The Market - video by Terje Sorgjerd with music Katie Noonan - Crazy

Bangkok’s Maeklong Market has been in existence for decades. It remained relatively undisturbed until the later creation of the Maeklong Railway and, contrary to what you might see in the United States and in other parts of the world, there was no eminent domain law forcing market vendors to move.

The result? Every single day the Maeklong Railway line passes through Maeklong – 8 times a day, 7 days per week. The train literally runs directly through the middle of the market, forcing vendors to pull back their awnings and wares while shoppers find a place to step off of the track that serves as their only walkway.

The second part of the video show the Damnoen Saduak floating market, very lively and somewhat chaotic, small "khlongs" or canals are filled with flat boats piled high with fresh produce, each jockying for position and paddled by ladies ready to stop and bargain at a moment´s notice.
