This is a market where you have to keep your wits about you – because eight times a day a train comes crashing through.
Maeklong Market is in Samut Songkhram, Thailand, about 37 miles west of Bangkok.
Every day people sell locally grown fruits such as lychee, durian, and mango, freshly caught seafood, dried spices and peppers, and other local foods.
Locals weave their way in between vendors, picking up whatever they need that day, while tourists curiously marvel at the more unique foods at the market such as fried frog on a stick.
But then, eight times a day, a piercing siren sounds and in a flash the market transforms –
the shoppers disappear and the stallholders whip away their produce.
It is such a tight squeeze that the train – appearing to travel at about 15mph – touches the fruits, vegetables and everything else at the marketplace as it passes through.
Once the No.4382 commuter train from Mae Klong to Ban Laem has gone, everything goes back to normal – as if nothing happened
