Bangkokair offers three daily flights from Suvarnabhumi to Trat airport. Minibuses bring guests from there to Laem Sok pier in about half an hour drive.
The cheapest way to Trat and Koh Chang is by bus from Ekamai busterminal in Bangkok. There are several buses per day, leaving early morning and needing 5-6 hours drive. The buses usually head for Trat bus terminal, but during high season there are buses directly to Laem Ngop pier. Pickup taxis connect Trat bus terminal with Laem Ngop pier and Laem Sok pier.
Speedboats are available from Ko Kood and Ko Chang. Starting at Kai Bae beach and Bangbao Bay on Ko Chang, the speedboats need appr. one hour to reach Makatanee pier on Ko Mak. From Ko Kood its only just 25 minutes to Ao Nid pier.
It´s still nice to take an expressboat from Ko Chang to Ko Mak (Suan Yai pier) which needs 2 hours, enjoying the world of islands much more relaxed.Bus- and train tickets online Anzeige
