If you have a spare day in Bangkok and want to experience something different take a trip to the Maeklong Railway Market. Take the BTS Skytrain to Wongwian Yai Station and then find the exit that directs you to Wongwian Yai Railway Station, they are...More

This market is infested with Chinese tourists, all day tripping from Bangkok. Pushing you to side to make a picture when you have been properly waiting for over half an hour. No, there’s another way to enjoy this market: take the train from Wongwian Yai...More

Located at the terminus of Mahachai-Mae Klong Railway, trains pass through the middle of the market at 0830, 1110, 1430, 1740 (westbound) and 0620, 0900, 1130, 1530 (eastbound). Sellers keep their things and their stalls away from the railway at those times to allow trains...More

Unique market with a variety of produce. Can be difficult to negotiate the path as it’s narrow and a train track, with often hordes of tourists. Unfortunately we didn’t get to see a train

Arrived to see the famous folding umbrella action when a train passes through the market. All we saw was the tops of tourists heads.

The market area is quite large and occupies also on both sides of the railway tracks. It sells everything that a market is supposed, except the train which is not on sale. This is a public area, hence no entrance charges. Many local foods can...More

Very authentic market place with lots of locals buying produce. Then the train comes through! It’s amazing experience. Loved it. Would recommend a trip but skip the floating market nearby way too touristy.

This was a really cool part of our sightseeing day in Bangkok. We went early to avoid the traffic and it is also worth checking the train times so you can definitely ensure a train will pass through the market while you are there. The...More

You can go both, but need to depart early from Bangkok. Check out the train time of arrival, you can go to floating market before the train arrive, or after. Depends on your timing. My previous trip was flexible, and I... More
