The island in the Chao Phraya River near Bangkok (Ko Kret)

The real fun of Ko Kret is cruising through the tiny hamlets, enjoying the soothing rural views and stopping for a cool drink as the mood strikes. However, there are a few tourist attractions on the island. Arguably the biggest sight is Wat Poramai Yikawat. Located across from Ko Kret’s main pier, this Buddhist temple has a Mon-style marble Buddha statue and a museum with religious objects and exhibits on local pottery. But the temple’s most famous landmark is undoubtedly the 200-year-old leaning stupa that juts out from the island’s northeastern corner, go in either direction to find both abandoned kilns and working pottery centres on the island’s east and north coasts. This is because    Ko Kret is known for its hand-thrown terracotta pots, sold at markets throughout Bangkok; order an iced coffee from just about any vendor on the island and you’ll get a small one as a souvenir.

Bang Luang market – an old market with a story to tell – is located in Bang Lane district, Nakhon Pathom. This is a traditional marketplace on Suphan Buri riverbank where local residents still live and trade here as when it first began hundreds of years ago. Nowadays, it remains vibrant and retains the atmosphere of a traditional market. The mark of Bang Luang market are ancient wooden townhouses built during the reign of King Rama V. The market takes place on both sides of Chiang Rai road to the riverbank. Although it stretches for a mere 200 meters, it looks like a living museum that displays the harmonious integration of Thai and Chinese cultures. On weekdays, the place is slightly quiet however the weekends are crowded with vendors. Some have their own kiosks, while some roam around with pushcarts. Most of the goods sold here are foodstuff, such as; pad thai, tua pab (sweet rice dessert with yellow beans), freshly made rice noodle crepes with shrimp and assorted vegetables. You may wish to try the food from houseboats to get the riverside atmosphere, or indulge yourself with a cup of coffee in one of the vintage coffee shops. When visiting Bang Luang market, most tourists are tempted to try chun pia, a traditional Teochew Chinese recipe. It consists of fried egg spring rolls stuffed with minced pork, dried shrimp and chive leaves served without any sauce. It is very likely to find many stalls selling Chun Pia. However, among those, Jantima is the original. Traditional Thai desserts are a popular souvenir choice.
