Maeklong Market is a unique, 'must-see attraction' that should be on every visitor's itinerary. It is called 'Risky Market' because there is a train track that runs directly through the middle of the market. Literally within seconds of the train passing through the market vendors have to pull their goods, and themselves, out of the way. The precision timings and movements of everyone involved are fascinating to witness.
The second market on this itinerary is at the floating market at Damnoen Saduak. Whilst it is authentic and still used by locals, due to its popularity, it has become busy with tourists. You'll have plenty of time to wander along the side of the canal here, take a short paddle boat ride, and make a few purchases.

What To Expect

Maeklong Railway Market (Talad Rom Hub)
Maeklong Railway Market is a traditional Thai market selling fresh vegetables, food and fruit. What makes the market special is that it occupies part of a train line. A few times a day, there’s a train running directly through the market. A few minutes before the train comes, vendors lower their umbrellas and move some of their produce away from the train tracks. Some are left on the ground, with the train passing right over them. Amazingly, nothing gets damaged or broken, and as soon as the train passes, the vendors move their goods back onto the tracks and continue as normal (until the next train arrives).

1 hours • Admission Ticket Free

Damnoen Saduak Floating Market
Famous for its tourist-friendly floating markets, Damnoen Saduak is the one you’ll find in the tourist literature on Thailand. Bring your camera along to witness the river packed with wooden boats overflowing with fruit and vegetables, which they sell to people standing on land. The scene is colourful and loud; just as you’d expect from a Thai market. It is just 100km from Bangkok.

It was awesome! The tour itself, the tour guide and the day!

The overall tour was nice and interesting. We were able to buy plenty of things in the Maeklong Train Market and eat lots of seafood in the Amphwa Floating Market, but sadly we were not able to see much of the fireflies because it was not in season when we visited (October is the season for fireflies, we went during February)
