Craft Your Day on Koh Kret

Immerse in the world of Thai arts and crafts in a riverside community
that specialises in traditional Thai pottery and other handicrafts.


Spend the day learning about Thai traditional handicrafts in a small village in the Chao Phraya River. Explore a community that makes pottery and an artist’s house that crafts exquisite khon masks

This is one of our Sustainable Trails, an excursion that maximizes positive impacts on local communities and minimizes negative impacts on the environment in the following ways:

Eat locally – Enjoy local dishes and snacks made using locally-sourced ingredients;
Transport alternatively – This Nonthaburi adventure is mostly spent on your own two feet;
Experience meaningfully – Visit fascinating workshops that benefit financially from your visit, even if you don’t buy anything.


Full Day Craft Your Day on Koh Kret

Your adventure starts with a ferry journey across the Chao Phraya to Koh Kret, a tiny island in the river that is home to a small community of craftsmen famed for their distinctive pottery. A leisurely stroll enables exploration of market stalls and the opportunity to taste delicious snacks before we view a traditional pottery workshop to watch artisans create unique red-black glazed products. You can try your hand at creating your own simple earthenware. We then visit Baan Silp Siam, an artist’s house focused on traditional Thai arts including khon masks and handicrafts. Lunch is served at a small restaurant overlooking the river, followed by a ‘DIY’ (do it yourself) coffee where you get to roast the coffee beans on a stove, grind them and make the coffee yourself. We end the perfect day at Chit Beer, a small riverside bar to enjoy a Thai craft beer, followed by the drive back to the hotel.
