kunming are you?

Hi Nancy, yes, we have the transportation. It is about 6km from our office in Kunming to the garden, which takes around 30mins by car. Walking is not suggested. Our  transportation from our office to the garden is CNY120/PP for one way. If you need the car for a whole day (8hrs), then the price is CNY960 for a group of 2 people. Any assistance you need from us, please feel free to let me know. Nice day, Whitney

It is good time to travel to Expo garden in early April. The weather in Kunming is warm all the year round. we don't have tourist to visit the garden now, many people go to Kunming just for Stone Forest or Golden Temple. guest replied on 2011-11-17

how far is Kunming world expo to train station - Kunming Lijiang? Is it easy to get a taxi from expo to train station? What are the programmes at nite at Kunming world horticulture expo?
It is easy to get a taxi from the Expo to train station. It will takes about 30 mins and cost RMB50 for cab fee. There is no any activities in the Expo Area. It is looks like an empty garden. Tourists are unable to enter into the area after 18:00 and the Expo area will be closed after 20:00. So I do not recommend it to you. You can go to Shanghai for the current World Expo.
