運河口花卉市場是曼谷的花卉批發及零售市場, 鄰近碼頭, 所以曼谷附近各地容易將花卉運入, 供應市場。市埸24小時開放, 但清晨時間最繁忙。走過花卉部份另有蔬菜農產部份。這景點没有太大的驚喜。
Wikipedia – Pak Khlong Talat (Thai: ปากคลองตลาด, “market at the mouth of the canal”) is a market in Bangkok, Thailand that sells flowers, fruits, and vegetables. It is the primary flower market in Bangkok and has been cited as a “place of symbolic values” to Bangkok residents. It is on Chak Phet Road and adjacent side-streets, close to Memorial Bridge. Though the market is open 24 hours, it is busiest before dawn, when boats and trucks arrive with flowers from nearby provinces.
