Welcome to Koh Kret!

Ko Kret (also Ko Kred) is an island in the Chao Phraya River, 20 km north of Bangkok in Nonthaburi Province, Thailand. The island continues to serve as a refuge to the Mon tribes who dominated central Thailand between the 6th and 10th centuries and have retained a distinct identity in their flavor of Buddhism and, particularly at Ko Kret, their pottery and traditional desserts. Ko Kret is a historical and traditional community which has diverse customs, unique form of art and distinct social practices. It is a wonderful place for “Cultural Tourism”. Ko Kret is another world compared to Bangkok and much of it retains the air of a rustic village, with wooden shacks propped against palm trees and the occasional dilapidated temple slowly crumbling.
