The trip with the driver was pleasant as he was always concerned about me and asks at twice if I would like to take a rest to eat something, coffee or visit the rest room.
We arrived at the ferry station to Koh Chang at 11.15 hrs. I strongly believe if I would have departed from Suvarnabhumi Airport we could have arrived at least 30 minutes earlier.
As you may know there is a airport at Trat Province which is served by Bangkok Airways. Trat Province is the home province of ‘Koh Chang’ or Chang Island. But I did choose the car transfer for comfort and timing.
For air-transfer, I would need to check in at least one hour before departure, the departure is average 20 minutes delayed on airports, the flight in the small plane takes 45 minutes, I would need to wait about 20 minutes to get my luggage and then I would have a 30-40 minutes trip to the ferry station.
Considering all this, I would recommend everyone to choose transportation by car as it allows you to see some scenery of Thailand or you can simply take a nap in the car.
Most of the time the trip buy car is faster and most importantly, it’s cheaper as well. I also post a few pictures here, two from while one the car ferry and nice shot when arriving at Tranquility Bay Resort with. The views from my very spacious 120 sqm room have been simply breathtaking!

Koh Chang is home to about 5,000 permanent residents which means the island is not heavily populated like Phuket which is home to 800,000 permanent residents. However, because of the beauty of the island tourism has increased dramatically over the last few years.
We are proud to say that Koh Chang is one of Thailand’s most beautiful islands with long white sandy beaches, most half deserted.
The island and its vicinity are excellent places for snorkeling, diving and jungle hiking.
Koh Chang did play a role during World War 2 as in 1941, during the Japanese occupation, the Thai Navy fought the French in a battle in the waters to the southeast of Koh Chang.
After that, not much did happened on this island until the first backpacker foreigners started arriving on the back of local fishing boats in the mid-1970s.
In 1982, Koh Chang and its surrounding area became part of the protected Mu Ko Chang National Marine Park, and only very recently, in less than ten years, Koh Chang has turned itself into a major tourist destination, both for foreigners and local Thais.]]>
