Koh Kret

1 Days Easy

Travel 20 kilometres north of Bangkok along the Chao Phraya River and you soon reach the island of Koh Kret.

In 1722, during the reign of King Thaisa of Ayutthaya, the island was cut from an ox bow in the river and was previously known as "Khlong Lat Kret Noi" which means a shortcut to Kret canal. The island has always been populated by the Mon, a people that dominated the area that is now Thailand from the 6th to 10th centuries. The Mon of Koh Kret are famous for their craftsmanship and skill at the potters wheel and still make all kinds of terracotta and earthenware products. The main village is a thriving market place where you can see the pottery making process and shop for pots, mortars, and flowerpots...
