Pak Klong Market is a night market best visited between 02:00 and 04:00 when it has fresh deliveries of flowers, fruit, vegetables and spices. From 20:00 onwards the area emerges as a kaleidoscope of bright, blooming colour as vendors and consumers take to the floor to trade in Jasmine, lotus and roses – amongst other things.

It's situated where Klong Lord meets the Chao Phraya River near the Memorial Bridge and is the primary flower market in Bangkok. The trade that occurs around you will be supplying most business and hotels with their freshly scented petals. Expect to see few foreign tourists here, it’s mainly frequented by street vendors and wholesale buyers, but it’s nonetheless a vibrant and fragrant experience.   Read More...

  • Opening Hours: 20:00-06:00
  • Location: If you are at Wat Pho, follow Maharaj Road with the Chao Phraya River on your right hand side.
  • Address: Chak Phet Street and inside-streets on both sides of it

Snake Tonic

Its popularity as health food has been declining recently, as traditions fall by the wayside, but the Chinese snake tonic can still be found in the middle of Soi Phadung Dao. An old man who sets up shop about 300 meters from the eastern end of Yaowarat Rd, is reputed to be able to brew any concoction to cure what ails you from the blood and meat of snakes. If you don’t find him here, then Khlong Toey Market is your next bet. 

  • Location: Soi Phadung, same street as T&K Seafood.

Talat Kao

Talat Kao is one of the oldest markets in Bangkok and has acted as the central market and trading place in Chinatown for over a century. Famous for its Chinese delicacies including sharks fins, dried abalone, fried puffed up fish stomachs and steamed bird’s nests, this is not a place for the faint hearted. An insightful opportunity into the culinary culture of the Chinese, for those who prefer more simplicity to your meals dumplings, noodles and freshly squeezed orange juice are all readily available.  

  • Opening Hours: 20:00- late
  • Location: Middle of Yaowarat
  • Address: Soi Ta Lat Kao

  • Opening Hours: 12:00-Midnight
  • Address: DR Reflexology 51/1-2 Phadung Dao Rd. Samphantawong, Bangkok (Behind Zong Zeng Heng Gold Shop)
