“Cut off from the rest of Nonthaburi province by the Chao Phraya river some 20 kilometres north of central Bangkok, the island of Ko Kret is home to centuries-old temples, a great weekend market and a Mon community known for its handmade earthen clay wares. This may not be your typical Thai island getaway, but Ko Kret’s countryside setting makes it a great urban escape. It is very convenient to go there and transportation cost by taxi/cab is only 80 Thai Baht.”

“Koh Kret (เกาะเกร็ด) is not a natural island, it was formed in 1722, during the construction of a canal, now known as the Om Ket river. As the canal was widened a number of times, it eventually cup off a chunk of land, and formed what is today known as Koh Kret (เกาะเกร็ด). If you’re a good swimmer, you might be able to swim to the other side of the river, but it’s still pretty wide. The island was settled by Mon people from central Thailand, and many people living on the island now are still Mon.”

Place of Worship
“The WatPoramaiyikawatMuseum displays a multitude of interesting items such as votive tablets, crystal ware and porcelains, including unique Mon artwork. One coffin, a “Hem”, was inspired possibly by the coffin of the Lord Buddha. The Hem coffin is used for monks and contains remains like a regular coffin, but has a window for viewing and paying respect to the remains. It is very convenient to go there and transportation cost by taxi/cab is only 100 Thai Baht.”

Beer Bar
$
“Take a boat trip to Koh Kret and drop by this place. As a locally produced beer in Thailand is currently illegal (Small batch outside the proper factory is not allowed), Chitbeer is where local beer producers come to hang out. Sometimes they hold a course to teach the beer making process for free. You can find rare, local beers in a friendly atmosphere here. 乘船游览Koh Kret,然后前往这个地方。 由于泰国当地生产的啤酒目前是非法的(不允许在正确的工厂外面进行小批量生产),Chitbeer是当地啤酒生产商来这里闲逛的地方。他们有时会举办免费教授啤酒制作过程的课程。您可以在友好的氛围中找到稀有的当地啤酒。”
