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’ specifically 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.  But unfortunately, it doesn’t run down the east coast of Koh Chang.

The total travelling time from Trat Airport to your hotel on Koh Chang will be around 2 to 2 and a half hours.  From the airport to the ferry pier is just a 20 minute drive. 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. There is also a kiosk selling drinks and snacks on board the boat. Once on Koh Chang, the driving time to your hotel is anywhere from 15 minutes (for visitors staying on White Sand beach) to an 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 decide to change hotels or flights.

For flights departing from Trat, the minibus will pick passengers up around 3 and a half to 4 hours before the flight departure time.

There is a 15% discount for booking the return trip in advance.

    Already 2 times in one week, I have tried to book a private transfer from Trat airport to Koh Chang, using the form on this site.

    However, so far, I did not get any email back.

    Is there any other way to book or is this site not working ?
