The world’s most dangerous marketplace

Published on August 17th, 2012 | by FunnyDoom Stuff




Maeklong Market is in Samut Songkhram, Thailand, around 37 miles west of Bangkok. The Thai fruit and veg stalls where shoppers have to dodge bustling commuter train eight times a day

Every day people sell locally grown fruits such as lychee, durian, and mango, freshly caught seafood, dried spices and peppers, and other local foods. But then, eight times a day, a piercing siren sounds and in a flash the market transforms - the shoppers disappear and the stallholders whip away their produce. It is such a tight squeeze that the train - appearing to travel at about 15mph - touches the fruits, vegetables and everything else at the marketplace as it passes through.
