Small island in the Chaopraya River in north of BKK. Lots of potteries. Great to bike around (bike rental is less than 100 Baht a day). Enough cafes and restaurants. Best to go in the week-end as during the week days many things may be closed. No cars on the island.

There were many food stalls selling the typical thai food but also, some stalls selling snacks which are rare to find in Bangkok. ( I have attached some photos for reference). Only available during weekends.

You can rent a bicycle or walk to go around this small island. In my opinion, it is better to walk than cycle, because the pathways are actually quite narrow. Also, you can take in the sights much better as the stalls are located next to one another. The pathway is actually the circumference around the island. That being said, only a section of the entire pathway is taken up by the food stalls, hence, the remaining parts of the pathway are actually better to be explored if you have some form of transport. There are motorbike taxis at certain points of the pathway, such as where the markets end, where you will not see any crowd beyond. The motorbike taxi can take you through for 50 THB.

To get here, I went to Victory Monument BTS station, and walked to the bus stop that has bus 166. Just tell the ticket conductor you want to go to "Pak kret". The journey took about 1 hour and costs 22 THB. Alight at the stop before the U turn. Then, walk ahead and turn left to Wat Bo temple. Walk through Wat Bo temple and exit through the back. Then walk along the shops lining the road to Wat Sanam Nuea temple. Walk through to the back of this temple to reach the pier to take the boat over to Koh Kret island. Pay the boat fare (3 THB) when reach Ko Kret.

This was a great market. Lots of vendors and stuff to buy. Not to overwhelming but great to wonder through. Lots of food options. Our family (kids 8 abd 10) enjoyed our afternoon there.

Koh Kret is a small island that not well known by the tourist. You can take taxi to Wat Sanam Nuae Pier then take boat cross the river. It is a very short boat rides, less then a minute, it cost 2 Baht in the day time and 3 Baht in the evening.

Once you arrive the pier, turn right to the weekend market. We went there late, so most of the stall is closing, it will be quite interesting if you go there in the morning. We didn't walk or cycle around the island, which you can do so in couples of hours. After the market, we walk backward to the pier and explore the other side. We end our trip at the local brewery 'Chit Beer'.

It is a charming small village, lots of interesting and nice deco cafe and restaurant. Definitely worth half a day trip there.

Was meant to do a tour which got cancelled so i decided to go on my own. I was lucky enough to find info on a blog that said theres a 10am boat on a Sunday (Chao Praya Express) that will go directly to Koh Kret from Sathorn Pier. Took a train and stopped at BTS Saphan Taksin station and its a five minute walk to the pier. I bought a round trip ticket for 180baht.

It was a pleasant journey that took about an hour. You get to the island and you are left to your own devices. There was a small weekend market selling food, I just kept walking. I was told later it was best to walk around the island clockwise, but i went anti-clockwise. I had no particular itinerary, so i just kept walking. I did stop at a small photo studio to get my portrait one as a souvenir for 30 baht(he said it was a weekend special, usual price was 50). i happened upon a pottery factory/shop and got some beautiful tealight holders which they will safely wrap for you to bring home. i was there by lunch time but most of the riverside cafe/restaurants were filled, so i kept walking.

You will pass little houses on stilts and nature. its a very nice village and nice to see the way of life of the people who live there. i hald walked 1/4 way in the path and was about to regret not stopping for food but I somehow found Rongsi Studio which also had Milli cafe which is housed in a 100 yr old former mill. Had my lunch there before continuing my journey.

The whole walk is about 6km. Just do not stray off the main path if you do not have enough time. I got stopped twice by motorcycle taxis offering to take me around but i declined cos i was perfectly fine walking under the hot sun (yes, really). One thought I was crazy. Its a pleasant walk. times when you are alone and its very peaceful. I was on the island for about 4 hours. I was lucky to reach back at the pier by 3.45(they said boat leaves at 4pm), but i was apparently the last one and we then left for bangkok. I was able to get off at ICONSIAM.

Things to note-
-I was there on a Sunday (during covid times) so it wasnt as crowded as I thought it would be.
- most of the signs are in Thai, it was mostly Thai tourists.
- there are various temples on the island, but i did not visit any of them.
- if you dont like walking, you can rent a bicycle but be careful and not be a wobbly cyclists as some parts of the path have to rails/barrier so you may just fall into the water.
-chanced upon a record shop selling vinyls.(altho it was closed that day) but so random!

If you are commuting by Grab/Uber or taxi, make sure you provide the correct address to the temple of which the pier is located. Two baht for the boat to transfer you to Koh Kret across the river (around 5mins). Hire a bicycle for 50 baht and explore the island (quicker). Enjoy different stalls (food market). Highly recommend the oyster restaurant. Clay pottery place was cool and so as the bicycle ride around the island. Chitbeer bar is a popular place for a cold beer but there are also other places to have a beer. Will be back.

If you love craft beer, live entertainment and you make it to Koh Kret during the PM hours of a weekend, there is only one place you need to go - Chet Beer. Upon arrival from the ferry, you can go to right to the near-by what, or you take the sidewalk to the left for a five-minute stroll to Chet Beer, easily the most famous bar on the island. It also serves some of the cheapest craft beer and gourmet hamburgers.

Bus 32 from democracy monument will take you there for less tan 20baht but your bum would probably give out. We took the river ferry to Nothaburri , end of the line north 15baht and connected to the bus there. Walk straight up th main street from the ferry to bus stop . Catch 32 bus for I think 9baht and tell the conductor, have Koh Kret written down in thai or show your phone as it is not the end of the line. Ask around when you get off and you will be directed down a side street to a temple , walk through the temple to the ferry. If it's weekend there are plenty of people to follow. Ferry across to the island is 6baht.
This trip is not for the faint hearted. The bus is not aircon. Tip ... before you set out ask the staff at your hotel to write your destination in thai for you.

Me and my friend went there last year. You can go there by cars or the ferry. The island (or Koh in Thai) is marvelous. I recommend everyone who’s going there arrive there early morning because there are many attraction, restaurants and locals’ shop waiting for you. There are shops the sell various product such as Thai sweet, Thai food or even earthenware, which are produced by the locals. Speaking of locals, they are generous and lovely. This is because they really are locals who created all of things in the island. We visited the Koh Kret Earthenware Housing. Beside from selling earthenware, they host the D.I.Y. clay pot. Staffs will guide you to create your own clay pot. We were happy with the activity. Before we went back, we had a massage at Koh Kret Massage Learning Center. Expert massagers gave us the massage that not only relaxed but also relieved pain. The price was also cheap. We had the great experience there and really recommend to go there.
