BANGKOK FLOWER MAR­KET

Business Traveller (Asia-Pacific) - - HIT LIST -

Colour­ful and fra­grant, this is Bangkok’s largest whole­sale/ re­tail flower mar­ket – though it also sells fruit and veg­eta­bles along the main road and the many sois or side streets, all the way down to the river’s edge. Lo­cally known as Pak Kh­long Talat, the mar­ket is open 24 hours a day, but the best time to experience it is at night, when the ar­ti­fi­cial lights make the hues shine with a heav­enly glow. Ev­ery imag­in­able type of flower is on sale, from rare or­chids to hy­brid roses and in­tri­cate flo­ral bou­quets. Ac­cess via Chao Phraya river­boat pier Me­mo­rial Bridge (N6).
