From Bangkok (Downtown)
There are many different ways of getting from the huge megalopolis of Bangkok to the island of Koh Chang, not all equal in travel time, convenience, safety or comfort.
Different companies operate buses and mini-vans to Leam Ngop ferry pier as well as Trat Town from Ekamai (Bangkok’s Eastern Bus Terminal) or Mor Chit (Bangkok’s Northern Bus Terminal). These might not be the most convenient modes of transportation if you are traveling with extensive luggage.
The internet will be your best friend in researching your independent trip concerning up-to-date departure times and more.
If you would like a more organized form of transportation please ask your hotel or local travel agent in Bangkok for more information.
