Pak Kret, Thai: paakekrd; pronounced [pa-kret]), is a city in Nonthaburi Province (Thailand). It is located in the Central Thai Plains, on the east bank the lower Chao Phraya River. It borders Bangkok to the east and Nonthaburi City, to the south. To the north, it is Pathum Thani Province. It is part the Bangkok Metropolitan Region megalopolis. Pak Kret, with a population of 190 272, is Thailand's third-most populous municipality (thesaban nukhaon).

Pak Kret has been inhabited at least since the 18th Century, when it was under the Ayutthaya kingdom. To the west of Pak Kret's city centre, the Chao Phraya River was excavated in 1721-1722 to avoid a bend in river. This formed the island of Ko Kret. The settlements at the bypass canal's mouth and bank became known as Ban Tret Noi and Ban Pak Tret Noi, respectively. This was done to bypass a bend in the river and create the island of Ko Kret. During the Ayutthaya-early-Rattanakosin period, many ethnic Mon communities settled the area.

Pak Kret was created as a sanitation area (sukhaphiban), on 31 August 1955. It includes the Pak Kret District east, which is the Bang Phut, Bang Mai, Bang Talat and Khlong Kluea Subdistricts. It was established as a subdistrict municipality on January 1992. Later, it was upgraded to city status and town status on February 5, 1996 and April 20, 2000. [3] Bangkok grew rapidly in the 20th century. Pak Kret also saw its paddies, orchards, converted into housing estates, and other residential areas.
