The Old Bang Phli Market Festival takes place every year in the month leading up to the Rub Bua Festival. The 150 year old market on Samrong Canal is one of the oldest in the country that is still running. The Old Market is open every day but there are more activities at the weekend during the festival. This is a good opportunity to see the traditional way of life of the Bang Phli people living along the canal. Every weekend there will be special activities that include folk plays, sea boxing, boat tours, traditional sword fighting and local food.
