The Dounan Flower Market in Kunming, capital of Yunnan Province, is the largest wholesale flower market in Asia.
A record-breaking flower market
Last year. 6.5 billion flowers were traded in the market, with tens of thousands of blooms sold at breakneck speeds in auctions every year.
China’s online flower market is set to hit $7.9 billion by 2021.
