BANGKOK FLOWER MARKET
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).
