  • A very interesting place and to see how the local market is changing fast before the train comes and after the train left. Very friendly people.  more »
  • This Railway are similar to Taiwan one. But I think this is more attractive. They selling many local foods , fruit ,souvenir and spices on the floor or on the booth. But once the train come, all shops will hide their booth/ table inside the shops and make the train can be moving on the road. After train passed, all shop will show the goods on the railway again within a second. And the goods selling here is much cheaper than other night market. And I like the people in this area, they are very nice. I overpaid to them three time. They gave me back the money honestly. This is a very funny place to let us know more about Thailand local.
  • This is a very cool, one of it kind. You get to enjoy local fruits and foods beside souvenirs. Definitely worth all the trouble despite the hot weather. I would suggest to arrive early to avoid congestion (crowded) and you get to see more hawkers. Very good experience and will come again.
