One of the places I loved the most in all of Thailand was the Bangkok Flower Market.
A tuk-tuk driver suggested it to me, and as I have always loved plants, I went to check it out.
Basically, it’s just a part of town next to the floating market where they have stalls selling fruits and flowers.
That might not sound exciting to you (and if so I do understand) but I love plants and flowers so much!
The flowers are grown all over the country, and they are sold here to become wreaths and bouquets.
Most of them will become offerings to Buddha in a temple somewhere, but some are also for gifts and occasions.
Giving flowers, offering flowers, and having flowers around is a big part of Thai culture because it is a tropical country with good soil.
Even just walking around the streets I came upon amazing flowers all the time that stopped me in my tracks and made me take a picture.
So, this is my gratuitous post in tribute of the amazing flowers of Thailand.
Please enjoy my bad cell phone pictures of some of the most beautiful flowers and fruit that I have ever seen.
I promise that if I ever go back, I will at least buy a mediocre camera first so I can take less blurry pictures.
Of course, if you did have a nice camera, would you want to take it on vacation?
So bad pictures it is!
