Private Transfer – Car or Minibus – Koh Mak

Private transfer by car or minibus is the most convenient and safest way to get to and from Laem Ngop (Krom Luang) Pier for Koh Mak.

Please do read on for a full breakdown of our services, you can jump straight to the relevant section in our FAQs list immediately below. And to cut to the quick, prices are here.


Where can you collect from?

It’s a door to pier service, so we can collect you direct from your hotel or condo in Bangkok or Pattaya. If you are flying into any of the major airports – Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK), Don Mueang Airport (DMK), U-Tapao Airport (UTP) or indeed Trat Airport (TDX) – we can meet you there too.

We can also pick you up from Ban Phe Pier (Koh Samet) or any of those Thailand east coast beach areas.

We specialise too in private transfers from Cambodia or the Cambodian borders. With an early start from Siem Reap, you can be on Koh Mak the same day.

Of course, all transfers are also available in reverse.

Passengers at Suvarnabhumi Airport are met at Level 2 Arrivals, Door 3 and all other meetings places are specified in advance.

How long does the private transfer take?

From hotels in central Bangkok, transfer time is around 4.5 to 5 hours with a couple of stops along the way. The first daily speedboat is at 10.30 Leelawadee, the last one at 16.00, Panan.

As of August 22, the speedboats are running reduced services till next high season.

What vehicles do you use?

We only use SUV style cars such as Fortuner, Xpander, Innova and Pajero. For the private minibus, we normally use Toyota Commuters. All vehicles have seat belts.

We recommend 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 small children for the larger SUV style car and 4 to 8 for the minibus.

Do you have child seats?

Yes, we can supply a free child seat, with an additional one charged at 200bt extra. We also carry a rear facing child seat (Aprica) for infants.

If you require 2 seats, the SUV is fine but a little cramped – remember one of the parents is not driving as at home, so must sit with the seats on the 2nd row. Using a minibus for 2 child seats gives you much more room, but please note, due to the vehicle having only lap seatbelts, only forward facing child seats are possible.

You are also welcome to bring your own child seat – just let us know in advance.

What’s included in the price?

Prices cover all diesel and tollways needed. The cost of the speedboat tickets to or from Laem Ngop (Krom Luang) Pier is not included. We can of course organise them for you.

How do I pay?

You pay for your private transfers with an initial deposit via Thai bank transfer or via PayPal invoice. The balances due are then paid (in THB cash only) on the day of travel. You do not need a PayPal account to pay the invoice, it can be done with any card. The deposit works as a guarantee, both to us and to you.

If time does not allow for a deposit, then yes, we can sometimes book the transfer on trust, whereby you pay direct to the driver on completion of your journey.

Cambodia – Private Transfers to and from Laem Ngop Pier

For Cambodia, a private transfer can be arranged between Laem Ngop Pier and the borders at Aranya Prathet, Had Lek and Ban Pakkad, with prices given below.

We also offer a door to door transfer by private car or private minibus to and from your hotel in Siem Reap, Sihanoukville, Phnom Penh and Battambang. There is always a change of vehicle at the border.

We normally only book transfers into Cambodia if you have an evisa, very easy to order from the official Cambodian government site.

Going to Siem Reap

Cambodian Immigration at the Poipet border is slow so the locals working the queues do offer a so called fast track system at 200bt per person to speed up the process. It’s up to you if your choose to pay it or wait. Our price given below includes fees to the Tourist Police and Parking Association, which must be paid to allow for your collection. Our Cambodian driver waits by Passport Control with a name sign.

Coming from Siem Reap

You need at least a 07.00 or 07.30 start from Siem Reap to make the boats at either 15.00 or 16.00 to Koh Mak – we always say the earlier departure the better. Be prepared for a long wait and queue to clear Thai Immigration – an hour upwards is the norm, much longer on public holidays.


This international transfer service does require a deposit as we pay the Cambodian drivers in advance. If travelling into Cambodia, payment for the balance (after the deposit has been taken) is at the border before you leave Thailand. If coming out from Cambodia, we ask for payment on arrival at your destination in Thailand.

Our comprehensive round-up on travel to and from Cambodia is here.

Please do contact us here for more information or a quotation, giving your full requirements including route, number of people, date of travel, adults and children, hotel names.
