A Train Runs Through It (Bangkok Market)


The video below is taken at the famous Maeklong Market in Bangkok which is also known as the “Folding Umbrella Market”.  The nickname comes from the fact that when the train comes, they fold everything out of the way and when it’s gone, everything gets opened back up.

It is a pretty good concept, they save a lot of space without anyone getting hurt, except for a casualty or two once in a while; watch closely (middle left of the screen) starting at the 1:40 mark to see what I’m talking about. If this little diddy convinced you to visit Bangkok, do what I did and browse for flights to Thailand from JetAbroad.
