Practical information about Koh Kret island
An exotic tour you can do for a day or half a day or longer if you decide to stayin one of the few guesthouses on the island.
I also advise you to visit the Wat Bang Chak temple, and its large seated Buddha opposite to Koh Kret island. There is a ferry that connects the 2 shores for 3 THB. This temple is really amazing and for me more interesting than any temple in Koh Kret.
To go visit Koh Kret island, you can also book one of the tours above.
How to get to Koh Kret island ?
To get to Koh Kred, go to the Pak Kred pier then take the boat to the island. The crossing costs 15 baht.
There are many buses going to Pak Kred, including bus number 6, 32, 104, 166 and 505. We took bus 166 from Victory Monument. The pier is located where the road makes a U-turn under the bridge. The total trip from the center of Bangkok takes about an hour (depending on the traffic in Bangkok of course).
The pronunciation of Koh Kret is not obvious, we advise you to take a photographs of the islands or a paper with Ko Kred written in Thai to be sure to be understood by the bus or taxi driver.
On Saturday and Sunday, there is an Express Boat which goes directly to the island. If you go by car, in general, people park their cars at Sanam Nua Pier and take the ferry (15 baht).
