Bangkok to Koh Chang Destination Reviews

All in all very food and reliable
Bus Minibus + ferry, Suwarnphum Burapha (บริษัทสุวรรณภูมิบูรพา), Dec 26, 2023
(Solo-male traveler, Canadian) For the price this trip is a bargain in Thailand. The driver did not speak English but was very friendly and myself amongst other passengers could translate for him. The bus itself is in rough but working order. I was never truly uncomfortable (as you might be on local rural buses). Most importantly the air conditioning always worked, and we were never in physical danger. The first pit-stop seemed to happen pretty early into the trip and was a somewhat long 30-minute stop. The second stop was a 10 minute break at a gas station/convenience store about 1 hour from the reaching the ferry terminal. Both places had restrooms, some food options, and amenities. Considering the driver will in most cases drop you directly at your hotel, the price is very reasonable and the price margin between this and the next step up is a large gap, unless you have healthy budget and want to travel alone. Two recommendations: 1: Sit in the first seat directly behind the driver because you'll have maximum leg room and be the first person off-the-bus as pit stops. 2: Wear a mask. Many customers were coughing and a lot of germs spread around. I caught a cold on this bus and had to spend the first 2-3 days on Koh Chang sick in my room.

Very easy way to travel from Bangkok to Koh Chang! Lovely driver, there is not very much leg room in the bus (but I am 6ft so its probably okay otherwise) and they dropped us off right at our resort! Will use again and 100% recommend to anyone travelling this journey!

The Driver was excellent - thoughtful for his passengers, explained times clearly. He concentrated on the driving, with very little time spent on his phone while driving I rated "Great" overall because the van, while good, did struggle over holes in the road

The vehicle was on time and AC was always on too. We took several breaks which was good too. The driver helps you where will you go after you reach the island. I got off at the pier.
Bus Minibus + ferry, Suwarnphum Burapha (บริษัทสุวรรณภูมิบูรพา), Jul 9, 2023
On time, very straight forward and nice driver. The bus was tiny so a little uncomfortable but generally an extremely smooth trip! We stopped for lunch 1 hour into journey. Bus goes onto the ferry and driver drops you off on the other side up to a certain point. If you are staying anywhere 15 mins (approx) beyond the pier you will get a taxi for 50 THB which is waiting for you when driver drops you off. ☺️
