When it comes to buying Valentine's Day gifts, it's far too easy to pop to the supermarket or local convenience store and pick something up without much thought, so the team at Centre Point decided to let our valued guests and members in on a secret, the Pak Khlong flower market in Bangkok. This famous flower market is a tourist attraction in its own right and features the largest, and most diverse range of blooms in all of Thailand and is a great place to buy a very special Valentine's gift. Although primarily a wholesale market, they also sell retail flowers to walk-in customers. Located in Wang Phirom Subdistrict, Phra Nakhon District, near the banks of the Chao Phraya River, the market is very accessible from most areas of Bangkok by taxi or MRT. For those travelling by public transport, the nearest station to the flower market is Sanam Chai MRT station, which is minutes away by foot.
Valentine's Day is much, much more than a date on the calendar, it is a symbolic occasion that warrants thought, preparation and planning and buying a special floral gift at Pak Khlong flower market illustrates the love and respect you have for your significant other. As an alternative to spending Valentine's Day at a shopping mall, why not treat the love of your life to a trip to the flower market? They will surely appreciate the sights and smells of the market and will remember the day fondly.
We hope you have found this short guide to the Pak Khlong flower market useful, and it has given you food for thought as to where you buy your Valentine’s Day flowers this year.
