Transportation From Bangkok To Koh Chang Island
Taking a private transfer by car or minibus is an increasingly popular way to get to Koh Chang. Trips to Koh Chang island can be booked through any of the travel agents on Kao Sarn road, or anywhere else in the city and most of them will take you directly to the pier at Laem Ngop, while some may even take you all the way to the siam beach resort on Koh Chang island.
Getting to to a remote tropical island in the Gulf of Thailand when you don’t speak the local language can seem overwhelming, but as our Australian bangkok to koh samet friends say: No worries, mate!” This is exactly why we started helping friends with their island transfers – so we can help you experience our beautiful home here in Koh Chang hassle-free!
There are three main ferry operators, Koh Chang ferry (from Ao Thammachat to Koh Chang Dan Mai Pier), Centre Point Ferry (from Centre Point Pier to Koh Chang Dan Kao Cabana Pier) and Ferry Koh Chang (from Thammachart Bay Pier to Koh Chang Sapparod Bay Pier).
Depending on the number of passengers we offer either cars for 2 persons (picture on the left), family-cars for 4 persons (picture on the right – if not available you will get a small minibus) and minibuses (see picture above) for a maximum of 8 persons.
People need to know that Cherdchai has an express bus and a slow bus (the one which stops at many destinations) – I always tell people to make sure they take the express bus and they never take longer than 3-and-a half hours to get to our closest bus stop which is about 30 minutes before Chanthaburi and on the way to Ko Chang.
