You have to watch this unbelievable video. The Maeklong Train Market in Samut Songhram Thailand is an out this world market that functions on either side of a train track. The train passes through the tracks in the market, 4 times a day. The market sells fresh vegetables, fruits, meat, fish, cooked food items. The market is flooded with customers who are all across the train tracks buying what they need. When the sound alert comes on, vendors adjust their sun shades, people move away from the track and the train slowly and smoothly passes by. As soon as the train goes by, the market becomes alive again. A way of life....
