Thewet Market in Bangkok
Fish, Flower, Vegetable and Garden Market
in the Heart of the City
Thewet Vegetable Market
Thewet Market is essentially one of the premier plant and garden markets
in Bangkok, however, there are other markets in the vicinity, including a
fish market, a vegetable market and a flower market. While the fish and
vegetable markets are situated just off the intersection of Samsen Road and Krung Kasem Road, the garden, plant and flower market flank both sides of Khlong Phadung Krung Kasem, which is west of Samsen Road, not far from the Tha Thewet River Pier, a little north of an area known as Banglamphu and part of the Dusit district of Bangkok.
Loads of Vegetables at the Market
Life around the Markets
is a rather sleepy sub-district of Bangkok, approximately 30 minutes upstream
by passenger ferry boat from the BTS Skytrain station at Sapan Thaksin.
Life around these markets takes on a much slower pace, but not only
that, it's also a wonderful place to free yourself for a couple of
hours while taking in many of the unique sights and sounds in a setting
unlike some of the other modern shopping areas
dotted around the inner city. In the area near the river and next to
the small wet market along the canal, there is a small ghetto catering
Thewet Fish Market
The Fish Market
Thewet market has its own unique charm as does its counterparts. Next
to the busy main road there is a lively fish market selling a wide
variety of fresh fish as well as some rather fat sardines deliciously prepared in small wicker baskets. The
Thai way of selling these fish is to place two steamed sardines facing
each other in a basket. They are an extremely popular snack among the
locals and sell for around twenty Baht, which is pretty cheap if you are
on a tight budget.

The Flower Market
Pak Khlong Flower Market
may be one of the nicest places to look for flowers in Bangkok, but this
particular flower market here is an excellent place to shop for
beautiful blooms in season simply because there is such a wide variety
to choose There is also a large selection of garden plants and
other related items too.

Getting to the Market
Getting to the wet market by road is relatively easy, though it does
depend a lot on the time of day and traffic conditions. However, a better alternative and a much more relaxing way would be to take the tourist river
boat. Or perhaps you might even like to take one of the smaller river taxis from anywhere along
Chao Phraya River. Ask to get off at the Tha Thewet Ferry Pier. Because from there, it's just a short walk to the market.
