Jingwen Flower Market
About this place
Jingwen Flower Market is such a peaceful pleasure, especially considering its somewhat ironic location by the wild and stressful XiangYang market. The market is two stories filled with stall after stall of lilies, orchids, roses, and every other plant imaginable (both real and silk). The combined aroma of all of the flowers is simply wonderful. Visitors will surely pick up the aroma as they near the vicinity of the market. As with just about everything in China, try to bargain on the prices. A full bouquet should cost about 50RMB.
Surrounding the large market are some other great shops worth checking out. Walk along Shanxi Road toward Yongjia Road, and explore the home stores and the florist shops that have sprouted in the recently renovated storefronts. The entire area is undergoing a facelift. Even the flower market itself looks like it might be expanding into a great corner storefront at the intersection of Shanxi and Fuxing Roads. This renovation will surely boost what was a commercially dead, yet bustling pedestrian corner. More shops and cafes are scheduled to open in the coming months.
Take Metro Line 1 to Shanxi Rd. Station. Exit onto Shanxi Rd and head south for about two blocks. The market is on the right side of the street after Fuxing Rd and before Yongjia Rd.
