We were told that u can get your souvenirs here but unfortunately, we didn’t...just a simple market sold flowers, plants and animals..even though it was cute but still, it is sad to see the animals in the cage waiting for people to buy them

It's nice to walk through, but you'll quickly have enough. Nice for some spare time. We also saw little dog puppies in a very small cage which was pretty sad.

Really sad to see the awful conditions that rabbits, kittens, puppies, tortoises, birds etc were kept in - tiny cages, often filthy with stall holders showing little concern for their welfare - lots of markets stalls but the experience destroyed by the poor animal welfare.

We lived in Kunming for two years in the early 1990s and in those days the Bird and Flower Market was a true street market, not organized, a mismatch of people selling an amazing array of critters, flowers, tea, and sometimes other things that didn't...More
