Maeklong Railway Market Tours

Situated to the west of Bangkok in Samut Songkhram, the Maeklong Railway Market is one of the most unusual markets in Thailand. At first glance it almost seems like any other local market, with vendors selling fresh vegetables, colorful fruit, and other foodstuff from tiny shops lining a narrow lane.

However, all is not quite as it seems at the Maeklong Railway Market. At regular intervals throughout the day, a loud train siren will sound and in a matter of moments, the shop owners will scoop up any stray produce, use long poles to hold up their awnings, and casually make way for the huge passenger train that chugs directly through the market!

Once the train has disappeared, the vendors will place their awnings back into position and the market will continue as usual. This occurs at the Maeklong Railway Market up to eight times a day, each and every day.

Practical Info

To reach the Maeklong Railway Market from Bangkok, take the Skytrain to Victory Monument Station and catch the mini-van service from there. For those who just want to see the train pass through the market, bear in mind that the train times are subject to change so check the updated timetable on display at the Maeklong Railway station located nearby.
