A second service that starts from Phuket, makes a stop in Koh Samui and goes on to Trat has unfortunately been suspended, temporarily we hope. Instead Bangkok Airways are offering a minibus service to U-Tapao airport and then an onward flight to Samui or Phuket.
Getting to/from Trat Airport
Bangkok Airways operate a minibus service that takes passengers between Trat Airport and Koh Chang. Prices for a one way transfer are in the range of 500-700 Baht depending on the destination on Koh Chang.
The minibus picks up an ddrops off from your hotel and the ferry always waits for the minibus so you don’t need to worry about being stranded if your flight is delayed.
