Flower Shop
“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 Logistics Best ages: suites all age groups Atmosphere: casual Spoken Language: Thai, nominal English Tourist attraction: Yes > Street food, grass roots tourism, close to Grand Palace Duration: minimum 4 hours ”

“Wat Paknam Bhasicharoen is a colorful, fascinating five hundred year old Buddhist temple located across the Chao Phraya River. You can attend a good mediation center at the temple at evening. Inside the main hall is a venerated statue of Luang Phor Sod which devotees have laminated with gold leaf. This temple is popular among foreign tourists who wish to learn more about the meditation methods by the late abbot.”

“The temple was built during the reign of King Rama III of the Thai Rattanakosin Kingdom. He was the king of Siam from 1824–1851. Rama III was the elder brother of Mongkut who succeeded him as King Rama IV in 1851. Rama IV became famous beyond Thailand, after being portrayed in The King and I film and stage productions. 'Wat Prayurawongsawat Worawihan is a "second class level" of royal temples. Visiting The temple complex is seldom visited by foreign tourists. It was restored in 2009. A museum at the temple displays relics found during restoration. Museum and site signage was in the Thai language as of 2012.”

“If You’re a Thai Seafood Lover – Heavenly Somsak Boo Op Street Stall. While oftentimes Thai street food comes at very affordable prices, other rare times it can be expensive (relatively). But let me tell you, if you’re paying top prices for Thai street food, your money isn’t going towards the nice ambiance or the perfect service, you’re paying for high quality ingredients. Located just a 5 minute walk, on Charoen Rat Soi 1, is a street stall that lives up to its reputation of having the BEST goong (shrimp) and pu (crab) ob woon sen (with vermicelle, baked in a small pan) in the city (at least by far the best I’ve ever had).”
