Depart at 0730 from our hotel to Maeklong railway market was greeted by surprise road closure when our van was approaching the town and we were wondering whether a protest was taking place here and our driver make a detour .We ended parking our van 500 metre away from the market and were lucky to witness a mass dieties celebration procession by the local Thai people of the town.As we were walking along the road,some shops were offering prayer table with foods and fruits to the various dieties as they pass along the road and we were even lucky to see firecrackers being fired in such a big bang which had been banned many years ago in Singapore.
Our driver direct us to an ideal spot for the train sighting and the train finally arrived around 1010 for tourist witnessing the magic moment of disappearing stalls and restoration of the stalls after the train had passed.
We even took photo with theThai people who are dress in various traditional Chinese costume from the procession and the beating of the drum and gong as they move along.
What a lucky occasion to witness to 2 sighting at Maeklong Railway market for 8 of us.
