Laitai Flower Market 莱太花卉商城  
  alt
China's biggest botanical warehouse is a delight to walk through and could be the most greenery you’ll see while you’re here. Row after row of colourful orchids, peonies, bonsai trees, cacti, Chinese roses, lotus flowers and burgeoning green plants are complemented by the tropical fish shops on the market’s periphery. It’s a good bet that most foreigners in Beijing are at least looking to improve the air quality in their own homes by purchasing a few fresh plants. Laitai flower market is your one-stop shop for all things green. There is a huge selection of plants, from small succulents and potted herbs to plants almost as big as a tree. Naturally all of the related botanical paraphernalia is available at the market, such as gardening tools, watering cans, insecticide and fertilizers.

altLaitai Flower Market is composed of the fake flower sale building and the fresh potted flower sale hall. The underground floor of the fake flower building has modern porcelain, lamps, carpets, straw and cane products, eating utensils, stone carvings and some small handicrafts.
Laitai Flower Market's first floor deals in various kinds of fake flowers in many shapes, colors and designs.
From here walk through to the fresh potted flower and plant hall where you will find a healthy array of flowers and plants of all varieties. Particularly striking are the many kinds of orchids found thriving in the warm greenhouse conditions of the market.
If you are a fish enthusiast, don't pass up the fish stalls along the side of the flower and plant hall. There are all types of fish foods and enough bits and pieces to decorate any aquarium to make it appear like the Great Barrier Reef.
