Gotta see for myself how these vendors manage to do business along an operational railroad track 😱🤔🚂

It’s a must visit market in Bangkok. The market has various selections from meat, fruits to noodles, ice cream, to souvenirs. My favorite is the coconut ice cream! Yummy!! 🤤

A very recommended experience, seeing the rail-side vendors fold and unfold their umbrellas every time the train passes is a sight to be seen, they’re like flowers. Maeklong Railway Market is the go-to place to shop for souvenirs and fruits. The most memorable part of my experience in Maeklong Railway Market is the Coconut Ice Cream. No words can explain how fresh and yummy it is. 🤪

Similar to Japan's Tsukiji Market. You can buy fresh seafood from the vendors downstairs, then take them to one of the restaurants on the second floor. They cook it the way you want (for a fee, of course). We tried sannakji, Korea's famous octopus sashimi. Not gonna lie, it tasted pretty good—once you get past all that squirming. Be ready to shell out some cash; getting enough for an entire meal here is gonna burn a hole in your pocket. There are also a bunch of shops where you can buy knives, dried seafood, Korean condiments, etc. Worth a trip.

Head to Sungai Ara Market to find kuih bakul (Malaysian term for nian gao) made the old-fashioned way! It’s a laborious method which involves soaking the rice overnight, mixing it with sugar, kneading it as a dough, pouring it into molds, then watching it closely as it steams until it turns brown. To preserve the traditional taste of kuih bakul, the makers use white sugar instead of caramelized or brown sugar for the dough and line the molds used for cooking with banana leaves. Only a few hundred cakes are made each time; and are only sold on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays at 6:00 AM to 10:00 AM.
