Flower Market (Pak Klong Talad)

Floral splendour
For the best views, come by boat. The stop on Chao Phraya is called Memorial Bridge. After that, simply follow your nose toward the intensive scent of blossoms. Bangkok’s flower market is nearly impossible to beat for its diversity and colourful glory. It offers nearly everything, but the orchids, lotus blossoms and high, white tuberoses available for a few hundred baht are especially beautiful. The market is active around the clock but the atmosphere is especially good at night.
