Bangkok Train Market


Getting to the Mae Klong Railway Market:

From Central Bangkok

  • Make your way to the Victory Monument.
  • From the monument, walk towards the Suzuki garage.
  • Signs for each location will be noted on large boards at the entrance to each “bus depot”.
  • Keep an eye out for Mae Klong or Railway Market Signs.

If you struggle, there are plenty of staff members for each bus company that will be able to point you in the right direction.

Do bear in mind, that regardless of time, the buses will only leave when full, this took just under an hour for us (it was 11am).
