Koh Chang Information

Transportation

The beautifully captivating Koh Chang is actually very easy to reach which is on the contrary to what most people think. It is located in Trat province and you can choose the best way of transportation you wish to go with. The nearest airport is located in Trat, the airport offers shuttle service that could take you straight to the pier where you will take a boat from directly to Koh Chang. The pier is called Laem Ngop Pier. Trat also has a pretty big bus terminal with mostly Bangkok connections and it offers a bus or a minibus that will take you straight to the pier, you will have to take the early bus, however, to make it on time for the boat ride. If you are into island hopping, speedboats and catamarans are ready to transport you between the islands around Koh Chang including Koh Mak, Koh Wai, and Koh Kood.
