The Maeklong Railway Market has a train running through the middle of it several times a day. Right down the middle and close enough to touch.
This market has everything that we’ve come to know and love in Thai markets. Its stalls have displays of fruits, veggies, meats, seafood, as well as sweet snacks, clothing, and flowers.The major difference being that there are train tracks running straight down its middle!
A charming little warning bell goes off over the speaker system just a few minutes before the train comes. Within a few minutes of receiving the warning, vendors pull back their specially designed awnings before the train comes, sometimes only moments before. That’s why the market is locally known as the Talat Rom Hoop (ตลาดร่มหุบ) which translates into “Market Umbrella Close.” #maeklong#thailand#bangkok#railway#farmersmarket#localfood#market#travel#traveling#explore#exploring
