The collection of expressions of the local people on the street flower market “Pak Khlong Talad” before it is relocated.

Situated in down-town Bangkok, this market holding significant of national level, therefore it is important to realize the complexity and diversity of the way of life in, which has several facets, not only trades, but also culture, and tourism. We therefore conduct a survey and observation to study the social ecology around the “Pak Khlong Talad” market.
As an observer, we believe that trying to understand the context of the neighborhood is so important, before any concrete development plan could take place.
