      All boats are vehicle ferries. Tickets can’t be bought in advance. When you arrive at the pier buy tickets and then you join the queue for the ferry. If a boat arrives and fills up before you can get on it then you have to wait for the next one.

    Hi,
    We planned to come Koh Chang on 29 Dec and leave on 31 Dec.
    We are planning to drive our car from Bangkok.
    Do you think that it is better to park the car at the Laem Sok Pier instead of taking it to the Island? If Yes, are there any parking lots at pier? Can we just buy ferry tickets at the pier?
    We are thinking to drive the motorbike to travel around the Island.

      You can park at Ao Thammachat pier on the mainland. There’s a tour agency opposite ticket office which has a secure parking area. You can buy boat tickets at the pier when you arrive.

      You don’t have to decide what to do until you get to the pier. If there are long queues, then you can leave the car there.

      On 31, there won’t be many people leaving the island so if you are driving you won’t have to wait long for a boat.

      (Don’t go to Laem Sok pier, it is only used for boats to Koh Kood)

            Yes. But you’d need to arrange it in advance either with your hotel or whoever is bringing you from Bangkok.

            There are locals with a wooden boat who would take you to Koh Chang. That’s about 2,500 Baht.

            Then you’d need someone to meet you at the pier and take you to your hotel. Probably another 800 – 1,000 Baht ( as there won’t be any shared pick up truck taxis at the pier)

            Ferries always run. But at extremely low tides not all boats can operate. However, that only happens a few times a year during low season. There aren’t any extremely low tides in February.

      The schedule stays the same year round. It might change but unlikely. It’s a minimum of 3 and a half hours from Utapao to the mainland pier. So there’s only a small chance of getting to the pier on time. Your plane would have to arrive early and the driver would have to go faster than normal to try to get to the pier.

You can only buy them at the pier. Foot passengers always go on the next boat which will depart.

            The plane lands at 5.15pm, not 7.15pm. So you’ll have no problem getting the 18:30 boat. Ferry tickets can’t be booked in advance. Buy them at the pier. Or just buy tickets for the shared minibus service to your hotel on Koh Chang when you land in Trat.

    I am arriving 18th December, flying into Trat from BKk but the arrival is 17:55 which will not allow time to catch the 18:30 ferry. Is there likely to be change in ferry times in peak season or maybe Bangkok Airways move their flight earlier?

    What would be the cost of private boat taxi if needed? is this is easy to arrange?

      No one knows at the moment. It was the same situation last November. After a week or two Bangkok Airways changed the time of PG307 to 17:15, which it is at the moment.

      A couple of locals have boats and take people to the island. I think they charge around 4,000 Baht for the boat. Then on Koh Chang it would be another 500 – 800 Baht for a private taxi to your hotel.

      The boats to Koh Chang leave from piers near Laem Ngop. Don’t go to Laem Sok, that is about 40km away and is the pier for boats to Koh Kood.

      Boats are timetabled for every hour. But are usually more frequent. There’s no way to know in advance exactly what time a boat might leave. But the last boat is at about 18:30.

      You can take your bicycle on either ferry free of charge. It is easiest to use Ferry Koh Chang from Ao Thammachat pier as they have more frequent departures and a faster crossing time. Just buy a boat ticket when you arrive at the pier and you’ll be on the next boat that will depart.

    Is the last option from Ao Thammachat going at 18:30 (so we manage :)) or 17:20 (we won’t manage :().
    And, do we stil buy tickets at the peer?
    We are 2 people with luggage, so hopefully you can squeeze us in for the 18:30 boat as long it goes ?

      It might be but no guarantee. It’s around 20 minutes drive from the airport to the mainland pier.

      Bangkok Airways will probably change the flight time back to arriving at 17:15, which has been the case for the past 4 months and is the same for all flights until the end of October.

      Until November last year PG307 always arrived at 17:55, but the last ferry was at 19:00. Then the ferry company changed the time of the last boat to 18:30 and Bangkok Airways followed by changing the time of PG307 to 17:15. So they probably haven’t got round to updating flight timetables for next high season.

        Ferries aren’t running to fixed timetables at the moment. They depart about every 30 minutes or more frequently if it is busy. So be at the ferry pier around 2 and a half or 3 hours before your flight and you will get to the airport in time for it.

    Hi!
    We are a family backpackers and have some questions about ferry between koh Chang and Trat. I will be planing to go to Koh chang in 2 weeks. I have contacted with a private taxi to drive us to Cambodia from Trat Pier. Taxi will pick up me there and they need to know what name pier in Trat. I am curious that how long time to drive from the pier to Thailand border, to Cambodia? I have 2 children and they is are under 3 years so that they are free? Is it only we pay for 2 adults for the tickets? How do we book ticket for ferry?

      Ferry tickets can’t be booked in advance. You can buy them when you arrive at the pier. Your kids will be free.

      The mainland pier is called Ao Thammachat.

      From the pier to the nearest border, at Hat Lek, is around 1 hour 45 minutes.

      If you are going to Siem Reap, then it’s around 3 and a half hours drive to Aranyapratet border crossing.

        Is a reservation needed to bring a car on the ferry, or is it okay to just show up and buy a ticket on the travel days. We’ll arrive to the Trat ferry terminal Tuesday January 24 and return on Thursday January 26.

          The maximum waiting time was around 1 and a half hours yesterday and on 1 January. But now all the Thai visitors who were here for New Year have left, so waiting time is back to petty much normal. Boats aren’t running to a fixed timetable. They are around every 30 minutes or more frequent if it’s busy.

      We’re 4 passengers on our way now to the ferry (from the mainland, AO Thammachart). We can’t really figure out what time the latest ferry to Koh Chang departs. However, our taxi says we’re at the harbor at 18.39. So If it is somehow possible to wait 10 minutes ?!

      Boat tickets cant be booked in advance. You have to queue and wait for a ferry. You should try to get to the pier as early as possible on the 30th. And on the 4th it will be better to leave Koh Chang early morning or late afternoon, then you will avoid long queues.

    Hi, we want to go to Trat Airport from Koh Kood via Koh Chang by bang boa wooden Boat. Is it possible to cross Koh Chang by shared Minibus to the Ferry Pier and then to Trat Airport?

      The Bangbao Boat wooden boat arrives at Bangbao around 16:00. So you probably won’t have time to get to Trat Airport for flight PG308.

      It will be too late for the shared minibus. So you would need a private transfer and then have to hope that the 16:45 ferry departs late. (As it will be about 50 minutes drive from Bangbao to Ao Sapporot pier) If it is on time the next boat is at 18:00 – and you would miss your flight.

      A better idea is to take the Boonsiri Ferry from Koh Kood to Laem Sok and then a pick up truck taxi to Trat Airport or the Boonsiri ferry shuttle service. Then you wont have any problem getting to the airport on time.

          Ferries still run if it rains. The rainy season is pretty much over. Just the occasional thunderstorm and heavy downpour.

          (Ferries occasionally stop operating due to extremely bad weather but I can only remember that happening once or twice in the past few years and for a few hours at a time.)

        There is one bus from Ao Thammachat pier on the mainland to Ekkamai bus station, Bangkok. This leaves at around 14:30. Tickets cant be booked in advance. Or if you are staying on Koh Chang you can buy a ticket for a shared minibus to Bangkok at your hotel or any tour agent.

          You can book tickets for Boonsiri Ferry online or can buy them at the pier. If you get to the pier an hour before the boat you want to take then you won’t have any problems getting a ticket.

          From Koh Kood to Koh Chang you can take a speedboat or wooden boat. Buy tickets at your hotel on Koh Kood when you arrive.

      However as there are still very few foreign tourists, there will probably only be the Bangbao Boat wooden boat service running in November. This will start running some time in late October / early November, depending on the weather and demand.

      There are boats between the islands, but only during high season – from late October to mid May. No services at the moment.

      Last year there was just one service a day by wooden boat in high season
      .

      But before covid there were also daily services by speedboat and Boonsiri Ferry.

      I don’t know if they will start again this year. It will depend on how many tourists there are.

      At the moment the last ferry is at 18:30. But when Bangkok Airways start flying PG307 again, the last ferry will revert to the normal time of 19:00. So that passengers on the flight won’t miss it. (The last boat was always 19:00 until covid.)

        The last ferry will be at 19:00 when PG307 begins operating again. That allows plenty of time to get to the pier.

        If the flight is delayed, the ferry waits for passengers coming from Trat Airport.

        In very rare cases where the flight is delayed for 2-3 hours due to severe weather or mechanical problems, a special boat is run for Bangkok Airways passengers.

      If you are travelling as a foot passenger then you can arrive 15 minutes before the boat leaves and you will be able to get on it. You can buy as many tickets as you need for your group.

      If you are driving any delays will depend on which day you are travelling and whether you are going from the mainland to Koh Chang or from Koh Chang to the mainland.

      It’s not possible to book ferry tickets in advance. Foot passengers always get on the next boat. But if you think you’ll arrive at the pier after 18:30, stay the night in Trat town.

      The last boat to Koh Mak is around 16:00 from Krom Luang pier, Laem Ngop. The last boat to Koh Kood is at 14:20 from Laem Sok pier.

      It’s Ok if you want to take the dog out of the car on the ferry. You can take him upstairs to the sitting area. Or you can stay in the car with the dog. That is OK too

    Hello,

    I have a question regarding the Covid-Situation. I am coming from Koh Phangan, which is a green zone. Do I need a PCR or Antigen Test to enter the Trat province?

    Thank you in advance.

      There aren’t any restrictions on people entering Trat province.

      The only restrictions are for people checking into hotels & coming from one of the ‘dark red’ provinces. They have to show a negative covid test or proof of vaccination.

      So you won’t have any problems if you come to Koh Chang from Koh Pha Ngan. But your hotel might ask for some proof that you have been living there. For example, you could show a 90 day report at Immigration or photo of rental contact etc

          There are often, but not always, checks at the mainland ferry piers.

          Passengers have to show proof of vaccination or a negative PCR covid test issued within the previous 72 hours or negative, doctor certified, ATK test issued within the previous 48 hours.

            There are separate tickets for passengers and vehicles.

            A car is 120 Baht one way. An adult passenger is 80 Baht one way. So the total would be 520 Baht for a car and five adults.

    Hello,

    I have a few queries,

    1) Can you pls update if there are any restrictions or any additional requirements due to covid 19 on travel by ferry to koh chang
    2) Any change in the schedule of ferry, is it still once every hour on all the days and what is the time of the first ferry and the last ferry.
    3) The pictures show cars parked almost next to each other, Is there a risk of cars banging into each other while the ferry is in motion. I am asking this because some people often leave their car in neutral gear without a parking brake.

      1) There aren’t any restrictions on who can travel by ferry to Koh Chang. The only restrictions are for guests from the ‘dark red’ provinces when they check in to their hotels. They will need to show a negative covid test or proof of vaccination.
      2) The current ferry timetable is shown on this page. (It sometimes varies, depending on the weather or how busy it is.)
      3) People put the handbrake on when they park on a boat. Over the past 15+ years I’ve only seen a couple of cases where a vehicle has moved and hit another whilst on the ferry.

      I just updated the timetable. It was changed a couple of days ago, there are hourly sailings now.

      In reality, if it is busy the ferries will just fill up and go. You won’t have to wait long for a boat, as motorbikes & scooters will go on the next departure. They don’t have to wait in a queue unlike cars.

      The motorbike price will be 80 Baht.

    We plan to bring our car to Koh Chang on Saturday 10th April and leave on Monday 12th April. We have 2 small children and would like to avoid any long queue. Could you please tell us the best times to arrive and leave on the ferry as we are not sure if Songkran this year will be a busy time?

      Songkran is the busiest time of year on Koh Chang. On 10 April you should plan to get to the pier as early as possible. Many people will leave Bangkok in the middle of the night to be at the ferry early morning. You don’t have to leave that early. But you should try to get to the pier before lunchtime to avoid the longest queues. going back the ferries will be busiest mid morning to mid afternoon. So plan to leave early, before 08:00 or late, after 16:00.

          There’s secure overnight parking, for people who don’t want to take their car on the ferry. It’s sensible not to leave anything valuable in it.

          But virtually everyone who drives to the pier will take their car on to Koh Chang.

      It will be OK. It’s only really a problem at extremely high or low tides. (A few times a year)

      Small cars, low riding sports cars and vehicles with skirts etc drive on and off at an angle so they don’t get scratched under the car.

      There’s no requirement to show your passport or any ID when you take the ferry.

      Your hotel will probably ask for your passport when you check in, so you will need a copy if you don’t have the original.

      There are a lot of different companies running bus & minibus services from Bangkok to Koh Chang. I don’t know their prices. All 4 wheel vehicles pay the same price for the ferry.

      Passengers are priced separately, so a car with two people costs the same as a minibus with 2 people, but a lot less than a minibus with 10 people.

      There aren’t any public taxis at Trat Airport. And ferry tickets cant be booked in advance.

      But Bangkok Airways run a minibus service for their passengers to hotels on Koh Chang. See this Trat Airport Guide for information.

    Could someone please tell me what is the best way to get from Koh Chang to Bangkok? And what time does the ferry depart Koh Chang. Trying to decide whether to catch a flight back from Trat or just take a bus back to the city and if so where would the bus drop you off. Many thanks.

      The ferry timetable for Centrepoint pier is on this site. Boats from the main ferry pier do not run to a fixed timetable. They’re around every 45 minutes from 06:40 onwards.

      There isn’t a best way to get to Bangkok. It depends on your budget and style of travelling.

      You could take a minibus from your hotel on Koh Chang to a hotel in Bangkok city centre if you want an inexpensive door to door service.

          It is abou 350km from Koh Chang to Bangkok. So it’s not possible to do it in 30 – 45 minutes.

          If you are travelling by road figure on 6 – 8 hours.

      Take the main ferry – Ferry Koh Chang from Ao Sapporot pier.

      There isn’t a fixed timetable, so if you’re at the pier around 9.15am, you’ll be able to get to the mainland in time.

      It is better to stay the night in Bangkok and next morning come to Koh Chang. You won’t be able to catch the last ferry.

      Or take a transfer to a hotel in Trat town or near the pier. And then next morning you can easily come to Koh Chang on your own.

      The ferry companies havent announced any change to services. But as there won’t be many Thais travelling in the afternoon – when the cremation is on TV – there might be fewer boats simply due to lack of demand. But you’ll still get here without any problems.

      Ideally go to Ao Thammachat – for Ferry Koh Chang as they have more frequent sailings and faster crossing time.

      When you get to Koh Chang take one of the shared pick up truck taxis that you will see waiting for passengers. They’ll drop you off at your hotel.

      you can rent a scooter at both ferry piers on Koh Chang. Buy tickets for a minibus from Koh Chang to Pattaya when you are on the island from any tour agent. Or you can take a minibus from Ao Thammachat ferry pier on the mainland. I dont know the timetable. Check before you take the ferry to Koh Chang

      It’s sometimes possible to find people in Laem Ngop who’ll bring you to the island at night. You’ll have to leave your car on the mainland. I think about 3,000 Baht for the boat. Then you’ll need someone to pick you up when you reach Koh Chang. As there won’t be any taxis at the piers.

      Much easier to stay in Trat & next morning come to the island.

      Just take the minibus from Trat Airport to your hotel on Koh Chang, you wont have any problems getting to Koh Chang the same evening. The last ferry is at 19:00. See: Tratairportguide.com/transport-to-koh-chang/ for details

    Hello,

    I want to go to Ko Chang on Thursday from bangkok. But I am not sure yet what time I can leave. Maybe at 13.15 from the Bus Terminal in Ekkamai with a public bus. Can I still get the last ferry then? I am not sure how long it takes to get to the port. Does the last ferry leave at 7pm?
    Thanks in advance,
    Julia

      Assuming there aren’t any delays, you should still be able to get to Centrepoint pier in time for the last boat at 19:30. The bus will go to Trat, form there take a pick up truck taxi to the pier.

    Hello,
    In a few days I’d like to take a bus from Ekkamai bus station in Bangkok (999 goverment bus) to Koh Chang. Do you know if I can buy tickets in advance?

      Hi Robert. I haven’t seen anywhere where you can buy them online. But you can buy tickets from the ticket office at the bus station itself in advance.

      It depends on where you are staying on Koh Chang and which ferry your driver will use. But if you leave around 16:00 then you should be at the airport for 22:00 – 22:30

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    I would like to know if we arrive around 18:00 at Trat airport, is there a possibility to get to Ko Chang? I don’t think we will be on time for the 19:00 boat, is there a private boat we can get to the island?

    Thank you!

    Hi! We land at Trat AirPort 18:00 and see that the last ferry is at 19:00 to Koh Chang, is it still possible to get there the same night? In that case, how?

    We land at Trat Airport at 6 pm 1.1.2017. This seems very tight to catch the last ferry and I am very concerned about it.

    Will we make it through baggage claim, customs and transfer to get the ferry on time?

    Hello,

    On thursday 18th of August we (5 persons) will arrive by Bangkok airways plane in Trat at 18.10. What is the best way to catch the last ferry to Koh Chang (i’ve read 19.30) and to which mainland ferry should we go in order to have some flexibility in delay (if any) ?
    Thanks.

      Take the minibus that is run by Bangkok Airways for their passengers. You will get dropped off at your hotel. Buy tickets when you land in Trat – or it is cheaper to book online.

      Take one of the morning minibuses to Suvarnabhumi Airport. They pick up from hotels on Koh Chang around 08:00 – 09:00. You’ll get there around 3-3.30pm. Then take the free shuttle bus from Suvarnabhumi to Don Meuang Airport.

      Or if that’s cutting it too close, take the Suvarnabhumi Burupha minibus at around 06:15 – 06:30 from Koh Chang to Suvarnabhumi.

      Buy tickets from pretty much any tour agent on the island.

      The only way you’d get here the same day is take a taxi or private transfer. There aren’t any buses or minibuses from Don Meuang Airport to Trat or Koh Chang.

    In your answer to Lena which you gave on April 27, 2015 at 1:13 am you discussed the mini buses from Bangkok International Suvarnabhumi airport which you stated actually will take you all the way to the hotels on Koh Chang. I have two questions. First, is one of the hotels the “Sea View Resort and Spa?” And second, do I need an advance reservation for the mini bus or will there be enough buses so that I can just go over to Entrance 8 of the First Floor of the airport and take a bus to my hotel whenever I show up- probably in the mid morning? Thank you for your information.

      The minibuses now drop people off at a makeshift bus station in the north of Koh Chang. From there passengers take a pick up truck taxi to their hotels. This might be a permanent arrangement or might be temporary – no-one knows at the moment.

      Minibus tickets can’t be booked in advance. If it’s busy extra buses will be provided. If it isnt then there will be just one minibus and if that’s full, you have to wait for the next one. Currently there’s a big bus at 07:50 and minibuses at 11:00 and 14:00.

      If you drive quickly you’ll be able to catch the last ferry at 19:30 from Centrepoint.

      I don’t think the ferry companies are going to run a special boat for you unless you pay a lot of money. You’ll have to contact them.

      The last minibus from Suvarnabhumi Airport to Koh Chang is at 14:00. So you wont get to Koh Chang the same day if you are landing at 14:30 unless you fly on Bangkok Airways flight PG307 to Trat.

      Hi Lena

      There are minibuses form the airport to hotels on koh Chang. That’s the easiest way to get here and you’ll be dropped off at your hotel. Go to Entrance 8 on the First Floor of the airport terminal. There you’ll see the Suvarnabhumi Burupha minibus counter. Ticket price is 600 Baht including ferry ticket. First minibus is at 0750, last is at 14:00.

          From Bangkok Airport you can take the Suvarnabhumi Burupha minibus to Koh Chang. See Suvarnabhumi Airport to Koh Chang Guide But ferry tickets cant be booked in advance, you buy them at the pier if you are using public transport.
