As of 2016, Bangkok's famous and formerly streetside flower market has been moved indoors. In the markets and shophouses that line Th Chakkaraphet, you'll still find piles of delicate orchids, rows of roses and stacks of button carnations, but the vibe isn't as exciting as it used to be. The best time to come is late at night, when the goods arrive from upcountry.

During the daytime, Pak Khlong Talat is one of the city's largest wholesale vegetable markets.
