Bangkok Flower Market

Taking advantage of the serious jet lag that was waking us up at 2 AM our first week back in Bangkok, I begged Kade to take me to the Pak Khlong Talat (Bangkok Flower Market).  The flower market is wholesale and gigantic, and very alive between 4-6 am.  Buyers representing city hotels and businesses swoop in every day to purchase an array of exotic flower varieties - jasmine, chrysanthemums, gerberas, orchids, lilies, roses, lotuses - brought in daily (usually by river transport) from various provinces.  A bit tough to get up, but worth it.  Like a lot of things in Bangkok, very stimulating - almost overwhelming in terms of volume of people working and moving about (human ant farm), and the big scale of things.
