Getting there
Please note that the Thai Garland Making Workshop is located in a busy market; therefore, it is advised that guests arrive at the location well in advance, leaving enough time to locate the workshop. The Thai Garland Making Workshop is located on the 2nd floor (mezzanine floor) of the main Yodpiman Flower Market building. This is the building between the main road and Yodpiman River Walk (the newer restaurant/shopping area by the river). The easiest way to get to the workshop is to take the river ferry and get off at Pak Klong Talad pier (pier N6/1). You can get the blue flag tourist ferry (40THB – first boat is at 9:00) or the local orange flag ferry (15THB). If you are staying near a BTS station, you can take the sky train to Saphan Taksin station and then take the ferry. When you get off the ferry at Yodpiman River Walk, you will need to walk into the main flower market. Keep an eye out for signs for The Market Experience, where the Thai Garland Making Workshop takes place. The location is easily accessible by public transportation, such as taxis.
