TOUR MAP
ITINERARY BY DAY

See another side of Bangkok on this day trip to the historic manmade 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. From here, catch the ferry to the island and disembark in front of Wat Poramai Yikawat, the island’s main temple famous for its collection of Mon-style stupas. Although only 20 kilometres from the metropolis, the only forms of transport here are bicycles, boats or two feet!

Grab your bicycle and set off on the 7 kilometre 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 potter’s 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 island’s sweet treats! While you're here, roll up your sleeves and try your hand at making some of your own candy creations. Then, explore Wat Saeng Siritham and the nearby floating market before wrapping up your journey with a public bus ride back to Bangkok city centre.
