Trat and Koh Chang Transportation and transfer guide

Flights There are no flights to Trat at all, so the best bet is to make your way here by bus or by renting a vehicle elsewhere and drive here yourself.

Bus Both air and non-air conditioned buses leave from the eastern Bus Terminal (Ekamai) in Bangkok. Non air-conditioned buses leave many times daily, starting from 07.00-23.00 hrs. Air-conditioned buses leave every one and a half hours, starting from 07.00-23.00 hrs.

From Bangkok the buses to Trat cost around 200 Baht depending on whether it is air-conditioned or not. The trip takes five to six hours one way by air-con bus or about eight hours by ordinary bus. From Chanthaburi to Trat, the ordinary buses take about 30 minutes. If one goes by taxi from Chanthaburi to Trat, it takes around 45 minutes

Car or motorbike The only other way to get to Trat is by hiring a vehicle yourself and driving there.

Around Trat itself The best bet is to hail either a songtaew (taxi/truck/bus) or a samlor (motorbike/sidecar/taxi) for a minimal cost of around 10 Baht per person within the city limits for the samlor and 5 Baht per person for the songtaew or 20 to 40 Baht for the vehicle.
