Getting Around Koh Chang

Koh Chang Information

Due to its mountainous and hilly landscape, Koh Chang isn’t built for breezy getting around. Since he distance between each beach is not suitable for walking, and also the island has unpredictable roads and steep hills, it’s best to rely on ‘songtaew’ taxis. During low season it can be a hassle to find ‘songtaew’ taxi, and sometimes you may have to hire it privately.

Alternatively, you can rent a motorbike from the many motorbike rental shops found virtually on every beach on Koh Chang. The fee is 200 baht per day, safety helmet included (and should be worn at all times). Another option is to use the hotel’s transfer service. This can be an expensive option, but well worth it if you’re traveling with family or in group.

Biking provides a safe and fun way to get around, but not recommended for traveling between beaches, or up and down the hills.

Getting to other islands

Not so far from Lam Ngob Pier is Kromluang Chumphon Pier, where wooden taxi-boats, speedboats and chartered boats to other islands like Koh Kood, Koh Maak, Koh Wai, Koh Kham and Koh Laoya depart from. Speedboats can carry up to 30 passengers, leave daily at 13:00 and arrive Koh Maak at 13:40, and then Koh Kood at 14:10. The fare is 450 baht to Koh Maak and 500 baht to Koh Kood. You can also reach all these islands by boat from Bangbao pier on Koh Chang. It’s advisable to check the rate and schedule of these services beforehand because of possible changes due to the season, passenger load and competition among the ferry and boat operators.
