At your arrival in Bangkok, and once you have passed the immigration and collected your luggage, you will have to cross the airport and go to the domestic flights departure to check-in.

Bangkok Airways has 3 flights per day from Bangkok to Trat. They have few airport lounges with free refreshments, snacks and Wi-Fi even if you are travelling in economic class. Check for the closest from your departure gate, the waiting will be better.

The waiting time at the immigration can be very long and last easily an hour. If you don't want to wait that long or if you have a short time to catch your next flight, I recommend you the Fast Track service. A person will wait for you at the gate of your arrival and bring you to the Fast Lane immigration where you will not have to wait. Then once your luggage collected, this person will guide you to the next check-in desk and assist you if you need more help. Believe me, it's worth of it!

Here is the Bangkok Airways timetable:

From Bangkok to Trat  From Trat to Bangkok 
Flight PG301
Departure: 08.45 AM
Arrival: 09.45 AM
Flight PG302
Departure: 10.15 AM
Arrival: 11.15 AM
Flight PG305
Departure: 11.45 AM
Arrival: 12.45AM
Flight PG306
Departure: 01.15 PM
Arrival: 02.15 PM
Flight PG307
Departure: 05.10 PM
Arrival: 06.10 PM
Flight PG308
Departure: 06.40 PM
Arrival: 07.40 PM

The flight itself lasts less than 1 hour. And still during the flight they have time to serve you a nice light meal. Trat airport itself is a nice experience. One, just long enough runway to land and take off. Funny little trains waiting for you to bring you to the small outdoor airport. You are warmly welcomed to Trat!

Once you have arrived in Trat airport, you will have 3 different choices:

  • The best and the most certain is to deal a private transport directly from your resort. This is not the cheapest way but for sure the fastest and the most convenient. In some cases you can be alone or with other hotel guests. Ask to your resort when you are booking it. Remember to check if the ferry ticket is included to the price.
  • You can also order in advance a private driver from a travelling agency. It's a fast and easy solution. Like the private transport from the resort, check if the ferry ticket is included to the price.
  • Or you just pick a taxi which will bring you to the ferry pier or directly to your resort. This is the cheapest way but be aware that you will not be alone and the taxi driver will take as many persons as he can which means that he may also do a lot of stops. Taxi can ask you to pay the ferry ticket or they will include it into their rate. Check with the driver before.

From Trat airport to the ferry piers (there are 3 piers connecting to Koh Chang) it will take about 15-20 minutes by car.>

Then 30 to 45 minutes in the ferry. The waiting at the pier can be short or very long, it depends if there are national days or holidays. In this case a lot of people will go to spend their long weekend in the island.
