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.

      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.

      I don’t think you will get here the same day. There isn’t enough time go by car from Bangkok to Koh Chang. You could try to take PG307, but if your flight is late you probably won’t be able to check in on time for it.

      It is better to have a night at a hotel in Bangkok and next day come to Koh Chang.

      It is possible to arrange a private boat to Koh Chang. That would be 4,000 Baht. And another vehicle to take you from the pier to Mercure Hideaway is 1,000 Baht.

      Yes. It’s possible. If the flight is on time you won’t have any problems catching the Boonsiri Ferry.

      It’s better to take a private transfer, as the price will be about the same or cheaper for 2 or more passengers. And you won’t have to wait for other passengers.
