Okay, just watch. Three, two, one. This is Thailand's Maeklong Market.
The Railway Market
About an hour south of Bangkok, every day, beginning at 6:20 in the morning, a train runs through Maeklong Railway Market, one of the largest produce and seafood markets in Thailand, through the stalls selling fruit, ice cream, fish—through everything. And if you're wondering which came first, the market or the train? The answer is the market.
鐵道市場位於曼谷南方車程約一小時的地方，每天從早上 6:20 開始，火車會開過美功鐵道市場（泰國最大的農產品與海鮮市場），穿過水果攤、冰淇淋攤、魚攤－－經過所有攤販。想知道到底是先有火車，還是先有市場嗎？答案是市場。
The Maeklong Railway built a commuter train to Bangkok back in 1905. The track they laid ran right through the middle of this market, which had been around for decades. Rather than moving, the vendors stay put, adjusting their business to the train times—eight times a day, seven days a week.
There's no time to speak; you just have to put things away as quickly as possible in three minutes.
All the sellers here know to move before three minutes.
Before the train comes, we'll hear the three-minute alarm.
I put away all my mackerel, and then pull my awning up.
I grab my ice cream bucket, get the umbrellas on both sides, and then make sure all my customers are standing behind the bright orange safety line.
This system has been perfected over the years. With produce just inches from the train's wheels, tourists and vendors wait as the train passes through. Then everything goes back to normal, or at least as normal as an active train line market can be.
