Rot Fai Train Night Market ถนน ศรีนครินทร์ Bangkok Thailand

1. TRAIN MARKET - Topping my Bangkok must do list, is the train track market experience. Located on the railway tracks of Samut Songkram/Mae Klong province (70 kilometers away from Bangkok), this Thai Talat Sod or open air colourful fresh produce market, is very unique. Vendors line the tracks and you can walk along them too, only to move away at a distance and watch a spectacle unfold, when a train approaches. Locally known as "Talat Rom Hup" market, shop keepers scramble to retract their awnings whenever a train passes. This trip difficult to do on your own and is best organized with a small group tour agency. Located just behind Seacon Square, it is a huge open air market set beside an abandoned railway track and best accessible by MRT or taxis. Start at Kamphaeng Phet Station and walk for about 5 minutes, in the opposite direction of Chatuchak Market. Rod Fai market pulsates with a cool hippie vibe and is an excellent hunting ground for kitsch lovers. Antique furniture, cool vintage fashion, old (some original) cameras, bikes, electronic appliances, auto parts, Japanese anime toys and Mao collectibles are sold from sheets spread on the road and the market makes a great photo walk too.
