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!

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

The trip itself was ok, even tho at the bus station they didn’t know which bus we needed to get on so we went by every one of them until we got to the good one. Also we were a bit brutal dropped off at some sort of taxi service because the bus couldn’t take us to the ferry, and there we had to wait 30 minutes for more people so they could bring us to the ferry all together. There, they will ask you to pay but if you show your ticket you don’t need to so be aware of that. The ferry was fast and overall we were okay with the (long) journey.

The bus takes the passengers to a parking lot where they have to jump onto the bed of a pick up truck. From that point it is a half hour ride to the pier. It is very uncomfortable and difficult to keep your luggage from falling off the truck. The streets to the pier are in good condition so there is no need to make the risky change from bus to the pick up.

We liked the online service, but the ride was not as expected. Instead of a minivan, we got an already half-full small bus for 20 people and it arrived late. My husband and I bought an additional seat for the luggage, but we could still hardly find two seats for the two of us. It was extremely cold in the bus. We somehow managed to arrive in Bangkok only one hour late which was quite a surprise.

Trip from Chiang Mai to Bangkok was perfect: we left as sceduled, arrival was 7.00 instrad of 6.00 because of traffic in Bangkok. The next trip from Morchit to Koh Chang Pier went not so well: our reservation was not sceduoed as planned, so we left at 12.00 instead of 9.00. The man at the desk told us to wait.... but it was unclear where we were waiting for...So we were 4 hours waiting at the bus station?!! The bus was late: we left at 12.30. The trip went so very slow that the next bus was earlier at the stop. We changed busses, all passengers had to be in time for the last boat. We had another stop were we had to change to a taxi (we had to pay another 60 bht per person to get to the Pier). Lucky for us we were just in time for the last boat to Koh Chang. Our compliments for the driver of the second bus: it was because of him that we arrived in Koh Chang late in the evening.

Untrue, lies, misleading. Whatever it is called your information when i booked from Thammachat pier to Ekkamai says i would be picked up at pier in mini bus. False! I was put on a song taew and driven half hour to city. (Santung or some name like that) I was led to believe i would be picked up in mini bus at pier as stated in fine print. Yes I read fine print and conditions. Do not use excuse that you book with 457 carriers and hide behind that. Clarify all fine print. Fine print also contradicts itself; first says you will be picked up in mini bus then later wording says you will be picked up in minivan. I was charged 780 baht on email but when i got receipt from paypal says I was charged 827 baht. Small but significant. I booked for convenience but i had many travel options for buses to Bangkok when i returned to pier. Leaving from the PIER. Do not know where mini bus starts but was picked up 1 hour and 5 minutes after 10:30 pick up time. Mini bus was comfortable and quiet and new but not made for travelers with luggage. If all riders had just 1 carry on size bag who knows where they would all fit. I guess bus company does not think riders travel with luggage. Also no luggage rack on top. You represent the carriers, hold them accountable also. P. S. Your website is very easy to navigate and book with. Thank you.

We paid for the whole trip from mor chit terminal to Thammachat Pier but we have to get out of the bus somewere else. Than they want us to pay more money for a taxi to the pier. We refused and had a discussion with the taxi company. Therefore we almost missed the boat. I think 12go can inform the buscompanys better.

The express bus is much nicer than the vans, speaking as a westerner with long legs. The driver was also very nice. Highly recommend taking this option if you can. However, the bus itself doesn't go to Koh Chang Pier. It took about 4.5 hours to get to the Trat taxi stopoff point -- the same dropoff used by the vans. Then the truck taxi to pier, a bit of confusion exchanging tickets, but then onto the ferry and across.

Departure delayed 40 minutes, so we spent at Ekkamai 1,5 hour. We were NOT transferred to Thammachat Pier, but we were loaded out at unkonwon place about 20 Km sooner. There we were loaded to a tuck-tuck, /provider was infomrmed, that we want to Laem Ngop pier (speed boat to Koh Mak) and that we intend to hire a taxi in Thammachat Pier for about 17 Km to Laem Ngop pier/. By this mentioned tuck-tuck we were transferred for THB 500,- straight on to Laem Ngop pier. Really not a good impression. Jiri Novak, Czech Republic

Would be hard to beat in terms of cost and the timely fashion from pickup to arrival. All us foreigners were however, a little oblivious to direction and handoffs between transports. That said, we were never asked for anymore dollar and journied with the hope and prerequisite that every traveller thrives on. That apprehension and excitement of where the hell will this take me and do I care either way lol. Just book it and get on with it. Peace and love, Rupert.
