bang bao boats slow boat koh chang island hopping The wooden passenger ferry boat, slower and cheaper, goes to Koh Wai and Kok Mak as standard. In high season, it goes all the way to Koh Kood, docking at Ao Salad Pier, but you would need to check this once on the island.

If the wooden boat is not going all the way to Koh Kood, you must get out at Koh Mak, again the pier at Koh Mak Resort and wait for the 2nd speedboat of the day to come through from Koh Chang 2 hours later. The ticket price is still charged as if making the whole journey by the cheaper boat. If coming from Koh Kood, you can do this in reverse, using the speedboat to Koh Mak, waiting at the pier for 2 hours and then taking the slow ferry boat via Koh Wai back to Koh Chang.

May to October – Koh Chang Island Hopping

These Koh Chang island hopping boats do not run during the rainy season, so you will have to return to the mainland using the main ferries and then travel along the coast to make the boat connections from Laem Ngop Pier for Koh Mak and from Laem Sok Pier for Koh Kood.

For Koh Mak, it’s cheapest and very easy to take a songthaew taxi on Koh Chang to the pier, then hop in a Trat bound taxi on the other side and ask them to drop you at Laem Ngop Pier. This mainland taxi leg is 50bt per person from Centerpoint Pier or 300bt minimum charge from Thammachat Pier.

For Koh Kood, there are no share options so you will need a private transfer. Prices are from 2,000bt for a car for 2 pax with ferry tickets from Koh Chang but excluding the boat tickets to Koh Kood.

From Salak Phet area – Koh Chang Island Hopping –

If staying on the Koh Chang East Coast, there is no Koh Chang island hopping service out to the islands unless you rent a private boat at 5,000bt upwards. Tickets you may see advertised near to Salak Phet for Koh Wai, Koh Mak and Koh Kood will, in fact, take you on a taxi back to White Sand Beach to join the free morning transfer that the boats operate to Bang Bao or Kai Bae respectively.
