Ko Kret (เกาะเกร็ด) is a small man-made island in Chao Phraya River in Nonthaburi Province. The island is located 20 kilometers north of Bangkok. Ko Kret was created by digging a canal between two curves of Chao Phraya River. There are no major roads and, of course, no cars on the island. As Ko Kret is a bit out of the way, there are not many foreign tourists but lots of locals on the island so you can get a good glimpse of how Thai and Mon people live there.

This one-day itinerary is exactly the same like we completed when visiting Maeklong Railway Market (Talad Rom Hub) and Amphawa Floating Market from Bangkok and using exclusively local transportation along the way.
