  • I had an enjoyable stop at this market as part of a group tour. It was interesting to walk through and awesome to watch the train go through at 11.10am! One of my highlights in Thailand so far...

  • Maeklong Market or Talad Rom Hup is a market that has a lot of goods for sale, both fresh and dry goods. I like it very much. When the train comes, the vendors pack things. What is exciting enough...

  • Interesting tourist destination. Fresh food market for the locals. Everything seems pretty fresh. The sellers sell their products on the pavement and the buyers walk on the tracks to buy things. When the train arrives, the sellers pull back their shades and displayed food to safety for the train to pass. The passes very close to standing customers and lots of tourists. So close, you can touch the train.
  • Mae Klong Fresh market is only 1 hour drive from Bangkok. Here is fresh market in railway people are bring vegetables and fruits cloths etc. to selling when train come are move out from railway. Better come at morning around 7am. To looking around fresh market for waiting train come in 8.30am in this time weather not to hot.
