Thailand is blessed with inexpensive, yet gorgeous flowers that would cost a pretty penny anywhere else in the world. In Bangkok, the best place for flowers is Pak Klong Talat flower market, a riot of colours and aromas, with not only multi-hued fresh-cut flowers available, but also fresh vegetables, fruits, and spices.
Stay up late or get up early, because the best time to visit is between 2:00 AM and 4:00 AM, when new deliveries arrive and buyers from restaurants, hotels, and market vendors all over Bangkok come to refresh their floral wares. Peruse jasmine, water lilies, orchids, and roses, along with handcrafted garlands, and then snack on a traditional breakfast of fried dough and hot soy milk.
Pak Klong Talat Flower Market Along Maharat Road, near Memorial Bridge Open every day from around 02:00 AM to 10:00 AM
