Train goes through a market - level 2, A12

22-08-2012 18:00

There is a special street market in Bangkok. It looks like any other fresh fruit market in the south-east Asian country. But every hour people can see something very unusual there.

All people have to move aside within 3 minutes because a train goes through the market.

For locals the bizarre bazaar has become part of their daily routine. But for 500 tourists that come every day, it has become a must-see attraction.

Interesting words: aside (to one side), within (during), bizarre (strange), must-see (necessary to see).
