the ferry to koh chang

We will be arriving at the Trat airport at about 5pm. Is the ferry still running at this time? Are there private water transport if we miss the last ferry over? What would that cost?

When you arrive in Trat aiport you should take the Bangkok Airways minibus direct to your resort on Koh Chang. Cost is around 280 baht/person. (depending on where you're staying) There's no public transport from the airport to ferry pier, so unless you're being met at the airport you shoudl take the minibus.

Ferries run until 7pm, there's no danger of missing the last ferry and if you did there would be a whole plan full of people who missed the boat too, so it'd be up to Bangkok Airways to sort things out. But, in reality, the ferry will always wait for the airport minibuses.

If the flight is delayed for some reason, it wont land in Trat after sunset. (There have been cases fo the plane leaving Bangkok late and then turning back when the pilot realised they couldnt make it to Trat before sunset.)
