On my fourth visit to Bangkok, we visited this hidden gem just near the city. Pak Khlong Talat is most lively after midnight. If you want to see the market in full action, though, the best time to go is pre-dawn or at 3:00-4:00. This is when the roadside transforms into a kaleidoscope of bright, blooming colours, as vendors receive floral goods from each flower-growing area in the country. Wholesalers bring in truckloads of freshly cut flowers. Directions going to Pak Khlong Talat: Sky Train: get off at Saphan Taksin Station Transfer to: Taksin Pier Take: Chao Phraya Express boat Stop: #6 Enjoy!
