Traveling To Lonely Beach On Koh Chang Island In Thailand Isn’t Very Difficult. Here You
Getting to Koh Chang is relatively easy and fast in comparison to many other islands. It is located in Trat province and is approximately 17Km from Ao Thammachat ( for ferries to Koh Chang ); 22Km from Centerpoint pier ( for ferries to Koh Chang ); 25km from Krom Luang pier ( for speedboats to Koh Mak ) and 60Km from Laem Sok – where the passenger boats to Koh Kood depart.
Btw, I saw some tourists boarding a bus to Khao San from the Centrepoint ferry pier for 300 Bt – had I not pre-booked my return ticket with bangkok to koh samet Cherdchai I too could have taken it – somehow I had not read about it anywhere before going (I knew about the vans going from Khao San but not a bus) – am assuming that this bus would have taken much lesser time that the Cherdchai one!
Tickets for seats on a shared minibus service are available is between Trat Airport and hotels on Koh Chang, for people flying BKK – Trat on Bangkok Airways The official price, that you will see advertised at Bangkok Airport & Trat Airport is 500 Baht one way, or 900 Baht return to hotels on the west coast beaches on Koh Chang.
Even in the rainy season cancellations are extremely rare as the sea between Koh Chang and the mainland is sheltered from any tropical storms that may blow up. the only time the strait gets choppy is in November – December, following the end of the rainy season, when strong northerly winds sometimes blow.
Once on Koh Chang, it is around 10 minutes drive to White Sand Beach; 20 minutes to Klong Prao beach; 25 minutes to resort son Kai Bae beach; 30 minutes to Lonely beach and around 45 minutes if you are staying in the far south of Koh Chang near Bangbao or Klong Kloi beach.
