Ko Kret offers a concrete path that circles the island and therefore it is easy to visit and get a good glimpse of how people live there. As soon as you get away from the pier area which is cluttered with stalls selling food and...More

This place is a bit off the beaten path of the foreign tourists. It is a temple on a large island which is an enjoyable stop. I was the only non Asian on the island for my two hour stop. As always you are made...More

It's quite interesting if you'd like to see how Thai local people live on an island. You need to cross the river to reach this small crowded island with just THB 2 per trip. The path on this island is quite narrow to walk pass...More

Something of an effort to get here but well worth the relaxed trip. First the river bus from the Royal Palace jetty to Nothanburi takes around 40 minutes (14 baht) then a 15 minute taxi drive to the temple landing stage to get the two...More

Great day out. We had heard about Ko Kret and decided it was worth a visit and we were not disappointed. We looked at different transport options and in the end we went by Grab taxi to Wat Sanam Nuea on a Saturday and caught...More

有名な観光地と聞いていたので週末ドライブがてらバンコク都のお隣ノンタブリー県へ。Google mapで調べたらフェリー乗場と記載されていた場所が実は渡し船の発着場、と言うのには笑えました。大人1人2バーツでクレット島へ。到着して右手へと歩いていけば島唯一の繁華なマーケットへ行かれたのに何も知らない私達は島民の行く左方面へ。島内に車がないのが良く分かる道をのんびり散歩していたらバイタクのおばちゃんに声を掛けられレストランに行くんなら4km歩くよ、って脅かされて2人で乗せてもらってぐるっと島を4/5周、で1人80バーツっておばちゃん遣り手だ!最初に右手へと突き進んでいれば10分程度で着けた場所。帰り歩いて分かった事です。でもマーケットでは可愛い植木が超安値で売ってたりスィーツや陶器も沢山あって見たり買ったりして楽しめます。陶器の窯もあちこちにあるので見て回るのも面白いかも。私達は見に行ったけど誰もおりませんでした。でもバイタクでぐるっと回って島内見学も出来てまずまず楽しい観光が出来ました。レンタル自転車は40バーツで借りられます。タイは2人乗り自転車で後ろにもちゃんとクッション付いてますよ。チャオプラヤ川を見ながらのランチはまるでアユタヤへ行ったような気分になれるかも! I've heared Ko Kret is a famous sight in Thai, we drove to there. I checked a place of the ferry to there, but we found it was just a wharf. Just funny! The ship fee is just 2baths per 1 adult.

Ko Kret (on a Monday) was quiet, peaceful. My friend and I hired bikes and rode around the small island. It is approximately 8km. We passed banana trees, palms, smiling people. We stopped to indulge in a Thai Lemon Tea which was authentic and aroi...More

Good place near Bangkok for the peace and traditional lovers. Located in a nice place surrounded by river. Not an attractive place for the kids.

Went here with friends during the week and most of it was closed. It's a nice 5.2 kilometre walk around the island. Well worth it. Although on weekends the stalls are open and plenty of places to eat. So go check it out
