Even though this flower market is located dated close to major Bangkok attractions such as the Emerald Buddha and Wat Pho, it remains refreshingly local. The odd tourist wanders by but, overall, this is a place catering to locals rather than travellers. Most of the...More

This is worth visiting if you have an interest in flowers. The stall holders are very talented and you can watch them creating the most amazing displays. For those that are not interested there is a Starbucks nearby!

It's like its own city that doesn't sleep. They're constantly moving shipments of flowers in and out. They make the flower blessings here as well which you can watch them make as you walk through. We did this on a tuk tuk by night tour...More
