See another side of Bangkok on this day trip to the historic man-made island of Koh Kret. First, hop aboard the express shuttle boat down Chao Phraya River, sailing by the majestic architecture of the city as you cruise out. Arrive at Nonthaburi Pier and stretch your legs with a stroll around the market before catching a local bus bound for Pak Kret.
A short ferry ride will take us to Koh Kret and we disembark at Wat Poramai Yikawat, the islands main temple famous for its collect of Mon-style stupas. Although only 20 kilometers from the metropolis, the only forms of transport here are bicycles, boats or two feet!
Grab your bicycle and set off on the 7km circuit of the island - the perfect front row seat to watch local life unfold as you cycle past rural scenery. Ride to a nearby artisan village to learn about the traditional Thai art of pottery making, before taking a turn on the potters wheel before lunch.
Then, leave your bicycle behind for a long-tail boat ride around the island and the dessert canal to learn the secrets behind the islands sweet treats!
Then, explore Wat Saeng Siritham and the nearby floating market before wrapping up your journey with a public bus ride back to Bangkok city center.
