About the Railway Track Market in BangkokIn Thailand's Maeklong Market, Samut Songkhram takes place eight times a day in a strange ceremony. Once every few hours, the vendors sell all the stalls from the train tracks that pass through the center, before the train arrives.
After passing through the center of the market, next to the fruit and vegetable stands that are placed parallel to the tracks, the train goes and disappears. Then the tall stalls are rolled back onto their wheels, straight to their place on the rails.
How it started? - The market was there a long time ago. When the authorities decided that the railroad tracks would pass, the vendors refused to move, and they simply got used to folding before the train arrived and returned to work, minutes after it passed. For business, by the way, this did not hurt at all. The market, which is about an hour's drive from Bangkok, has become a fascinating tourist attraction and sales, thank God, excellence!
