Why this trip?
this wonderful place. A quick ferry ride across the river takes you away from the madness of Bangkok and into the tranquility of Ko-Kret. Pottery, gifts and food is all very reasonably priced and plentiful. This was a wonderful experience!

Fun informative exciting
We had a great time with Siriphong. His wife accompanied us which was lovely. There was a mixture of walking and trips in the tuk tuk. We got to experience a local feel of Bangkok and sample some of the local foods inc. Pad Thai and roasted chestnuts. It was a thoroughly enjoyable tour and Siriphong and his wife were really welcoming, friendly and ensured that we were having fun throughout
The perfect trip
We were two guys and had such ah great time with Siripong. He is such ah warmly and friendly tour guide. Really enjoyed the amazing tour with him.
The local was not a local! We walked a fair bit before hailing a Tuk Tuk which he expected me to pay for. Did not know much on the history of the 2 temples we visited and his English was very poor
