Triple T

Company Information

This van service specialise in the popular Bangkok – Trat route and are viewed by locals and visitors alike as one of the cheapest and easiest ways to get from Thailand’s capital to the tourist hotspot of Koh Chang. Based in Bangkok, this reliable operator also offers ferry tickets to Koh Chang from Trat.

Routes served by Triple T (TTT)

As mentioned above, Triple T focuses on servicing the busy Bangkok–Trat route. Although there is little in Trat itself, it is a useful gateway to reach the beautiful islands of Koh Chang, Koh Kood and Koh Mak with ease.

Bangkok–Trat

Helpfully, there are two departure points from Bangkok; Mo Chit, in the north of the city, and Ekkamai, the eastern bus terminal. A one-way ticket from either station in Bangkok to Trat costs approximately THB320, with departures throughout the day. As Bangkok is a huge city, having this choice is very useful as it could save you a trek across the city.

Services from Mo Chit depart hourly between 05.00-08.00 and 09.30-15.30, with the final service at 18.30. Vans from Ekkamai run hourly throughout the day from 06.00-19.00, with both trips taking around 5 hours in total.

The return trip from Trat to either Bangkok station costs the same amount (THB320) with vans every hour to both stations (08.00-18.00 to Mo Chit and 05.00-19.00 to Ekkamai).

Bangkok–Koh Chang

From Trat it is possible to travel by ferry to Koh Chang. You can make this journey yourself by catching a songthaew to the port and purchasing a ferry ticket there. However, it is much easier and also cheaper to take advantage of the excellent value Bangkok–Koh Chang package offered by Triple T.

This ticket costs just THB350 from Mo Chit and includes a van to Trat as well as the ferry across to Koh Chang. Vans depart Bangkok hourly from 05.00-08.00 and 09.30-12.30, with the full trip lasting around 6 ½ hours. Tickets from Ekkamai station in Bangkok are priced at THB440 for the same trip, with vans leaving every hour between 06.00-12.00.

Note A word of warning if you are planning on heading to Koh Chang without purchasing the Bangkok–Koh Chang package ticket, bear in mind that the last ferry is at 19.00 so leaving Bangkok any later than 12.00 risks missing this service and having to find some overnight accommodation.

It is also possible to buy a ticket direct to the pier where the Koh Chang ferry departs from. However, from Mo Chit this is the same price as the combination ticket so not really a worthwhile option. Priced at THB350, vans depart both Bangkok stations between 05.00-08.00 and 09.30-11.30 (Mo Chit) and 06.00-12.00 (Ekkamai).

Pros

As mentioned, the package ticket from Bangkok–Koh Chang offers excellent value for money and is a great option for travellers. This is one of the main reasons that Triple T is such a popular choice on this route.

The flexibility offered by departures from both Mo Chit and Ekkamai is another advantage of using Triple T. Travelling across Bangkok can be difficult and time-consuming, if you're located in the east of the city then it will be far easier to catch a van from Ekkamai, saving you both time and money.

Mo Chit is one of Thailand’s more confusing bus stations, so the information provided on the website is very helpful when trying to locate the ticket office or ask someone for help.

Finally, as there are so many services heading to and from Trat each day, it might be possible to be put on an earlier or later departure depending on availability if you miss your scheduled departure time. This is particularly useful in Bangkok where delays in traffic or on public transport are frequent.

Cons

It's worth noting that it isn't possible to choose actual seats in the vans, just to reserve a place, so it is worth getting there early to ensure that you get a good seat and are not stuck next to the luggage.

Also, as some of the vans tend to be a few years old, the air conditioning is not always of the best quality. Again, arrive early to grab a seat close to the a/c to ensure your trip is as comfortable as possible.

If you purchase a Bangkok–Koh Chang ticket you will most likely have to change at Trat and catch a songthaew (which will be arranged and paid for by Triple T). For those unused to travelling in Thailand this process may seem chaotic, but don't worry, there is a system and you will arrive in time for your ferry!

Keep in mind

Although, it is possible to buy a ticket from Bangkok to Trat and then make your own way to the islands, if you're heading to Koh Chang it is highly recommended that you buy the package ticket which will take you all the way there. There is little to do in Trat itself but if you decide to spend the day there remember that the last ferry departs at 19.00, and it’s around 30 minutes to the pier! This combination ticket costs the same as a ticket to the pier, where you would then have to pay for a ferry, so it does offer good value for money.

Travellers reviews

The majority of reviews focus on the very competitively priced tickets, especially the Bangkok – Koh Chang ticket, made even more attractive with the fairly quick journey times.

Many reviews highlight the fact that, unlike some other transport providers, Triple T often let you on a later service if you are delayed and there is space on the next van departing. With hourly departures throughout the day, there is never too long to wait for the next one!

The biggest complaint is the age of the vehicles, with the result that the air conditioning can sometimes be unreliable. Unfortunately, this is true of almost all transport companies across Thailand and there is little that can be done about this, except arriving early to ensure you sit as close to the a/c or a window as possible, or bringing your own small fan!

December 2017

Annalisa, Dec 18, 2017 - We arrived in perfect time and the Van was quite confortable. The taxi from the main road to the pier was included in the ticket price ( se took the van from Bangkok to koh Chang), the boat is included either. The driver sometimes has driven a little bit fast..
Alex, Dec 15, 2017 - Great driver! Perfect transfer! A+
Andreas, Dec 13, 2017 - I arrived early at the pier and asked for an earlier bus to Bangkok. The advice from the staff turned out to be disadvantageous, as they suggested a bus to the Northern instead of the Eastern terminal. It was hard to reach the inner city from the Northern terminal and I ended up paying 200 Bath for a taxi, with all my time saved earlier gone due to the traffic.
Andreas, Dec 13, 2017 - On time, without noticeable delays along the way, competent driver who knew how to handle our luggage.
Michael, Dec 8, 2017 - The ride didn’t seem that long. Not very comfortable but exactly what I was expecting. Everyone was very accommodating and helpful.
Barbora, Dec 3, 2017 - After reading some comments I was little afraid what to expect of this journey, but everything went good :) It was a really smooth trip from the beggining to the end...we even arrived to Koh Chang nearly 1 hour before the scheduled arrival time :)

November 2017

Laura, Nov 29, 2017 - My only complaint is that the information on the website stated that the final taxi ride to the hotel was included in the price (unless there was less than 8 people in the taxi then we would have to pay 800B between us or wait for the next ferry) but on arrival at Koh Chang pier we were charged 100B per person despite the taxi being full and the hotel only being a relatively short distance from the ferry terminal. The PDF ticket didn't mention the final taxi ride but It was stated on the website. Other than that the journey was fine.
Andrzej, Nov 27, 2017 - The minibus didn't pick us up from the pier directly. We had to take a pickup taxi which took us to another station and we departed at around 11.30 arriving around 17.00. We booked extra 1 seat for luggage, what seems wasting of money! Very limited space, either for luggage and for feet (although we booked an additional seat for our back packs). During the trip, the driver also picked up other passengers though the bus was already very full and dropped them off somewhere. What was good is that the driver kept his speed at 100km/h.
Giuseppe, Nov 27, 2017 - Everything worked almost as a swiss chronograph (...to be in Thai...): first van from BKK left only 10 min late and the seats were not so comfortable (full van), but everything was fine, then second van in conjunction.....and third van to the pier....almost perfect. And reasonable price too !!
Johannes, Nov 26, 2017 - De kaartjes voor de nachttrein lagen klaar bij het hotel naast het treinstation dus dit was makkelijk. Ook de reis met de trein verliep prima. De reis met de bus van Bangkok naar Koh Chang is een ander verhaal. We moesten bij betalen voor de bagage wat op zich nog okė is maar als ze dan alle tassen op ėén dezelfde stoel gooien voelt dat niet goed. Tijdens de reis van 5 uur werd er niet ėėn keer gestopt voor toiletbezoek of eten. En opeens werden we gedropt bij een ticket balie waar we kaartjes moesten kopen voor de boot en gingen we verder in een taxi die ons naar de pier bracht. Geen uitleg en nog een tijd moeten wachten tot die taxi ging rijden. Al met al voor ons geen succes.
Cornelia, Nov 19, 2017 - Bustocht erg lang en het busje was erg vies en volgepropt. Daarna met open auto verder dat was erg goed geregeld
Nurmukhammed, Nov 14, 2017 - It was a great trip from BKK to Trat. Supposed to depart at 16:00, but I've arrived to Ekkamai station earlier than I've expected, so I've asked at the counter to kindly change it to 14:00 if possible and the cashier changed. Driver was quite friendly, but Ekkamai bus station staff are not really friendly. Journey took a bit longer than supposed to, but in general I would recommend this company =)
Batze,, Nov 11, 2017 - Mon Chit ist nicht die beste Wahl für den Tripp nach Koh Chang. Der Terminal 3 und die TTT Busagentur ist schlecht zu finden. Der Bus war schlecht, eng, die Sitze durchgesessen, wir hatten den Eindruck auf den Sprungfedern zu sitzen. Burkhard, Berlin
Michael, Nov 2, 2017 - Being 2,0m in height I knew Thai minivans aren’t equipped for that. Apart from the cramming space and rough seat we had a great trip. Delays on the way due to traffic jams and accidents didn’t make us miss the boat. Even losing the ferry tickets we got in Bangkok wasn’t to much of a deal since we got a new pair after a few angry phone calls were made by the lady in the counter. All in all a long but good trip and good start to an enjoying stay at Koh Chang

October 2017

Pual, Oct 28, 2017 - YOU PAY FOR WHAT YOU GET
Jon, Oct 23, 2017 - Perfect
Veera, Oct 12, 2017 - In morchit terminal, booth 16, there was a really nice lady checking us in. She helped politely lost farangs in terminal! Van driver was also great taking care of us. Everything went smoothly. No waiting, on time in the destination (in fact even early) and the van was clean and well air-conditioned. Would recommend!
Fang-yi, Oct 7, 2017 - The trip was smooth.
Agnieszka, Oct 1, 2017 - Wszystko sprawnie i zgodnie z ustaleniami. Firma warta polecenia

September 2017

Grzegorz, Sep 30, 2017 - I was little bit afraid of this trip, based on other comments. I wasn't sure what to expect. But it took smoothly. Minivan departured few minutes before time. Travel was quite comfortable. Only one annoying thing was speed limit indocator. It started to beep after driver has exceeded 100km/h. So in the first half of the trip this sound has been enabled every minute. Transfer to Koh Chang was also very smooth. We arrived to the island 30 minutes before time that was in the information.
Kate, Sep 16, 2017 - Didn't get dropped at the Pier, had to get a separate taxi to the boat, boat and taxi was 80 baht, spoke little English so when I was very confused dropped on the side of the road he was not much help/couldn't tell me any info haha
Louise, Sep 11, 2017 - Overall trip ran very smoothly, however we were squashed in at the back of the bus with hardly any room to move. Also once dropped off at taxi location for transport to pier we had to wait for a minimum of 6 passengers in order for transport to run. After about waiting an hour they asked if we wanted to pay an extra 100bt each to go straight away! It would of been nice to know this before sitting in the heat for an hour! Apart from this journey was reasonable for the price.

August 2017

Andgie, Aug 24, 2017 - Everything was set up, taxis were waiting to bring us to the Trat pier. There were 2 stops during the journey from Bangkok to Trat. One main comment is the difficulty to find the right stall at Mochit. We were told to go to platform 6 however it doesn't exist. The information in the email should be updated to reflect accurate details.
Lydia, Aug 21, 2017 - The Air Condition had a leak and the Water was dropping all the time..
Mara, Aug 17, 2017 - A little more direction would be nice! Also the driver did nothing about some car signal beeping for 4 hours...
Sreenivasa, Aug 14, 2017 - I booked extra 1 seat for luggage... journey was ok no complains and cost effective... they leave on time most of the times..... add extra 1 hour to the journey time if you planning for next activity
Claudius, Aug 11, 2017 - The minibus didn't pick us up from the pier directly. We had to take a pickup taxi which took us to another station and we departed at around 13.30 arriving around 18.00. During the trip, the driver also picked up his friend/colleague even though the bus was already very full and dropped him off somewhere at a car fixing garage (since the colleague's bus was broken) - not really professional. What was good is that the driver kept his speed at 100km/h (the car had an alarm if the driver went faster than 100km/h). This actually could have been increased to 120km/h.
Martin, Aug 8, 2017 - Good reliable service. Unfortunately I got the back seat which was a bit cramped. Driver stopped twice at services enroute. Took just over 4 hours
Wim, Aug 6, 2017 - Different Seats in the van then shown on the pictures .not as luxurious .so very packed bit hard trip.
Sebastien, Aug 3, 2017 - Whole trip was ok. A few remarks though: - a T.T.T sticker on the counter at the Ekkamai station would be welcomed to avoid asking everyone which counter we should get our tickets from. - There is no trunk in the van. So if the van gets full, the luggage will need to get under the seats if small enough, or on your knees. - Driver of the van refused to make an early stop for the toilets even though there were some on the road... - Changing tickets twice for the ferry was a bit confusing. Could 12go detail the steps of the travel so we know in advance how it will be proceeded. We did not know there would be a stop to finish the trip to the ferry with another taxi, which took our 3 tickets for the ferry + the van tickets to give us another ferry ticket with the mention "3". The taxi then took us to the ferry where we had to give this one ticket to get another 3 tickets for the actual ferry. Once on Koh Chang, taxis will wait for you at the arrival of the ferry. They will wait to have 10 people in their truck before going. So if you get one of the last ones and is not complete, they will wait for the next ferry (could be around one hour) to get you to your hotel, unless you agree with other people onboard to sum up 800 bahts to pay the driver to go immediately. Fortunately we were already 8 people and easily agreed to pay 100 bahts each....
Daniel, Aug 2, 2017 - The driver spoke on his held hand device all the time, drove too fast almost all the time and had us switch to an awful tuktuk w 20 other pple (and luggage) half an hour from the pier. I had to pay 400 bht to get us out of this mess and get us a taxi to get us there safely. Bad experience, will not do it again. On the pos side: we got there on time and we survived.

July 2017

Martin, Jul 31, 2017 - Good service. Need to show online booking at one of the Ekkamai ticket windows to get 2 paper tickets, one for bus, one for ferry. Then we went to stop 17 to catch bus, no problems. Changed vehicles at roadside for the last 10km to ferry terminal - open sided pickup truck, was fun. Ferry journey was great and then paid B50 for shared pickup truck taxi to white sand beach hotels.
Jules, Jul 22, 2017 - The driver was driving like a mad men and constantly on his mobile phone, the bus was old and the ac was not working properly plus bad seats,
Clara, Jul 6, 2017 - After reading all the negative reviews about the trip we were a bit worried, but it went out totally fine. We were an hour early at Ekkamai (german accuracy ;)) so we were able to get on the previous minibus. We didn't have any problems with our luggage and stopped for toilet and food twice.
Johannes, Jul 4, 2017 - No English signs at Ekkamai bus station, wrong departure time (10 instead of 11 so we had to hurry), no a/c in the bus or broken and very tight, no english speaking driver, 1 min from bus to change to taxi

June 2017

Martin, Jun 11, 2017 - Great, a small misunderstanding in the order was resolved immediately.

May 2017

Katrin, May 14, 2017 - It was a chicken shit express (we had the back row and the driver was loading chickens in 2 carton boxes). It smelled very bad!! And btw: poor chicken! The departure time was also pretty random!
Lia, May 13, 2017 - It was so terrible, I can't even find the words. Not recommended at all. There were living chickens in our van... It is cheap tho, haha.

April 2017

Janja, Apr 28, 2017 - Everything was perfect. The first bus was on time, then they dropped us along the road where the second transport already waited. We also got the ferry ticket there. When we got to the ferry we just showed our ticket and that was it. We needed 7 hours from bangkok to koh chang (including the ferry).
Vladimir, Apr 21, 2017 - Mor Chit is not best bus station in Bangkok, but largest. There no navigation in English. I booked trip with departure at 10:30 and arrived to Mor Chit at 9:30. At platform I got ticket with printed time 12:00. But real time of departure was written by pen - 11:00. (we started just in time, at 11:00). Van - old and very hard used Toyota Commuter (but this is ok, really). Worst of all - change from van to songthaew (this transfer is not direct to Koh Chang pier). Suddenly you must leave van with luggage in 5-7 seconds. After that you must show ticket again (you have 10-15 seconds to out it from backpack) or pay cash. As result I pay twice. Songthaew was crowded (12 people with luggage) and in very bad condition.
