Maklong Railway Station is a tourist attraction in Samut Songkhram Province, Thailand. There is Rome Hoop Market at the station. So it is a simple market where you can find sea food, vegetables, fruits, meat and many other stuff but there is one thing attached to it which makes it very special.

This market is called the ‘deadly’ market because its stalls are very close to the My Klong-Ban Lam railway line. It is a short railway line between Mahachai and Mae Klong. According to the Thailand tourism website, the market spans 100 meters and is open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Shopkeepers are putting up umbrellas to protect themselves from the sun. There are shelters attached to railway tracks where customers shop but when the whistle of an oncoming train is heard, the market suddenly comes to life. The shopkeeper closes the umbrellas of the shop and starts taking out all the goods so that there is no problem in passing the train.
