• Railway market
In the small settlement of Thai Samut Songkhram, near Bangkok, the railway market. No, this is not a market where you can buy spare parts, wagons or wagons themselves. This is a normal market, which sells tropical fruits and vegetables, are also full of dried spices, sauces and herbs, fresh seafood and other local delicacies. Around the tents, umbrellas, little space, all jostling.
And then you notice under the feet of the railroad tracks. And then there is a loud whistle, and the market immediately comes to life. Buyers are trying to get away from the path, and the sellers - to remove their goods, laid directly on the rails. It is a strange and unusual sight - a train, traveling at a speed of 24 km / h, almost touches the fruit and vegetables, and the sellers at this time keep backups of their trays.
As the train passes, traders again corrected trays and products, and life on the market continues as if nothing had happened. In the end, the market was here, long before the paved railroad through it in 1905.
The Thais call it Talad Rom Hoop, which literally translates as "market under the umbrella contractible."
