Bus from Pattaya to Koh Chang

Recommended Posts

So I see from Ekami and I think BKK there are buses that go to Koh Chang.  But I don't seem to see a bus from Pattaya to Koh Chang?  I see the mini vans and taxis, but no bus?

Maybe this helps from a fairly recent thread:

(member @jobsworth)

Would have been my guess that buses from Ekamai to Trat stop somewhere in Pattaya.

Just that I wouldn't know where.

Why not just use a rope if you want to suicide ? How can someone give this kind of advice is beyond understanding. Just like if Internet didn't exist.

Ferry ticket at a special price of 2-3 times the regular!

Minivans leave from behind Numchai on Sukhumvit but they are pretty hairy!

Not advisable!. When you arrive in Trat you will have to take a songtaew. That means: waiting untill enough passagers AND will bring you to another tranferpoint not far from the centerpointferry. Again waiting befor you are transferred to the ferry.

Some general remarks. I am living on Koh Chang so have some experience. There are two ferry boats. One is the ceterpointferry. This is the one that most of the minibusses use because it is a cheaper ferry. But this ferry  is slower, much older then the other one and is its arrivalpoint  is a little bit further away from the westside of koh chang. Koh Chang westside is where 95% of all resorts are.

The other ferry  leaves the Mainland at the ao tammachatpier. This is the best and most popular one.

But in high season cann have longer witingtimes then the ceterpointpier.

Both ferry arrivals at koh chang have  songtaews waiting for you. They bring you to your hotel.

When you are dropped at the ferrypier at the mainland you can always take the first ferry that leaves. That is a real diffence with when you arrive in a van that brings you all the way to yuour hotel. In high season cars including the vans have sometimes to wait because a ferry doe has a certain capacity to take up cars.  Therefor a van that brings you to your hotel is not always faster then a van that drops you at the pier.

Another remark: do not travel to trat or to chantaburi. The transport from there to the ferrypier let you wait untill enough persons have boarded the songtaew. Can take quite some waitingtime.

There is a bus to Chiang Mai from Pattaya. The bus depot on Sukhumvit near Khao Noi junction. It is an all nighter and leaves around 9pm.
