If you want a bit of a getaway in the heart of Bangkok – Bang Luang is a perfect destination. It's best to reserve few hours while here, people watching, boat watching, chilling out, sipping coffee of shakes in a cafe, watch a puppet show or rehearsals. We were late for the show (or it was another day) but the... More

Visited 19-Mar The Artists house is a traditional wooden Thai house situated along one of the klongs (waterways) on the Thon Buri (western) side of the Chao Praya River. It is here, at 2 p.m. each day except Wednesday, that you can witness a traditional Thai puppet show. The show uses large ornate puppets, each controlled by three people dressed... More

We went for the traditional puppet show. They showed how the costumes are put together, then a puppet intro, followed by a traditional show. Of course, it was all in Thai, but the beauty of puppet shows is that it really didn't matter. It's on the East side of the river in the canal area, which is a treat by... More

We had an amazing time there. You can see the clay works, the masks for Thai Theater performance, the art of Puppeteer that Thailand is very famous about. It has a coffee shop and it is close to the local market where you can have lunch and refreshments.

This location is not easy to find. You better take a taxinfrommone of the nearby BTS stations. Once one reaches the place, it is very nice to watch the puppet show at 2pm. I recommend strollng around in the area, as there are numerous paths along the waterways (klongs).

Worth a trip by long boat through canals and the Lock to see only houses on canal on stilts and life of people in this area. Fascinating to feed the catfish in the canal. Actually saw outdoor gym.

This is a really neat place in the canal area in Thonburi; many houses on wood stilts near the canal. The house is at least one hundred years old and I have read it may be two hundred years old. The house is very folksy looking and you hope the rustic wood floor doesn’t give way beneath your feet at... More

The place is definitely a gem in Bangkok. I am not a coffee person but I can tell that they use good coffee bean. The cafe is peaceful. You can rent a boat to travel along the river, fish feeding, draw something, paint something in the cafe. Occasionally, you might see young artists or art students to chill out here... More
