Highlights
  • Visit an old market in Bangkok's Chinatown
  • Explore a flower market called "Pak Klong Talad"
  • Discover the Temple of the Golden Mount
Full description
Start by visiting Bangkok's old Chinatown, providing you with another perspective of Bangkok. This area is less well travelled and has a very rich history.

Next, head to the Pak Khlong Flower Market - the biggest fresh flower market in the city. This is where flower traders from all over the country convene in the wee hours of the morning to unload their freshly cut blossoms in bulk. The kaleidoscope of bright, blooming colors, coupled with a symphony of fragrant smells, from roses, daisies, chrysanthemums, indigenous orchids, and many more, is just amazing. The earlier you arrive, the better, as the market seems to wind down soon after the first few hours of the morning. Your guide will let you try some local street food.

After this, move on to Wat Saket or the Temple of the Golden Mount. This is an ancient temple dating back to the Ayutthaya Period. The Golden Mount, built under the rule of King Rama V, is 77 meters tall and at the top resides many Buddhist relics found in the ancient city of Kapilavastu.
