Thailand: Maeklong Railway Market
Now this was a true gem – it was just a random find and didn’t even come up in research. In a small town of Maeklong, a market forms along the train tracks. This is an active railroad and trains do come through 3 times a day when all the sellers and buyers have to scatter away and then reassemble. This was truly an awesome experience – almost 100% local Thai people shopping for fresh produce, fish of all shapes and sizes (mostly fresh water species), meats and various local delicacies – all this as you walk along the train tracks. One of the best markets I have ever seen!
