About
Following an 85 kilometre drive from Bangkok to Na Kwang Station, take the 8.30 train for the short journey to one of the most amazing attractions in Samut Songkram province, the Maeklong Railway Market (Hoop Rom Market). Commonly called Siang Tai, or Life-Risking, Market, it is situated beside, and on top of, the actual train tracks. Seconds before you cross the tracks about to pull into Maeklong Station, the vendors have rushed to pulled back their parasols and umbrellas and cleared their goods back to within inches of the passing train. Less than a minute after that they have hurried to put everything back in place so they can get back to the job at hand, selling their seafood, fruits, meat and vegetables to the local shoppers.

定番の観光地ですが一度は行ってみて。
Nov 2019
ギリギリを通過する列車はなかなか体験出来ませんね。
列車の乗客も観光客なのかな、乗ってみるのもいいかも。
列車の本数は多くないので時刻表を確認してから行った方がいいですね。
写真撮影の場所を提供してくれたお店には、軽食でも食べてお礼しましょう。

Decepcionante el mercado flotante
Nov 2019 • Couples
El mercado flotante no es un mercado en sí, únicamente son unos canales repletos de souvenirs pensados por y para el turista. Además se crean atascos de barcos a motor echando mucho humo encima de los turistas, muy desagradable. Si podéis evitad este mercado flotante.

En cambio el mercado ferroviario sí es un mercado local y es muy curioso observar el paso del tren. Esta parte de la excursión aunque breve sí la recomendamos.
