1. Maeklong Railway Market-An unique Shopping Scenes in Thailand:
At first, looking at the above phrase one might think, what can be more interesting in markets that are worthy of going online? There are going to be only fruits, vegetables and probably other goods right? Your thought is absolutely correct. However, Thailand being a touristy destination, it has extremely unique markets as well. The things you get in the markets are the same. Food produce, fashion accessories, flowers, artifacts, handicrafts, memorabilia, and other trinkets. Apart from this, the one thing which no tourist should miss is the street food stalls.
Another thing Thailand is famous for is its food. The aroma, the usage of spices, and the deliciousness can only be experienced in Thai food. And though you might want to go to proper hotels and restaurants and have Thai food, the fun, and experience you get while having street food is an experience of its own.
And one such Bangkok Instagram spot is the Maeklong Railway Market. The most unique market in the whole of Thailand is literally a market on tracks. It is a 1,000 mm railway that runs between Wongwian Yai in Bangkok, and Samut Songkhram in central Thailand. And the hustle and the bustle of this market is never to be missed; especially the sight when the train arrives and all the merchants just rush to safeguard their stalls.
