Pak Kret (Thai: ปากเกร็ด, pronounced [pàːk krèt]) is a district (amphoe) in the northeastern part of Nonthaburi Province, central Thailand.

Geography[edit]

Leaning chedi on Ko Kret

The district is in the northeast of the province. It borders (from north clockwise) the districts Lat Lum Kaeo and Mueang Pathum Thani of Pathum Thani Province, Don Mueang and Lak Si of Bangkok, and Mueang Nonthaburi and Bang Bua Thong of Nonthaburi.

The district is crossed by the Chao Phraya River. A large oxbow of the river has been shortened by a canal, Khlong Lat Kret, dug in 1722 in the Ayuthaya Era, to form the island of Ko Kret.

Administration[edit]

The district is divided into 12 sub-districts (tambon). These are further subdivided into 85 villages (muban).
