How to get to Bangkok from Koh Chang

What about

Leaving this jungle elephant island behind? Make sure you have seen enough of it – and its neighbouring islands, too. Koh Kood and Koh Mak are often overlooked being overshadowed by their more famous neighbour. But if you have a couple of extra days to spend, try to squeeze Koh kood and Koh Mak into your travel itinerary – and you will not regret, we guarantee. Koh Kood has much more to that real-island-paradise feel than Koh Chang, and Koh Mak is still wonderfully undeveloped and rustic which is a rare case with these tropical islands nowadays.

How to get from Koh Chang to Bangkok

To get to Bangkok from Koh Chang you need to take a ferry to the mainland first and then hop onto a van or a bus heading to the capital. There are combo deals which include pick-up at your hotel in Koh Chang, a ferry ride and a bus ride or just a ferry and a bus ride alone. You can as well take a ferry from the pier on Koh Chang (tickets cost THB80; departures every hour) all by yourself and then look for transport at the mainland pier or in Trat (to get there from any pier, take a songthaew for THB50-60). Normally, combo deals cost more or less the same as separate tickets but save you a good deal of time.

From Koh Chang to Bangkok by ferry + bus joint ticket

Travel Mart offers the most convenient service for travellers who plan to stay in Khao San Road area in Bangkok as their bus brings passengers to the company’s office located in Khao San Road, not far from the intersection with Thanon Chakrabongse, with Soi Rambuttri full of budget digs a stone’s throw away.

In Koh Chang, Travel Mart service uses ferries from Center Point Pier Koh Chang which lies a couple of kilometres further east from a more popular Ao Sapparot pier. Tickets cost THB600, which is a bit more expensive than if to tailor-make your trip all by yourself, but they bring you to Khao San from Koh Chang in just about 7½ hours which is really quick.

From Koh Chang to Bangkok by private taxi

Private taxi is the most luxurious way to travel from Koh Chang to Bangkok and makes sense if you are travelling as a large group of friends or a family. PGS company offers Toyota Camry for 3 pax and Toyota Commuter for 9 pax. The price difference between the two options is insignificant (THB5500 vs THB6000), so it not a bad idea to opt for a larger vehicle. All taxes and tolls are already included into the price, and pick-up and drop-off points are determined by you.

From Koh Chang to Bangkok by separate ferry + bus tickets

There are regular ferries from Ao Sapparot pier on Koh Chang to Center Point Pier and Ao Thammachat Pier. Ferries depart from Koh Chang every hour or even more frequently on busy periods.

From Ao Thammachart there is a regular van service to Morchit Terminal in Bangkok by T.T.T transport company. They have vans at half past every hour from 7.30am till 6.30pm. Vans normally take five hours to get to Bangkok, tickets cost THB330.

Note that vans leaving after 2.30 pm arrive to Bangkok well after dark. It takes about one hour to get from Morchit to the central part of the city or to the most touristy areas of Khao San Road, so plan accordingly.

From Koh Chang to Suvarnabhumi Airport

There is a very convenient service from Koh Chang directly to Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok operated by Buraphatransport company. It is definitely the best, fastest and most convenient way to get to the airport from the island to catch your flight home or to the next destination elsewhere.

Total travel time from Koh Chang to Suvarnabhumi Airport, including a ferry ride, is 6½ hours. Be sure to allow enough time before your flight as in case of any delays en route the bus company will hold no responsibility for cancellation or change of your air tickets.

Burapha has three vans a day from Koh Chang to Bangkok: at 7am, noon and 5pm, arriving to Suvarnabhumi at 1.30pm, 6.30pm and 11.30pm respectively. At 12pm there is usually a big bus serving the same route, too. Regardless of the vehicle type (a van or a bus), tickets cost THB650. On Koh Chang, Burapha buses wait for passengers at the Khlong Son bus station along Rural Road to the southwest of the pier. After picking up passengers, vans head to the ferry and to Laem Ngop from where it is a five-hour ride to the airport.

First time in Bangkok?

Where to stay

It is easy to get lost in the sprawling neighbourhoods of Bangkok and become totally confused by the endless accommodation options on offer. First thing to do is to define the budget you are going to spend on accommodation and take into consideration the activities you are planning to be engaged in while in Bangkok.

A perennial backpackers’ favourite, Khao San Road and a couple of adjacent streets, including Soi Rambuttri, Soi Phra Atit and Soi Samsen, is the realm of budget accommodation in the capital with all the traveller-oriented services readily available. Chinatown, known as Yaowarat, possesses infinite charm for any city explorer and boasts very decent budget guesthouses. Silom and lower parts of Sukhumvit Road both have solid mad-range hotels normally located within a walking distance from BTS stations. For a shopaholic paradise head to the centrally located Siam but be prepared to pay no less than THB2000 for a simple room. The atmospheric Riverside is famous for its luxury hotels but for budget digs Thanon Charoen Krung is worth browsing.

Activities

Time spent in Bangkok is never enough as the city offers virtually endless opportunities for exploring, sightseeing, dining and wining. While everyone will surely find an activity and a destination within Bangkok to their tasting, no visit to the Thai capital is complete without:

  1. Checking-in at the Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew where the most revered image of Buddha in the whole country is hosted.
  2. A heavenly massage session at Wat Pho, the national headquarters of preservation of Thai medicine.
  3. A drink in one of the glamorous rooftop bars with an outstanding city view in a company of beautiful crowd.
  4. A river boat ride along Chao Phraya elbow to elbow with other commuters and unexpected water splashes into your face.
  5. Browsing the narrow twisted aisles of the crazy Chatuchak weekend market selling a wealth of souvenirs, cheap closes, local designer creations and exotic animals.
  6. A relaxed afternoon at Jim Thompson House, a leafy little oasis of peace and tranquillity by the side of a khlong.
  7. A strenuous ascend to the main prang of Wat Arun or to the top of the Golden Mountain.
  8. A ride on a skytrain for a bird’s eye view of the city.

Have a pleasant stay in Bangkok. Relax and enjoy – we know, you will!

Koh Chang to Bangkok. I was used to a different bus ticket system as I would recieve a ticket for each stop stated, but for this one the bus agent just gives you a sticker and boat ticket so I was confused and took me awhile to realise each sticker has a different destination name on it and thats their system. Had I known, it would’ve saved me some paranoia. Otherwise the boat and bus ride was good.

The ferry itself is easy and basic transportation . The service from the ferry to the hotel and from the hotel to the ferry is not good at all. They drop you off at the wrong hotel because they don’t speak English enough to get the hotel right even if you show them the name of the hotel.They took me to the wrong horse that has a Similar name and it was way far away. On the way home they were supposed to pick me up and they didn’t pick me up I had to end up taking another service and they were very unapologetic.

Not the best was told to be there 45 mins before departure, so was there in plenty of time only to find out the ferry leaves at 9.30am and not 10. the other very annoying thing was getting the earlier boat thinking we would leave early and get into Bangkok quicker was a big mistake. we had to wait for the next ferry to come back again to fill up the coach, so had just as well of got the later one. coach journey its self was fine except within the first hour we stopped for rest break with 5 hours to go.

Kupując e-ticket Koh Chang - Airport Subarnabumi (Lat Krabang) na 12goAsia dostałem informację o wypłynięciu z Centre Point Pier o 10.00. Przybyłem po 9 rano i na miejscu okazało się, że prom wypływa o 9.30. Potem dopiero okazało się, że już na lądzie autobus czeka i zbiera ludzi z następnego promu o 10.45. Czyli lepiej przybyć na miejsce około 9.00. Później wszystko OK, wygodny i duży autokar. Dla chętnych na lotnisko wyrzuca koło Airport link Lat Krabang, a dalej jedzie na Khao San Road. Zamiast o 16 dotarł na miejsce przed 17. po drodze stopover na jedzenie, ale okazało się, że bardziej na kupowanie pamiątek, bo jedzenia nie było.

Make sure that you go to Central point pier in Koh Chang, used more by the locals. Ferry tickets included. We arrived at 10 am, but the bus picked up passengers at 11:30. The ferry is very old and rusty. The bus is in very good condition with air conditioning. A break of 20 min for snacks, souvenirs and going to the toilet somewhere after 2 hours of driving. Arrived on time in Bangkok on a busy Friday afternoon

Bus itself was new with good air conditioning. Seats are very uncomfortable though so bring a cushion if possible. Quite confusing at the pier as you don't get your tickets from the main office, rather the bus agents sit just to the side so can take a while to find where you are supposed to go - plenty of tourists around taking the same bus though so just ask around and you will find it. The boat leaves at 10.45 but recommend giving yourself plenty of time to get to the pier as not every taxi can take you so you might be waiting a bit before you are able to get a trip. Once you get across on the boat you are picked up by a shuttle to the main bus. Provided with water and a snack and the bus stops for 15 min half way if you want to get something to eat. Bus arrived only 15 min after schedule.

The ferry and bus trip, in general, was great. Make sure you arrive at the Center Point Pier (on Koh Chang) by 10 as the ferry leaves the pier at 10.45. There'll be a staff from Boonsiri in charge of ticketing. Just check with the staff on the pier (they can speak English, enough to guide you). Don't worry about the shuttle "taxis" (or songthaew, or old vans) which take you from the pier to the main road where the buses are parking, it'll take you less than 4 minutes. The bus itself is very new and spacious, with a toilet. Our bus arrived at Khao San station at 5.30. You may want to pack some snack with you as our bus didn't stay for a long time at the gas stop for meal. I didn't have to pay for any extra fees either. One last thing: there's just a few taxis(songthaew) are allowed to get to the pier on Koh Chang, not every taxi you see on the road. The "to the pier" taxi will probably start from Bang Bao Pier and collect passengers on the street and the next one will start one hour later. So expect to wait for a a couple of minutes on the street if you dont wanna miss it. Otherwise, get a vehicle arranged gỏ you in advance. Hope you guys have a good trip ahead.

We had a perfect trip with Glassflower from Bangkok to Kohchang. Unfortunately the way back from Kohchang to Bangkok is not same as expected. I guess Glassflower couldn’t arrange their own car and driver for the trip. The car was dirty and not as comfortable as the other car which we took us from BKk to Kohchang. The driver couldn’t speak Englisg but drove us carefully. We were picked up on time and arrived as scheduled in Bkk.

The driver showed up at the hotel on time, even a little early. The drive was fine and comfortable. It took about 5.5 hours from Koh Chang to the hotel in Bangkok. The only issue was the driver not speaking English, when we asked to stop somewhere he did not quite understand our request. Otherwise all was good.

Got a pickup at 9.30am for 10am at centrepoint pier- *ferry leaves 10.45am* so if you can make your own way there just be there before 10.40 and you will be fine, as everybody is walk-on (the bus is on the other side when you depart the ferry). When you arrive on the other side you show your eticket to person at the booth and you get on the bus. The bus is okay, fairly dilapidated but does the job. My seatbelt was broken. We arrived 1.5hrs late in Bangkok. The bus stops at one food place, (probably run by the bus company, as they always use this place). Foreigners pay 60baht for dishes, Thai pay considerably less! Arriving in lat prabang was quite good as the rail link is next to the stop and is efficient. Overall the govt 999 service is cheaper and faster, but is often sold out peak season, so if you don’t have options this is not a bad choice.

We had to wait at centre point for 3 hours and the bus was not a mini bus but a big bus. My daughter was sick in the bus but the driver didn’t care at all and wouldn’t stop. The bus was about 2 hours late arriving into Bangkok.

It can be a bit confusing with regards to the timing. It's stated 10am at CentrePoint Ferry which is on the mainland but the bus left only at 11.30am. Will be great if website can state clearly the transfer timings for ferry at Ko Chang and bus timing at CentrePoint Pier. Overall, ride is smooth and reached Lat Krabang at stated time.
OK
ferry ferry, Boonsiri High Speed Ferries, Dec 21, 2019
On the ticket departure is 10.00 from central pier point. Central pier point exists on Koh Chang and on the main land. There was no information that can tell you how the two part (ferry and bus) work together. I assumed that we get on the bus and with the bus on the ferry, as is for the van trips. After I have seen the ferry (wonder that it does not fell apart), no high speed, it was clear that bus boarding bust be on the other side. There you have to take the shuttle bus, which brings you to the central pier point. There you get new stickers and the information that you have to wait. Finally you get on the bus, old but ok. It was not the best trip, but a lot better than the van torture on the trip to Koh Chang. Summarized: confusing organized, trip ok, and a lot you can tell.

The bus was old but ok, better than minivan. However the whole process was really confusing. On the ticket it said that departure is at 10 from the pier and we should be there 45 min im advance. We arrived at 9 to find out that there is a ferry at 9.30 or 10.45 and no bus. We asked at the counter, the lady told us to take the 9.30 ferry and that the bus will be on the other side. It was there, but it waited for the next ferry (or 2) to arrive so we started the drive at 12, after 1.5h of waiting.. We finally arrived about 30 min late. It seems that correct departure time is 10.45 or even 11.15. The driver stopped for a break in some weird restaurant so it might be better to take food with you.

I had to buy a new one and lost 18 euros. I know I was over the time but I used 12go quite a few times lately and to honor my loyalty you could have made a exception.
