Depart from hotel for Folding Umbrella Market or Mae Klong Railway Market (Rom Hub Market) at Mae Klong Railway Station, in Samut Songkhram province. Folding Umbrella Market or Rom Hub Market is truly a unique market, as it is located right on the railway track.
Here the locals sell fresh food, fruits, vegetables, and other farm products on the active train track, with trains passing through it 8 times a day. All stalls are lining along a 100-metre portion of track. This is one of the most amazing markets in the world.
Whenever the train is approaching, all the vendors will quickly fold away their umbrellas or awnings and remove their stalls to let the train pass.

After that, visit Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, one of the most popular, most photographe
