Transfer Pattaya - Koh Chang and back, as well as bus and taxi

I recently posted a detailed description of what how to get from bangkok to koh changand now I want to write separately about the transfer fromPattaya If you haven’t read the link above, I’ll remind you that Koh Chang is an island, so first you need to go by land, then go by ferry, and go to the required beach on the island itself. What Pattaya wins in front of Bangkok is the fact that it is full of transfers to Koh Chang.

There are 3 ways to get to Koh Chang from Pattaya: by transfer, independently by bus and by taxi. For reference, the distance between Pattaya and Koh Chang is about 270 km.

How to get from Pattaya to Koh Chang with comfort

Minibus group transfer

This method is the easiest and most convenient for thosewho is without a car. And I, frankly, would not consider others, I do not see much point in saving an extra 100 rubles. So, what is a good transfer? It is sometimes called a tour, they say Pat Pattaya - Koh Chang tour. And it is good that you will be taken from the hotel to the hotel, that is, from the hotel in Pattaya to the hotel on Koh Chang. Moreover, you can immediately buy a return ticket, and this is really a tour. Transfer can be bought at any travel agency. The price tag will be offered 600-900 baht one way, including a ferry ticket.

As a rule, all local travel agencies sell the services of several transport companies, so there is not much difference where to buy. Also via the Internet you can buy through 12Go, the same will work.

Pattai Koh Chang Tickets>

Payment by credit card or PayPal, an electronic ticket, very convenient.

Office 35 Pattaya Group

One of the 35 Pattaya Group companies

The lowest price tag offers 35 GroupPattaya. I indicated their office on the map, it is located on Pattaya Tai Street (South Pattaya). The only thing you need to go to their office, the mediators will sell their tickets more expensive.

Minibass will cost 400 baht, including ferry ticket, one way to Koh Chang Ferry Pier pier. A ticket to the hotel on Koh Chang costs 550 baht one way, including a ferry ticket.
Minibus runs 3 times a day: 7:00, 9:00, 13:00.
The journey takes 3-4 hours to the pier, and then how it will be with the ferry.

You need to buy tickets in advance, for a day at least, otherwise there may be no seats. Also at 35 Group Pattaya, you can go to other places. In addition, Koh Chang is transported to Samet, Koh Wai, Koh Mak and Koh Kood.

If you are going to return to Pattaya laterChang, then buy a return ticket right away, it’s with an open date (you’ll need to warn somewhere two days before returning), because there’s no office of 35 Group Pattaya on Koh Chang, it’s near the Koh Chang Ferry Pier on the mainland, and not the fact that there will be places. Accordingly, if you do not buy a return ticket in advance, then you will have to buy transfers on the island at local travel agencies at a higher price.

Taxi Pattaya - Koh Chang

The most expensive option. How to go by taxi, I think everyone knows and nothing needs to be explained. Go out and look for a car. As an option, order an individual transfer in any travel agency. The cost somewhere 3000-4000 baht per car, if you go to the pier. Travel time 3-4 hours.

Another taxi option is - transfer fromKiwitaxi (steam included), which can be ordered in advance online. The car will be entirely yours, without other passengers. Conveniently, no problems, even leaving the house is not necessary. For the price it is especially beneficial if you are more than 4 people. Then the amount is divided into all. It is also worth a taxi caught on the street.

Car rental

My favorite option. Recently, I always and everywhere take the car. You do not depend on anything, complete freedom. Given that cheap car hire in Tae is available to everyone.

You need to rent a car through Economybookings,then the price will be 2 times lower than approximately. This is an intermediary broker, issues offers from all international distributors. That is, no small companies and individuals who can then throw.

On Koh Chang, although there are narrow roads, it is quite convenient to drive a small car, such as Honda Jazz or Toyota Vios. I traveled around the island for 2 weeks and no problem.

Bus Pattaya - Koh Chang

The most budget way, more complex and suitablefar from everyone. Its essence comes down to the fact that you need to take a bus from Pattaya to the bus station in Trat, transfer to the bus to the pier, then take the ferry and swim to the island, take the bus to the desired beach on the island pier.

How to get from Trat to the pier and how to move on the island of Koh Chang, I have already written in a general article How to get from Bangkok to Chang. And everything about the ferries I described in the article Ferry Trat - Koh Chang. So it remains to tell how to get to Trat from Pattaya.

You need to go to the Sukhumvit road at the intersection withCentral street and there catch the bus. It is advisable to ask the local people that they are sitting in the offices of bus companies or from motorcycles, where it is better to do it and when there will be a bus. They also help him to stop. The bus station from where he is going is gone, runs a couple of times a day, around 6:00 and around 11:30. He travels and picks up everyone along the way. The journey time is 5 hours, the ticket price is about 180 baht.

Also on this bus you can not get to Trat and go on the road. There is a desk on the highway, from which minibuses go to the pier. But IMHO to do this for newcomers will be difficult.

Life hacking 1 - how to buy a good insurance

Choosing insurance is now unrealistically difficult, so to help all travelers, I compile a rating. To do this, I constantly monitor forums, study insurance contracts and use insurance by myself.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
