If the big city of Bangkok is proving to be a little intense for you, then a short city escape to Koh Kret or "Dessert Island" maybe just what the doctor ordered. Situated on a canal, Koh Kret is a haven of local life, luscious greenery and local specialities. Let the wind rustle your hair as you sail down river before arriving at the island to start the 7km bike ride around the island. Along the way meet and greet the locals, before stopping at an artisan village to get a class in pottery making. Master the wheel and create yourself a piece of pottery with your own special touch. After lunch trade your peddles for a paddle and set out on a canal trip into the 'dessert' canal where you will learn about some sweet treats produced on this island. Finally check out the floating market before heading back to the big city.
