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 last drop of location on the east coast is Serenity Resort.

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. 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 10% discount for booking the return trip in advance.

To Hotels in Trat Town:

Trat is a sleepy provincial town which many people just pass through on their way elsewhere.  However, it’s a pleasant stop for a night and nowadays many people spend the day there on their way to Koh kood.

In the past couple of years several new value for money hotels have opened. These include Trat City Hotel, Toscana Hotel,  Chivapuri Trat, Trat Centre Hotel plus long time favorites Pop Guesthouse and Rimklong Boutique Hotel.

The shared minibus service from Trat Airport can drop you off at any of these hotels or other guesthouses in the town centre.

    Hello!

    We are arriving from Bangkok to Trat airport on 27th of November with flight PG309 (14:45-15:45) and we are planning to spend one night in Trat town centre. Is shared bus the only way to reach the down? Does it need to be booked in advance?

    Thank you for help! 🙂

      You can also take a local pick up truck taxi to Trat town. It will be cheaper than the minibus, but won’t drop you off at a specific hotel. Just in the town centre or bus station. You can buy minibus tickets when you land in Trat.

      During High Season, November to May, there are daily boats between the islands. So no problem getting from Koh Chang to Koh Mak or Koh Kood. But the boats don’t run in the Low Season. You have to take a boat from the mainland to get there. See: https://kohchangferries.com/boats-koh-mak-koh-kood/ for details of boats between the islands.

      You won’t have any problem getting to Koh Chang if you take flight PG307. Even if the flight is delayed a couple of hours, a special ferry will be organised for passengers.

    Coming to Koh Chang for a holiday this May 2019.
    Have booked one-way BangkokAir flight from Trat to Bangkok for my return trip home TDX->BKK flight PG306 (13:10 – 14:10).
    Can I pre-book a one-way shuttle from Khlong Prao Beach to Trat airport for the 17 May transfer to the airport?
    And what time would I need to be picked up from Khlong Prao Beach accommodation to arrive Trat airport in time for the 13:10 flight to BKK?
    Many thanks…

        Thanks TDX for your reply – appreciated.

        Two more questions please…

        1. Can I book the Koh Chang to Trat Airport one-way transfer (550฿) on your website booking form once I’m at Koh Chang and have selected my accommodation location (Klong Prao beach area)?

        2. My Trat (TDX) PG306 flight to Bangkok ( BKK) arriving Suvarnabhumi Airport is at 13:10 – 14:10 (already booked). I have same day international flight departing Suvarnabhumi at 18:10 (BKK -> SYD Australia). Do I have enough time to transfer myself from Suvarnabhumi Domestic arrival to International departure on the day with my flight booked?

        Thank you for your assistance 🙂

          Hi. You can book the minibus tickets when you are on Koh Chang. And you’ll have plenty of time to transit in Bangkok for your international flight.

    What is latest check-in at Trat Airport for going to Bangkok?

      You should be at the airport at least an hour before departure time. But if you get delayed due to the ferry being busy or missing a boat from one of the islands you’ll still be able to get on the pane if you arrive within 30 minutes of departure time.

      Note that it always best to allow extra time in case of boats being busy or vehicles having to wait to get off Koh Chang. Especially at this time of year.

    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 ?

        We are planning to travel to Koh Kood in 21th to 26 of August from Bangkok. What are you recomend us about timetables? I’m reading your information, but i don’t know wich is the best option. We want to get the ferry the same day of our flights and if it is possible no waste too much time at the airport. How it’s low season there are less ferrys and flights… thank you!

          See : kohkoodferries.com for ferry timetables.

          If you want to be sure of getting to Koh Kood the same day, you have to take flight PG301 from Bangkok.

            But, to return? In the post you say that the only ones who can return the dame day are the flights PG310 and PG308, but the PG310 doesn’t work in our dates… so, it’s possible to get the private transfer in any hour? Because we want to return earlier…
