Walking distance between Grand Palace and flower market in Bangkok?

Jump to last reply

With just 3 weeks before departure, I'm in FULL planning mode to finalize the details...

Two EARLY morning adventures I've read about are:
#1 ~ Getting up at 6:00 a.m. and heading for the Grand Palace area to be there when the monks come by with their alms bowls. We place food, etc. in their bowls as they walk past. I've been told that this is merit making at its basic best and an experience we won't forget.

#2 ~ An early morning visit to the Flower Market (5:00 a.m. and onwards) is suppose to be one of the best times. (So is midnight to 2:00 a.m....but not for us.)

Does anyone know how long it would take to walk from one to the other? Or go by boat...if any boats are running at that time?
