Koh Kred

Koh Kred review Rate it

This rustic car-free island dotted with temples and wooden cottages makes for a languid half-day trip, though it gets busy on weekends. Legend says its ethnic Mon residents can return to Burma upon the collapse of the tilting chedi of Wat Poramai (Wat Mon), which houses a small museum (9am-4pm Mon-Fri, 0 2584 5120). Like another Wat Chimphlu on the northern side it displays Mon banners shaped like millipedes. The village lane between them has pottery workshops, the endearingly haphazard Khwam Aman Pottery Museum (9am-5pm daily, 0 2584 5086, 0 2583 4134), massage salas, restaurants and, on weekends, a packed market of speciality foods. An 8km path loops the island via farms and a traditional candy shop, taking two hours to stroll, but most go round by boat.
