Discover the man-made island of Koh Kret, a fascinating spot located just 45 minutes north of Bangkok in the Chao Praya River.
You’ll journey here with your local Bangkok host by water taxi, then spend the day immersing yourself in its unique island life - but it’s not all palm trees and coconuts. Home to the Mon community, one of Thailand’s oldest tribes, Koh Kret is famed for the traditional pottery making skills of its people.
Explore the island’s culture, cuisine and history as you flit between historic temples like Wat Salakun and Wat Phat Lorn, feast on spicy fish cakes served in banana leaf bowls and shop the traditional markets for some pottery to take home.
8 hours would never be enough time to discover hundreds of years of history, but you’ll experience a taste of this unique way of life on your day trip upstream. Please note: The local market only takes place at the weekend, so to enjoy the full experience please request weekend dates.
