Koh Kret Island (Northern Bangkok)

Koh Kret is an artificial Island created in the 18th century, in the Chao Phraya river, 20km north of Bangkok. The Mon, natives of South China, were one of the first tribes to settle in Thailand. Between the 6th and 10th century, they were dominating central Thailand. Today Koh Kret constitute one of the last refuges for the Mon traditional culture.mThe Island is considered for his special Mon earthenware pottery called Kwan Aman. This pottery is unglazed terracotta carved with different patterns. The Chinese influences of the Mon tribes can be seen in the artistry and the subject matters.
