Head deep into Bangkok’s lively markets for an authentic taste of local culture. At the heart of day-to-day life, the city’s markets are a treat for the senses, with vibrant colours, aromatic scents and the buzzing chatter between buyers and stallholders.
Meet with your guide and wander around a traditional morning market, where you’ll see locals tucking into breakfast before they start work. There will be the chance for you to sample tasty street-food favourites before heading to the next stop: a hectic wholesale market in the backstreets of the Yaowarat district, packed to the brim with everything from stationery to Thai fabrics. Cross the road into Little India, where the scent of perfumed spices fills the air, and admire the skill behind the hand-crafted goods.
Stop at a quaint little café for refreshments before visiting the city’s largest flower market. Here, you will find all kinds of bright and beautiful flowers, from sweet-smelling jasmine and delicate rare orchids to the sunny yellow marigolds used to make offerings at Buddhist temples.
