How to Get from Koh Chang to the Airport and Other Destinations
Koh Chang is the second biggest island in Thailand, which is located 400 km south-east of Bangkok. You can get from it to Pattaya, Siem Reap, Don Mueang International Airport, and Suvarnabhumi Airport of Bangkok by taxi, public transport or by private transfer.
Taxi from Koh Chang
It is the tourists, travelling with a big amount of luggage or with little children, who usually choose a taxi.
One can book a car from Koh Chang in two ways: by a phone call or using an online application. But we advise you to choose the first way since usually mobile applications of big taxi companies do not work on the island or if they work, they do it intermittently. And very often freelance drivers overstate the cost of a trip.
If you are going to book a car by phone, we advise you to buy a local SIM-card first, for you to avoid extra expenses in roaming.
The fare for a car trip will depend on many factors. For example, taxi companies tariffs are increasing automatically at night, as well as on holidays.
Moreover, you should take into account, that it is possible to get to Koh Chang island and to leave it only by a ferry, that significantly increases the price for a taxi. That is why the trip in a taxi company car is usually even more expensive than a plane ticket.
Transfer from Koh Chang
Are you thinking how to get to Koh Chang or from it, without worrying about a ferry and dishonest drivers? In this case, you should use the transfer service.
A Kiwitaxi car will pick you up from any point on the island and will drive you straight to the airport or the capital of Thailand. At the same time, you will not have to worry about the possible fare increase, since all the tariffs, which are displayed on our site, are fixed at the moment of booking a car. Moreover, the price for a ferry is already included. You can order any type of vehicle you want from an Economy class to a Minivan or even a Minibus.
It is better to book a transfer in advance. For that, you should fill in the booking form online.
Transfer will take you from Koh Chang to Bangkok in 5 hours and 35 minutes, and the fare, depending on a car capacity, will be from 130 dollars for an Economy car class to 159 dollars for a Minibus 7 pax. It will take you approximately 5 hours and 50 minutes to get to Don Mueang Airport, with a minimum price for a trip of 143 dollars.
One of the Kiwitaxi service advantages is the possibility of paying the trip online in any currency you want. It is very convenient if you do not want to cash your money or do not have enough time to exchange it for the local currency.
Public Transport from Koh Chang
One can get from the island by public transport, but it is impossible to avoid travelling by ferry anyway. You can get to the mainland by ferry, which runs every hour from 06.00 to 18.00. The travel time will be 30-40 minutes, however, you should take into account that a ferry ticket, when bought on the island, will cost you a little more than a return trip from the mainland.
After travelling by ferry, you should get a shared taxi to the city of Trat, which is 20 km far from the pier. At the city bus station, one can take a direct bus or a shared taxi to one of the country airports.
Of course, if you buy tickets for a ferry and buses, the trip to Don Mueang Airport and Suvarnabhumi Airport will cost you much cheaper than a transfer service in Koh Chang. But a Kiwitaxi car will take you to any point on a map, so you will not have to worry about changes en route or a changing fare.
