NORTHERN THAILAND'S HIGHLIGHTS

Popular Tours around Bangkok
Ko Kret
Location : An islet in the middle of the Chao Phraya River a little way from Bangkok's northern edge.

This islet, which is worth a one-day visit, is home of a Mon community that immigrated from their homeland in Burma more than 300 years ago. The islet is well known as a centre of earthenware production -- the Mons' inherited art, and a market of authentic Mon-style pottery. An exhibit of local pottery and a demonstration of its making can be seen at the Ceramics Centre.

Ko Kret Earthernware

Apart from earthenware, here is also a centre of Thai desserts, many of which are of traditional kinds and rare to find elsewhere.
Another major attraction of Ko Kret is its ancient temples of the Ayutthaya period (1350 - 1767), e.g. Wat Paramaiyikawat, Wat Klang Kret and Wat Chimplee.
