Railway Market in Bangkok, Thailand

You just GOTTA love Thailand. Check out this short video of what happens at this railway market in Bangkok. The market straddles the tracks of a rail line in Maeklong, a small town about 40 miles south of Bangkok where the train comes through eight times a day. The shop owners have the timing of the train down to a science. Moments before it arrives, they pull down awnings and move merchandise out of the way. The moment a train passes, awnings are pulled back up and goods are set back out on the ground next to the rails.
