{Wanderlust} Bangkok Flower Market


One of my favorite things in the world is fresh flowers. It's one of those utterly simple treats that is cheerful, colorful, and makes any space just a bit more homey and personal - even something as temporary and transient as a hotel room. I have the pleasure of being in Thailand for the second time in my life, this time visiting Bangkok again and Phuket for the first time. It's incredible how much the city of Bangkok has transformed in the ten years since I last visited! There's a sky train, a bevvy of new night markets and weekend markets, and a global sensibility that I don't remember feeling the last time I was here. Truthfully, Instagram's popular page may be the reason (I kid, I kid - but seriously, I'm pretty sure the entirety of the Instagram popular page consists of One Direction photos and Thai people).

One of my favorite destinations on this trip was the flower market in Bangkok.... The photos are pretty self explanatory, and stunning - at least in my humble opinion.

  6. I'm amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that's equally educаtіvе anԁ engaging, and lеt mе
    tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is somеthing not
    еnοugh men and ωomen агe speаκіng intelligеntly about.
    I'm very happy I stumbled across this during my search for something regarding this.

  7. Oh *beautiful*!! I love this tiny glimpse into Thailand (a country I'm yet to visit, but which is high on my wander list) and can't wait to see more from your trip!


    Hope you're having a wonderful time with your family darling!

  8. wow. these shots are gorgeous! the worst part about being at a flower market in a foreign country is that i although the flowers are sooo beautiful, i can't justify buying any because i can't bring them to my own home! such is life... i'll just continue admiring them from afar :)

  18. Nicolette, I was in Bangkok the same time you were! Too bad we didn't run into each other :) I have a question for you - in Thailand I was surprised how many people pointed out my size. Did you ever run into this?

  19. If you happen to be smart and go ahead and take time for you to prepare to
    obtain the best possible mortgage, regardless of what your
    existing situation is, you can achieve that pay day loans uk there are
    no lasting bad choices with most of these loans.

    Buying from street carts is also a unique experience provided
    you are smart enough for bargaining. For the bulk requirements, better to go to
    the central markets. In Bangkok, I prefer to buy my flowers gifts through online
    stores like the one Flower Delivery Bangkok.
