Boat Trip to Koh Kret in Nonthaburi
 I love doing these boats trips on the Chao Phraya. Every now and then they do different kinds of trips. The other day was a three temple boat tour. A couple of weeks ago I joined them for the boat tour to Ayutthaya. Follow me on Twitter for news about their next trips.
 This is the famous ‘Leaning Pagoda’ on Koh Kret. This is an island on the Chao Phraya River created when they dug a shortcut canal to make the journey to Ayutthaya quicker. This was back in the days when Ayutthaya was the capital. It took us about one hour and 15 minutes.
 I had a really good time exploring Koh Kret this afternoon. The boat dropped us off at around 11:20am and then we had just over three hours to explore the island which was enough time. I first walked through the market and took a look at a few of the Mon style temples.
 There was certainly a lot of delicious food on offer on Koh Kret and so make sure you go there hungry. I came across this guy that was selling something that I hadn’t seen before. It would be nice to find a homestay and spend a few days here so I can eat all that is on offer.
 Koh Kret is also famous for pottery so make sure you visit one of these potteries. You can even have a go yourself. One other activity you can do is hire a bicycle for around 40-50 Baht for the day. #Thailand
 After walking around for a while, I ended up at Chitbeer for lunch. They don’t actually sell food as their speciality is craft beer. But you can buy elsewhere and eat here. In the end I spent about an hour or so here as it’s a nice location by the river.
 Today I was on a special boat trip to Koh Kret organized by the Chao Phraya Express boat company. The boat left Sathorn Pier at 10:00am and we returned just before 4:00pm. Cost was only 150 Baht. The next trip is advertised for 28 August.
 For those people asking, here’s the advertisement for the special boat trip to Koh Kret. The next one is on 28 August. You can take the green flag commuter boats during the week but there’s not much open on Koh Kret. The best time to visit is at the weekends.
