Maeklong Railway Market is a unique local fresh market.Just before the train arrives in the town, the market stallholders have to pull back their awnings and remove their produce from the tracks. They then have to repeat all of this when the train returns. Fortunately it is not a busy track. The train leaves four times and it arrives four times.
On the way, experience countryside and look for the windmills, this has long been a salt- producing area, and wind sails still revolve quietly above the flats. Traditionally, ocean water was drawn into the drying pans with wind power, using windmills made with bamboo frame and canvas vanes.
Amphawa Evening Floating Market, this one doesn’t start to get going until the late afternoon. Very good news for late risers and It is also more authentic as you won’t find the rows and rows of stalls selling the same tacky souvenirs. This is where the Thai tourists come to experience a floating market. Enjoy a private long-tail boat ride to see the fireflies flash over the trees on the bank of the peaceful river.
