How to get from Trat Airport to Koh Chang, Koh Mak and Koh Kood.

How to get from Trat Airport to Koh Chang, Koh Mak and Koh Kood.

Shared Minibus To Koh Chang:

For anyone heading straight to Koh Chang, Trat airport is conveniently located approximately 20 minutes drive from Ao Thammachat ferry pier.  A shared minibus service is run between the airport and resorts on the west coast of Koh Chang by ‘Krungthep Limousine’ for Bangkok Airways passengers.   This operates in accordance with the flight schedule.  The service drops off and picks up passengers from all resorts on the west coast of the island.  Unfortunately, it doesn’t run down the east coast of Koh Chang.

Ferries run every 45 minutes from early morning until 19:00.  (Passengers arriving on PG307 are guaranteed to make the last ferry as, even if the flight is delayed, it will wait for passengers coming from Trat Airport.  Or in the case of very rare extreme delays, a special ferry will be run to ensure passengers get to their hotel on Koh Chang the same night. )

The ferry crossing takes around 30 minutes.  During this time you’ll be able to sit upstairs and enjoy the view as you head towards the island. Once on Koh Chang, the driving time to your hotel is anywhere from 15 minutes (for visitors staying on White Sand beach) to and hour (for hotels in Bangbao or on Klong Kloi beach.)

Bangkok Airways passengers can buy either a single or a return ticket. For online bookings, advance payment by Paypal or credit card is required.  The tickets will be booked for you and you just give the staff your booking reference when you land. Simple. 🙂

If you are booking a return ticket, you will be given a voucher to hand the driver when he picks you up for the journey back to Trat Airport.  This will also have a phone number of the minibus company, in case you change hotels or flights.

      You should leave your hotel around 09:30. The easiest way is to book tickets for the shared minibus service that picks up from hotels on Koh Chang and goes to Trat Airport.

    Hi,

    I haven’t booked anything yet, but I wanted to book a flight from Trat airport to Bangkok on the 8th that departs at 10:10, but I am not sure if I’ll make it from here the place I stay at (Oasis hotel near Lonely beach). And if I can book a shared minibus this early.
    Thank you in advance,

      Book the flight and then buy a ticket for the shared minibus run by Krungthep Limousine for Bangkok Airways passengers. You’d be picked up around 06:30. Ticket price is 500 Baht. Can buy from any tour agent in Lonely beach.

      You won’t miss the last ferry. If the flight is delayed a special ferry will be provided for Bangkok Airways passengers.

      You won’t find any report on Tripadvisor or other travel site from people complaining they weren’t able to get to Koh Chang the same evening.

      Don’t worry. You’ll get to Koh Chang the same evening. The last ferry always waits for passengers coming from PG307. And if the flight is delayed a long time, Bangkok Airways arranges a special ferry for passengers.

      So you’ll definitely get here the same evening.

      The shared minibus will pick you up around 09:30. Likewise if you want to book a private transfer, then the pick up time should be 9.30.

      Ferries can often be very busy mid morning in high season.

    Hi,
    I have booked my hotel on Koh Kod early December and now need to sort out my transfer from Bangkok. I have a few questions:
    – How do I book the 700Baht bus from Trat airport to Laem Sok Pier? Can it be done online?
    – If I arrive with the PG305 at 12.40, will I make it on time for the last boat? (14.20 or 14.30) Or is there a risk that the flight or transfer from airport are delayed? I am starting to think the plane offers limited benefits (traffic in Bangkok to airport means waking up early anyway) whereas Bonsiri is a door to door service.
    – 1st week of December: should i book the boat in advance? I would prefer the speedboat as it is faster but I read it can be canceled in case of rough seas so I don’t want to be left stranded at Trat.
    Thanks for your help.

      – Please use the form on this page to book the ticket.
      – If you are on PG305 you will get to the pier in time for the Boonsiri Catamaran at 14:20. If the plane is delayed then you might not make it in time. But that is very rare.
      – There’s no need to book in advance. You can buy a boat ticket at the pier.

      The first public boat off Koh Kood is at 09:00. So, you will have to stay the night in Trat or take a private boat from Koh Kood to Laem Sok.

          Two hours before isn’t necessary. An hour will be OK. Trat City hotel, Rimklong Boutique Hotel, Chivapuri Residence, Toscana Hotel are some nice places to stay for 1,000 – 1,500 Baht / night.
