Private transfers to Ko Chang are a great way to travel. Especially in the high season. As buses can be full and the price of flights can increase up to over 3,000 Baht per person. . . and that doesn’t include transport from Trat Airport to your hotel on Koh Chang.
A private transfer to Koh Chang by car or minibus the most convenient and cost effective way of getting here. It’s not for everyone, as some people will prefer to take the bus and others will want to take the 50 minute flight to Trat from Bangkok Airways. But flying doesn’t save much time overall if you’re staying in central Bangkok. And whilst the bus will get you here safely, it is a bit of a hassle especially if you are travelling with kids.

We’ve been arranging private transfers for over 10 years and use a group of drivers based on Koh Chang. And we know that visitors are often a bit wary of taking a transfer in Thailand as stories of crazy drivers abound. And many have also had the experience of paying upfront for a transfer and then been met by a rusty, wreck of a van and a driver who thinks he’s an Formula 1 racer.
That’s why we don’t take any advance payment. You only pay when you arrive safely at your destination.
We can arrange private transfers from any hotels in Bangkok, Don Meuang Airport and Suvarnabhumi Airport. Plus other locations such as Cambodian border crossings; Pattaya and the piers at Laem Sok ( for Koh Kood ), Laem Ngop ( for Koh Mak ) and Ban Phe ( Koh Samet )

Minibus & Bus Tickets between Bangkok and Koh Chang
There are various private companies in addition to public minibuses running services from hotels and bus stations in Bangkok to Koh Chang. The services from bus stations are cheaper, but less convenient for most travellers.
Figure on 750 – 1,200 Baht for a ticket on a shared minibus that includes pick up from your hotel in Bangkok city centre. The shared public minibuses from Morchit or Ekkamai Bus Station are around 400 Baht / person when booked online
Please note that there may be reduced services in 2022-23 due to fewer tourists that there were prior to covid. Operators will only begin to run services again when it is profitable to do so.
Minibus Tickets between Suvarnabhumi Airport and Koh Chang
It is possible to book tickets online for the shared minibuses from Suvarnabhumi (BKK) to Koh Chang. Use the form below to check prices and book. Prior to covid there were services at 07:50, 11:00 and 14:00. However, at the time of writing (Aug 2022) only one service was running at 10:00 daily. ** Please note that I cannot book these tickets for you. **
This service is run by the Suvarnabhumi Burapha bus company but is also known as the ‘392’ bus or the Lonely Beach Express. It only runs between the airport and Koh Chang.
Minibus Tickets between Pattaya or Jomtien and Koh Chang
The shared minibus from Pattaya to Koh Chang will pick up from hotels in Naklua, Pattaya and Jomtien beach. (And if you’re coming from Koh Chang to Pattaya it will also drop off in those areas. ) Pick up from outlying beach locations as far south as Ambassador Hotel Najomtien is also possible on most services.
Again, please note that until tourists return to Thailand in significant numbers there will be reduced, or no services on certain minibus routes. Public bus or private transfer may be your only option.
