One of the top Samut Songkhram’s tourist attractions. Because it is not far from Bangkok, every Friday – Sunday the market will be packed by the tourists who come to enjoy canalside views or having delicious food. All visitors can purchase seafood, local Thai dessert or souvenirs for friends and family. Moreover, the visitors can have a boat tour to see views and lifestyles along Amphawa Canal. At night, the visitors can arrange for a boat trip to watch fireflies in cork trees as a fascinating night scene of the day.
This market is not the same as other markets, there is the train run through the middle of the market. The vendors will know the time when the train run through the middle of the market. They would have to preserve the products or goods, folding the umbrellas and store awnings to avoid the train. After the train passed, it s like a magic because the vendors immediately, put the awnings back into their original places as if nothing extraordinary had ever happened. That is why the market is locally known as the Talad Rom Hub which translates into The Folding Umbrella Market.
