Market In Bangkok. I would never have imagined that anything like this was even possible

172

This Bangkok market is located on the railway, close to Maeklong Railway Station, on a line which is still in use. It is a huge draw for tourists who flock to the market to watch as the vendors rush to fold and remove their awnings and umbrellas, before the train arrives.

Apart from its semi-official local name Rom Hup Market, meaning roughly the umbrella market, it is also ironically called Nee Tai Market, as the merchants have to flee away to escape from the oncoming trains.
