::Off the beaten path in Bangkok ::

Whenever I am travelling I always like to venture off and explore things that aren’t always featured in the glossy travel brochures or found right outside of your hotel doorstep. This fall when in Bankgok, I did just that.

As I was moving up and down the Chao Phraya river I decided to pay a visit to the Pak Klong Talat, aka Flower Market, located in the Chinatown district of BKK. The Thai people have a a great appreciation for fresh flowers, both for the beauty and the fragrance. This is where those who have the time and the florists come to buy their flowers at wholesale prices, e.g. armfuls of orchids for 20 baht = less then $1 USD.
