Flea Market
Absorb the sights and smells of Maeklong Railway Market (Talad Rom Hub), one of the largest fresh seafood markets in Thailand. The railway runs right through the center of the market, and vendors must pull back their awnings and wares every time a train goes past--six times a day--at surprisingly high speeds. Experience some delicious street food or enjoy a Thai iced coffee. Maeklong Railway Market (Talad Rom Hub) is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Samut Songkhram Edition.

  • A definite must see when you visit Thailand. The stall holders have moving their awnings down to a fine art , and its not something you'll see anywhere in any western place. Definitely worth seeing on...  more »
  • 我是從曼谷搭mini van過去,到達後經過當地人在逛的市場就會看到了,要注意火車時刻表,但不確定會準時,火車來時看著攤販收東西的場景會非常有趣。  more »
  • Our guide left us at Lat Yai station and from there we made the journey to the terminal. 4 baths per person, a few euro cents. If you're lucky and t can place in the machine, you see how removed the awnings and part of the posts so that it passes the train. Then we took a ride entering the market and saw the train back. It is the best time to record a video and some photos. Highly recommended.

  • Just mad. There is no other place like it. The market itself is second to none and all that topped by the iconic train arrival/ departure couple of times a day. Must not to be missed when in Bangkok and worth the 1.5h drive from Bangkok. Visit the local floating market to make it a day trip.
  • Must go, you can feel the Train pass through the market next to you. You will amazed by the quickest action of hawkers there, just few seconds they can restore there place and start selling good.
  • A crazy market ON the railway tracks. Be careful, many tourists are standing very close to the train.
  • Rent a car and drive from Bangkok to this place. Visit afterwards the near by floating market.
  • When all the three (market,train n the crowd) meet at the same place!!!
