1) Arrival information

To travel to Koh Chang, you always arrive at the Laem Ngop ferry terminals first. In Laem Ngop there are 3 piers.
The oldest, directly situated at the port of Laem Ngop, is not in operation at present.
Second, Laem-Ngop-Pier (Tha-Khrom-Luang or also Tha-Laem-Ngop), is situated approx. 700 metres west of Laem Ngop.
Third, Center-Point-Pier (Tha-Center-Point) is about 3.5 kilometres in the northwest.
These piers serve both car and passenger ferries.

The mini busses from Bangkok arrive at Center-Point-Pier, also many of the individually chartered taxis from Trat arrive here, whereas the local pickup-taxis (Songthaows) head for Laem-Ngop-Pier.

A further pier for car ferries is in the Thammachat Bay (Aow Thammachat), approximately 15 kilometres west of Laem Ngop. However this jetty is only required for those who come with their own or a rented vehicle.

Koh Chang has various piers, which are almost all situated on the eastern side of the island. The majority of traffic is handled at the two Dan-Kao-Piers. The boats from Laem Ngop take approximately 45 minutes to the Dan-Kao-Piers. The car ferry takes about 50 - 60 minutes and arrives at the Dan-Kao-Ferry-Pier (Tha-Ferry-Dan-Kao), which is situated 400 metres southeast of Dan-Kao-Pier (Tha-Dan-Kao). The car-ferry from Thammachat Bay stops at the Ko-Chang-Ferry-Pier (Tha-Ferry-Ko-Chang) in the Sapparot Bay (Aow Sapparot), 3 kilometres northwest from the Dan-Kao-Pier.



Meals, fruit, snacks and beverages are available at all the piers and on the car-ferries.

2) To the piers in Laem Ngop

From Bangkok
In Bangkok many travel agencies offer comprehensive tickets, including mini bus and ferry fees to Koh Chang. Departure times are in the morning at 8.00 am, arrival at the jetty between 1.30 pm and 2.30 pm, so that the island can be reached on the same day (prices between 170 - 250 Baht).
Mini bus rides may not be as safe as bus rides because of the reckless driving stiles of some drivers.

From the eastern bus terminal Ekamai in the Sukhumvit Road, A/C buses for 197 Baht (Tel. 02/391 25 04) and Non A/C buses for 140 Baht (Tel. 02/391 80 97) leave hourly between 5.00 am - 11.00 pm and at 11.30 pm. The province capital Trat, 315 kilometres away from Bangkok, is the starting point to Koh Chang and to Cambodia. The travel time may take between 4 and 6 hours depending on the departure time.

From Trat to Laem Ngop the journey can commence by either chartered pickup or by public pickups.
The chartered pickups take you to Center-Point-Pier (when desired also to Laem-Ngop-Pier, the price is negotiable, max. 100 Baht). The public pickups should be available for 20 Baht/Passenger and take you in 20 minutes to the remote port Laem Ngop 17 kilometres away. The songthaows wait at the first intersection directly behind the market, on the same side of the street. They leave when 10 - 15 passengers are collected.



We thank Barry Jaggers for sending a mail informing us that the airport in Trat is built already. Bangkok Airways flies several times a week twice a day from Bangkok to Trat and back.

The exact dates you will find on the internet-page from Bangkok Airways.

From Pattaya or Koh Samet
From Pattaya there are daily mini buses via Baan Pae (ferry port for Koh Samet) to Center-Point-Pier in Laem Ngop. They leave Pattaya at 8.00 am and cost 400 Baht (500 Baht with ferry-ticket) and about 300 Baht from Baan Pae (approximately 3 to 4 hours).

However one can take the A/C- and Non A/C buses to Chantaburi, step out at the bus station and travel from there further on to Trat.
