    Hello - we will be coming from Siam Reap, hence cross the border at Poipet on Cambodia side. Trying to understand transport from thai side down to Ko Chang - as in 2 buses and a boat? or 1 bus and a boat? and how long this will take. I have no idea how frequent the transport is in this direction as everything seems to be heading towards Bangkok.

    I understand it is all acheivable in a day - but if it is a really full on day of travel maybe we will give it a miss, as time is short, and we would only get 2 full days in Ko Chang (excluding the night we arrive) and then have to head to Bangkok.

    Any advice appreciated.

    Hi ezzie,

    Angkor to the beaches -- a common question indeed!

    Tis easy!

    Once in Poipet take a tuk tuk to Aranyprathet bus station and grab the first bus to Chanthaburi (buses regular through the day). Once there switch buses for Trat (buses regular through the day). Once at Trat, take a songtheaw to the pier, boat to Ko Chang and you're there. Sounds confusing, but it is real simple.

    With good connections you should be able to be on the beach within 5 hours of crossing the border.
