Bangkok is one of the most well known cities in the world. In general, that makes it the most well known city in Thailand and the one that is most frequently visited. There are so many things to see and do in Bangkok that it is difficult to fit everything into one trip. Everybody knows about the famous floating markets, but lesser known are the train markets. Some of these train markets are so called because they are set up on and around train tracks that are still in use! When a train approaches, the vendors all pull their wares and stall awnings back like clockwork and the second the train passes, they quickly put everything back down and carry on as if a huge train did not just roll by centimeters away.
“Fun, colourful, sometimes crazy, often crowded, and full to bursting with fantastic sights, smells and sounds, Thai street markets are famous all over the world — and they’re a great place to pick up a bargain.”
