By Car
Eastern Thailand and its islands can be easily reached by road and three regular car ferries operate to Koh Chang.
There are two main driving routes from Bangkok, both around 310km long.
The first route is to take Highway 3, the Bangna - Trat road. There is a quicker elevated tollway running above Highway 3. Continue until the Chonburi Bypass and here turn off onto Highway 344. Follow this road past Ban Bung and when you reach the Klaeng Crossroads turn back onto Highway 3 and continue on towards Trat.

Alternatively you can leave Bangkok on the Motorway that is a continuation of the Rama IX, Srinikarin road. This road goes onwards and meets highway 344 where you can continue to Trat as detailed above.

To avoid Trat and go directly to the ferry departure points turn right onto the wellsignposted Laem Ngop road about 20km outside Trat.
Driving from Pattaya take Highway 36 which joins Highway 3 heading towards Trat shortly after Rayong.
Private transfers to and from the island can be arranged with Evolution Tour on 089 603 9642.
