The world's most amazing market?

Welcome to the Maeklong Market in Samut Songkhram, Thailand. This market has a railway track running through it and, about four times most days, a train passes through. Stallholders are given about a minute’s notice before the train arrives and continue about their day once it’s passed as if nothing has happened.

Here’s another video showing just how close the train goes to their wares!

    Produce is right next to the tracks!!! That looks very, very dangerous but i suppose they are used to it.

    Fascinating how they pull the awnings back and go about business like nothing happened! Great videos. How did you find out about this place? Thanks for sharing!
