Wael abualteen alias My Diaries In Dubai tested for The famous Maeklong Railway Market & Damnoen Saduak Floating Market while traveling in Bangkok, Thailand.
About the Maeklong Railway Market
Mae Klong Railway Market (also called Hoop Rom Market) is a local market in Samut Songkhram Province. This is definitely one of the curious places you must visit in your lifetime. What makes this market unique is that a train line runs directly THROUGH it a couple of times a day. Sellers move some of their products further off the train paths and lower their umbrellas when the train arrives. The baskets of vegetables and fruits are laying on the ground and shifted just enough for the train to go right over them without squashing them. Amazingly, nothing gets broken nor damaged, and as soon as the train passes, vendors proceed as usual.
About Damnoen Saduak Floating Market
Damnoen Saduak is a popular floating market which is located in Ratchaburi, about 100 km from Bangkok. This picturesque market features small boats paddled by Thai women wearing bamboo hats and selling local vegetables and fruits.
Ideal for Bangkok first timers who want to have a local feel of Bangkok. The private guided tour through the famous floating market & the railway market can be booked here.
