1. Maeklong’s food market on rail tracks
Maeklong’s food market in Thailand offers an amazing yet thrilling experience. Several times a day, shopkeepers here are required to pack their food stalls and pull the canopies back, in order to let the track pass. Once the train is away, the crates of vegetables/eggs and other eatables are being placed back into position and shoppers/customers return back on the tracks – as if nothing has happened!

2. Where rail-track meets airport runway
Napier to Gisborne railway line in New Zealand is unique in a way as it is the world’s only railway line where a 1939 steam train engine passes through an airport runway. Although trains are required to stop and seek clearance from the air traffic control tower to cross the runway and continue down the line.

3. Ukraine’s tunnel of love
Often known as one of the most beautiful train-tunnel in the world, this three kilometre railway section leads to a fibreboard factory. The train here runs three times a day delivery goods to the factory. However, the eye catching green-corridor-views attract several couples and photographers to visit the track.

4. Harry Porter style in Switzerland’s Landwasser Viaduct
Most of us might have seen something like this in the famous Harry Porter movies. Possibly one of the most famous railway viaduct, in the world – this can be seen in most of the Swiss travel holiday brochures. Just to amaze you a bit, Swiss engineers built it back in 1902.

5. The cherry blossom express
Gyeonghwa Station in South Korea is well known for its breathtaking surroundings. What makes this station stand out is the several hundred cherry trees that line the track Spring season. When they bloom, they create a dazzling display of falling blossoms, causing a flurry of beauty.
