Maeklong railway market

A marketplace with a working railway track through it.



If you’re driving from Bangkok to Hua Hin (which takes about 2.5 hours), make sure you schedule a stop in Maeklong Railway Market in Samut Songkhram, some 60km away from the capital. Locals call it Talad Rom Hoop Market, which translates to “Market Umbrella Pulldown” but tourists call it Scary Market (read on to find out why). At first glance, it looks like any typical open-air market in Thailand. The market is filled with stalls displaying juicy fruits, fresh vegetables, a variety of spices, herbs, seafood and plenty more.
