Unlike with some of the other popular east coast islands in Thailand, it is possible to drive your car all the way to Koh Chang. There are 3 ferries that provide easy access to Koh Chang island. The distance from Bangkok to the ferries is only 310 kilometers, but when planning your journey, do not forget to include a 30 – 45 minutes ferry crossing plus as much as an hour waiting time, if you happen to travel during a Thai holiday. Driving a car in Thailand can be somewhat challenging at times, but the roads leading to Laem Ngop / Trat are among the best and safest roads in the country. When traveling from Bangkok there are only 2 routes that are worth mentioning. First there is the Bang Na – Trat road, which starts out as an elevated toll way that runs right on top of highway number 3.
Stay on this road until the Chonburi bypass and turn off onto highway 344 in the direction of Klaeng. After you passed through Ban Bung you will reach the Klaeng cross roads, after which you turn left back onto highway number toward Chantaburi and Trat.
As the Bang Na – Trat road can be sometimes difficult to reach, especially if your journey does not begin from Sukhumvith road or anywhere near the Bang Na area, it’s usually faster to get on to the express way in the direction of Rama 9 (IX) road. After paying the second toll, just after the rama 9 exit, you will find yourself on the number 7 motorway, which is an extension of Rama 9 (Srinakarin) road. This road will also lead you to highway number 344 where you turn left toward Klaeng and follow as listed above.
NOTE: Last ferry 7pm
