Welcome to The Market Experience
Firstly a big welcome to our new website www.marketexperiences.com and our first project is "The Market Experience @ The Flower Market".
Our mission is to help you "Discover the local culture through markets".
Through "The Market Experience @ The Flower Market" we hope to show you that there is much more to markets that you see at surface level. By digging deep into market life you can learn a lot about the local culture and nowhere is this more true than in Bangkok's Flower Market. We can learn a lot about the local society and culture by exploring the items for sale and what they are used for; who buys and who sell; how the market works.
The Flower Market does not only sell flowers but it is also one of the biggest fruit and vegetable markets in central Bangkok. Therefore it is a vital part of supplying fresh produce such as flowers for buddhist offerings, weddings and funerals; as well as produce for local restaurants. Therefore there is a lot to talk about with regards to Thai culture and rituals.
Not only will we show you about market life through our tours but we will run a range of workshops to discover what the items for sale in the market can be used for.
Through our blog here we also hope to share with your stories about market life and the people who work in the markets.
Enjoy and please let us have your comments. Hopefully we will also get to host you on a market experiences.
