Siam Orchid Center (ตลาดกล้วยไม้), a name that I wasn’t familiar with, despite having been there for so many times.
We usually refer to it as ‘the plant market at Or Tor Kor.’ For the sake of this blog post, I finally checked the official name of this green place.
This Orchid and Decorative Plant and Flower Market, is part of the Or Tor Kor market. It was created to act as a meeting place for buying and selling these items, and also as a central distribution point for both producers and consumers.
We have been coming here more often, ever since D started his ‘plant project‘ at our condo. It’s worth a visit, if you have a soft spot for plants.
Update July 2016: A seller told me that operating hours are from 9am-5pm, daily. But some of the shops open before 9am, from 7-8am onwards.
Update May 2017: Take the MRT to Kamphaeng Phet station, exit #3. You’ll reach Or Tor Kor Market – Siam Orchid Center is towards the right side of Or Tor Kor market, after open-air car park.
Address: Kamphaeng Phet Rd. (Near Or Tor Kor Market), Chatuchak, Bangkok 10900
