Easy Guide to Maeklong Railway Market (Bangkok)

Are you planning to visit Maeklong Railway market (Bangkok)?? It’s better to check the Maeklong railway timetable first. I recommend you to catch the first train, just in case if you miss the first one you still have the second or the last train.IMG_20150428_090837

The schedule of the train is can be delayed anytime. And the warning is just a few hours before. So, coming to the market in the morning is better.

Drive from Bangkok to this market is about two hours by minivan. And you can find the minivan terminal under the expressway at victory monument. The ticket window of the minivans going to Maeklong railway market is same with the ticket window of the minivans going to Damnoen Saduak floating Market.
