With the island’s development, the number of options on how to get to Koh Chang has grown in step with the increasing visitor numbers.
- For style, speed and comfort, we recommend a private transfer by SUV car or minibus. Travel time from east Bangkok to the Koh Chang ferry piers is between 4.5 and 5 hours.
- You could also fly down to Trat Airport in just under an hour but remember you still need to get to and from the Airports at both ends.
- For a more economical choice, the hotel to hotel share minibus service is very popular. It has fixed pick-up times, 5 hours+ to the pier.
- If you are on a tight budget, you can hop on the public bus. Allow 6 hours or more travel time for this.
- The two car ferries make the crossing continuously throughout the day till 19.30. It’s 30 to 60 minutes from the mainland piers to the island.
- Once docked, it takes from 10 minutes to 45 minutes to reach your resort – dependent on its location.
- To travel between Koh Chang, Koh Mak, Koh Kood and Koh Wai, there’s a full island hopping service with speedboat, catamaran or wooden boat.
- On Koh Chang, you can hire cars or motorbikes to get around or use the island taxi service.
