Pottery Island

Yesterday I went with Catherine and Darcy to Ko Kred, a small island in Bangkok known as "Pottery Island" in English. We had heard that it is very difficult to get to but we were up to the challenge.
It turns out that we live relatively close to Ko Kred, and it was a mere taxi ride and short ferry to get there. The island is car-free and small and it seems like a totally different world than Bangkok. It's hard to believe that you're still in Bangkok when you walk around this artisan-inhabited island.

The island is about six kilometers around, and we walked about half of it. Potters make and display their wares along with people selling desserts and food. It's really neat: there are all kinds of interesting things to buy at good prices and it's nice to know that you're buying direct from the maker of the goods.
Another fun little day outing discovered in Bangkok!

Until next time,
