About the ride from Koh Chang to Bangkok

After some time spent in Koh Chang, you’ll want to stay in this Thai fairytale forever. However, it’s time to say goodbye to the island paradise and continue your journey through Thailand. Pack up your bags, make some last memories, and buckle up… it’s time for Bangkok! Get ready to try some of the best street food in the world, explore the beautiful royal palaces and Buddhist temples, and party like there’s no tomorrow.

When traveling the 350 km (217 mile) distance between Bangkok and Koh Chang, travelers have three options. You can take a standard bus + ferry ride which takes around 9 hours to arrive. In case you’re traveling with family or your squad, and you want a bit more privacy, you can book a private car or a private minivan with a driver. 

A bus is a great option for those who are traveling on a budget. The tickets are cheaper and the ferry ride is included in the price. On the other hand, for passengers who prefer a faster and more comfortable ride, a private transfer is a great choice. If you choose private transportation, you’ll have an additional expense for the ferry ride tickets (about $2.50 per person).

 

What to see when traveling from Koh Chang to Bangkok

The first part of your journey is a ferry ride from the island to the coast. This is the perfect time to snap a few more shots and enjoy the sunshine, the views over the sea, and the blue sky. After a very short ride, you’ll reach the land and continue your journey across Thailand’s countryside. You can use this time to read, organize your photos, or write a blog post about your unforgettable experiences in Koh Chang.

Bangkok is an eclectic city that never sleeps. No matter what time of day it is, there’s always something to do here. The very first thing you should do when you visit Bangkok is to explore the streets, try some of the amazing street food, and visit the markets. You can’t really say you’ve experienced Bangkok until you feel the vibes of the streets.

The capital of Thailand has a rich history and culture, and you can spend days exploring its numerous temples, shrines, palaces, and museums and only scratch the surface of it. Some of the must-visit attractions in Bangkok are the Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaew, Wat Pho, Wat Arun, Erawan Shrine, Bangkok National Museum, Jim Thompson House Museum, Bangkok Art and Culture Centre, and many more.

Bangkok has many faces, and once the sun goes down, you’ll be able to experience some of the best nightlife in the world. Explore some of the city’s numerous rooftop bars, hip cocktail bars, and clubs. If you want to meet travelers alike, you can join a pub crawl tour.

Even though Bangkok is a lively city, there are also many parks where you can charge your batteries after a night out or just relax for a couple of hours.

There’s a lot of things to see and do in the city, and the time you spend here will quickly fly by.

 

How to get from Koh Chang to Bangkok?

Taking a bus + ferry 

Taking a bus + ferry ride from Koh Chang to Bangkok is the perfect choice for travelers on a budget. This is the cheapest and most popular option. However, the ride is 3 hours longer than a private transfer. Another advantage of this option is that the ferry tickets are included in the price, which is not the case with private transportation.

 

Driving with a private car

If you’re traveling from Koh Chang to Bangkok with a family or a group of friends of up to 3 people, Private Cars with a driver might be a good option for you. This is a very comfortable, quick, and luxurious journey. The ride is completely personalized according to your needs. You’ll have an option to choose your departure time, as well as pick up and drop off spots. However, you should be aware of an additional cost for a ferry ride, which will cost you $2.5 per person.

 

Taking a minivan

The most common option among groups of travelers between 3 and 9 passengers are Private Minivans. They are a great choice for those traveling with families or a group of friends. The journey is very comfortable, fast, and personalized. You can choose the departure time that works best for you, and the operator will pick you up and drop you off at your hotel or the airport. If you choose this option, you should know that ferry tickets aren’t included in the price, and you’ll have to pay an additional $2.5 per person cost for ferry tickets.
