Floating kitchen  flottante
Since the floods, there is a new floating market open from 9am to 18pm every day (contrary to what their signs and leaflets say they are closed before 20h on weekdays, later on weekends). Bua Klong Bua Floating Market Klong and its water theater are closed. Those who expect to find the image of a floating market with sellers on their boats offering their goods will be disappointed. As it is the case for all floating markets which have emerged in recent years; the purpose is more to create a space for shopping and restauration in a convivial setting of wooden houses with traditional forms than a traditionnal floating market. Of course some boats are used as kitchen to some food stalls but this is more a mall, a pleasant and warm one but more a mall than a market. There is a scene in the center which hosts occasional events and shows. Ayutthaya Floating Market is much busier on weekends than during the week. Therefore it is a much more pleasant place on Saturdays and Sundays. This is a good place to buy souvenirs and eat in a setting that changes than usual.
