An evening adventure that can be described as an Iconic frenzy that's immensely fascinating.

It looks like a 1km stretch of main road COMPLETELY packed with flowers fruit and Veg, but that's just the start, down each side Soi is more and more traders pampering their beauties. 

The Pak Khlong Talat  ( "Talat" means "market" ) is mainly, a wholesale market for fruit and vegetables, but also a consumers market. 

The wholesale area is concentrated near the river.                

Аs Phahurat (Indian markets) becomes deserted аt night, the flower markets come to life. 
An excellent stroll through an endless maze of flower stalls of colours, shapes and sizes, orchids, roses, аnd оther flowers аre аn aromatic sight ranging in price expensive bouquets fоr thousands оf baht to the most beautifully created roses fоr јust 50 baht. 

Best tіme tо visit іs around 03:00 when boats аnd trucks arrive wіth flowers frоm surrounding provinces. Іf thаt іs too late (or too early), visit frоm 20:00 onwards when the market іs beautifully illuminated аnd very lively

TOURISM times
From 8pm onwards the area is alive.  Many stalls are preparing and everywhere around there are food stalls and activity. Fanatics go at 2am

Best time to go: Fanatics: early morning, 2am to 3am when boats on the Chao Phraya River and trucks from nearby provinces arrive with immense quantities of fresh cut flowers, vegetables, spices, and fruits, all piled high inside the market and along nearby streets. 

Things start to get frenetic around 2:00 A.M. to 3:00 A.M. There are great photo opportunities as all the flowers, particularly the orchids, are sold under fluorescent lighting.


During the evening it is not unusual to see larger Tour buses wadding their way through the busy street, stopping to aloft passengers for a walking tour (omg what chaos)

The market is on Chak Phet Street and in side-streets on both sides of it, very close to the Memorial Bridge. If there is one market worth seeing, this is it. Pak Khlong is a wholesale clearinghouse for Bangkok flower vendors, it is considered Bangkok's main wholesale market. You can enjoy the best-smelling market in Bangkok.

The vegetable market too has a good smell. You can regard Pak Khlong Talat as the "Covent Garden" of Bangkok. This is indeed the main trading place for vegetables. Do not forget to visit the riverside (to see the wholesale area) and the building with a market inside.
