Presentation

Despite its name, it is no longer a floating market because there are no salesmen on boats, whether they are sailing or their boats are moored. The Klong Bang Luang Market, however, remains a nice piece of canal to escape the hubbub of central Bangkok and eat a bite or drink a coffee or other soft drink in one of its restaurants and cafes. You will also find some stalls selling souvenirs and a painter but the inevitable place here is the Artist House (Baan Silapin in Thai) and its daily show at 2 pm. I advise you to come here for 1pm, eat and attend the show.

It is probably better to come here on weekends because on weekdays the place is a lot more quiet and everything is not open. The Khlong Bang Luang Floating Market, especially the Artist House, is on the program of a boat tour on the klongs which departs on Saturday and Sunday from floating market Taling Chan at 1 pm but be at least 1 hour before at the counter to be sure they are still tickets for you.

Practical information about Khlong Bang Luang Floating Market

The easiest way to get to the Khlong Bang Luang Floating Market by public transport is to take the MRT to Bang Phai Station. You have all information and maps on the transportation in Bangkok page. You will then have a good ten minutes walk or, if you find one, you can hire a motorcycle taxi to get there (10 THB).

I did not check but some sources indicate that it the place is closed on Wednesday but that there would be a nice local market instead.
