Maeklong Railway Station and Market

The Maeklong Railway Market is one of Bangkok’s most unique attractions. It is truly a must-visit destination.

What makes the Maeklong Railway Market unique is that it’s located right on top of a railway line, and trains run right through the market a few times per day.

One minute, stalls are set up all over the railway line as hundreds of people go about their shopping. Suddenly a train approaches as the market literally folds away and lets the train pass through. Then, in a matter of seconds, it unfolds back into a busy market.
