Birthday Tour To Koh Kred

Actually my birthday is 2 of April but in Koh Kred open shops only Sat-Sun.

I wanna make trip to go back to where i live since i was born until 8 years old on 1st April 2007

I think some of you would like to join.


Koh Kred (Kred Island)

Koh Kred is a tiny island in the Chao Phraya River, located in Nonthaburi Province,

only 30-45 minutes drive from Bangkok. On this island live a community of craftmen famous for their distinctive style of pottery which dates

back many centuries.

The potteries are known for their fine, red-black glazed surface and intricate design. They are all hand-made piece-by-piece and you can see the process.

People live on Koh Kred and nearby are the descendants

of the Mon people (But i'm not Mon people LOL :lol: ), and they have managed to retain the skills of their forefathers.

(Thanks to www.bangkoksite.com for details about Koh Kred :)

More *UPDATE* The Places that we will go to visit.

Wat Poramai-yikawat

This temple constructed in Mon style architecture, was built about 200 years ago. In 1873 King Rama V visited the temple and ordered

the renovation and later on reconstruction of the main temple.The main attractions are a large reclining Buddha, mural paintings, a Mon style marble carved pagoda

Museum at Wat Poramai-yikawat

A small museum, full of interesting collections, is located

near the main temple. Photo taking is allowed here.


The villagers produce Mon style pottery

One village where a 200-year-old tradition continues is "Kwan Arman"

Earthenware water jars have been used in Kingdom from before the Ayutthaya period to store and keep rainwater cool. That jars are strikingly similar to those produced centuries ago. Made from clay once sourced locally, but now brought in from Phathum Thani, they are carefully incised by hand with ornate decorations. Each jar is capped with a distinctive pointed lid, shaped like the temple chedis so prominent in Buddhist society. To promote evaporation and thus cooling, the goundshaped jars are left unglazed and placed on raised perforated stands to encourage air circulation. Recently, a museum was opened on the island which houses an impressive collection of beautifuuly made jars, some dating back to the time of the arrival of the Mons.

Quick, fluid movements and strength ensure that the clay rises from the wheel head and is skillfully shaped into bowls. The entire process -- from lump of clay to shaped pot -- takes just over a minute. A thrower here can produce between 300 and 700 pots a day depending on the size, a truly impressive combination of expertise and stamina.

Wat Pailom

Wat Pilom is another old temple which was constructed during the late Ayutthaya period. It has beautiful architecture and located not far from Wat Poramaiyikawat


Homemade Desserts Centre

Traditional Thai desserts are made by local people here. Visitors can only come to this place by boat and especially during the week-end there are demonstrations on the actual making of desserts. Lunch is also served here with the seating capacity of about 300-400 people





(Thanks www.geocities.com , www.bangkoksite.com for details :) )
