Bangkok’s backstreets and ragged fringes are packed with markets of all shapes and sizes, and these are among the most fascinating corners of the city to explore. One that’s particularly popular with TransIndus clients is the Maeklong Railway Market, which takes place on the suburban rail tracks themselves. A siren sounds ahead of the arriving trains and all the stallholders hurriedly pack away their goods, replacing them after the locomotive has trundled through.
Trips to Maeklong are often combined with a visit to the Amphawa floating market, where shoppers and vendors paddle around a grid of narrow, covered waterways. After dark, night markets spring up at various locations in the city – our favourite is the Talad Rot Fai, which specializes in retro and antique items, and features funky food stalls based in vintage VW camper vans.
