Pak Klong Talat, Bangkok Flower Markets

I had a night bicycle tour through here and it was absolutely jumping. It’s such a hub of beautiful flowers and colors and it never sleeps. There are showers of flowers.  It’s so easy to get lost in the labyrinthine suburb that is this flower market.  Go at night because although the markets never sleep, there are less tourists and the humidity isn’t as stifling. You’re likely to find some stunning fresh produce so don’t worry about packing your lunch. You’ll also find sweet Portuguese desserts and treats and plenty of exotic fresh fruit. It’s also interesting to see the spiritual elements,  as this is a central depot for sourcing flowers for all the Buddhist shrines in the area. Throughout the night, the flowers just keep coming, in endless supply. Bouquets and decorations, each no different to the stall next door, each uniquely different to the one across the way.
