Khlong San is one of the oldest districts of Bangkok with a long history. Its name comes from the name of a khlong (คลอง; lit: canal) that runs through the area, "Khlong San" or "Khlong Prasan". Its starting from Chao Phraya River towards Khlong Somdet Chao Phraya Ong Noi at the front of Wat Phichai Yat connect with various canals such as Khlong Wat Thong Thammachat, Khlong Wat Thong Nopphakhun, Khlong Lat Ya, all of which are canals that flow through the various orchards of the locals, which is the most famous fruit of Khlong San is longkong (a type of langsat). But about 70–80 years ago, there were excavations in various canals to build a road such as Lat Ya, Prajadhipok, Khlong San Roads or now's Somdet Chao Phraya Road.
Khlong San was called, in chronological order, Amphoe Bang Lamphu Lang (บางลำภูล่าง), Amphoe Buppharam (บุปผาราม), and Amphoe Khlong San (since 1916) when it was part of Thonburi Province. Its status was changed to king amphoe in 1938 and back to amphoe again in 1957 due to population changes. It became part of Bangkok after the merging of Thonburi and Phra Nakhon Provinces in 1971.
Khlong San was originally the terminus of the Maeklong Railway, but the line was cut back to Wongwian Yai in 1961 to ease traffic congestion.
The district is divided into four sub-districts (khwaeng).
