Flying to Trat Airport for Koh Mak

By flying with Bangkok Airways between Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) and Trat Airport (TDX), you can connect with the daily speedboats to or from Koh Mak.

Coming down, you want the lunchtime flight PG305, whereas going back you can use either the lunchtime PG306 or the afternoon PG308.

Trat Airport itself is about 25 minutes from Laem Ngop, the mainland pier for Koh Mak.

What Flights to Trat Airport Make the Connections to Koh Mak?

With the lunchtime flight PG305 (31/3/24 to 26/10/24, summer timetable), departing Suvarnabhumi Airport at 11.40, arriving at Trat Airport at 12.40, you can connect to the 14.00 (Leelawadee). There is a fallback option at 16.00 (Panan).

Once Bangkok Airways switches to its winter timetable (27/10/24 to around 30/3/25), the PG305 lands at 13.40 so you can won’t make the 14.00 boat connection. Use the 16.00 as above.

The last flight of the day, PG307, departing Suvarnabhumi Airport at 16.15, arriving at 17.15 (all year), will not make any boat connections. If you do find yourself on this flight, you can stay the night in either Trat or a guesthouse in Laem Ngop and start afresh the next day.

The first speedboat daily is at 10.00 (M Marine), followed by Leelawadee at 10.30 and Koh Mak Ferry (actually a speedboat) at 11.00. Always check ahead as the timetables change in quieter months.

Laem Ngop guesthouses will normally run you to the pier for free whilst from Trat, your hotel or guesthouse will organise a songthaew share taxi, 60bt per person or minimum charge of 300bt.

All speedboat details are here at Koh Mak ferry and speedboat, including changes during rainy season, end of May to end of October.


Boats and Return Flights

The lunchtime PG306 departs at 13.10 under the summer timetable (31/3/24 to 26/10/24) so you use the 10.00 Panan off the island to make Trat Airport in good time. We can supply the private SUV car (975bt) as needed from the pier.

Once on the winter timetable (27/10/24 to around 30/3/25), the PG306 departs at 14.10 so use the 11.30 Leelawadee docking at 12.30.

For the PG308 at 17.50 (all year), take the 13.30 Panan, docking at 14.30, though it does mean a bit of a wait at Trat. You could also take the Seudamgo coming from Koh Kood (13.50) which calls in at Koh Mak (14.20), leaving onwards at 14.40, docking at 15.20 at Laem Sok Pier, 550bt per person.


Transfers to Laem Ngop Pier

From Trat Airport to Laem Ngop Pier, there are private transfers or share songthaew taxis only.

These private transfers to Laem Ngop Pier are list priced at 975bt for an SUV style car (3/4 pax) or 1,500bt for a minibus (4 to 8 persons). We can organise everything for you, meeting passengers at Arrivals at Trat Airport with a name sign or directly off the boats on their return.

If travelling from Laem Sok Pier (see above) for the early evening PG308 flight, the private car is 1,500bt and the private minibus is 1,800bt.

The share songthaew taxis are 250bt per person between Laem Ngop Pier and Trat Airport.
