Travellers talk about
More of a wholesale market than a shopping experience, the fresh flower market has become a tourist attraction thanks to its sheer size, beauty and exoticism.

I didn't know that many flowers existed. There was a huge celebration going on and hundreds of people were decorating hundreds of things from small carts to giant platform stages with hundreds - no - thousands of flowers. I didn't need to buy any flowers...More

Interesting place for a little walk around. Open 24 hours a day. You can see the stall owners preparing flowers and making religious artifacts inside their stalls. Very colourful, bright and a great sensory experience. Interesting to see the workings of a traditional Thai market....More

While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok,

the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and
most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to
this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off
their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most
spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to
Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around
