Is there a bus from kao san road bangkok all the way to Koh Chang?

We are unsure if this is a fact. It is supposedly a government bus, and not too expensive I believe. Or is it better to get the tiny bus which goes to Trat. Also is there a way to rent a car for use while on Koh Chang. We go in November. Thanks.

Hi robbo,

Anybus that leaves from Khao San Road is a private bus. Government buses leave from the main bus stations (Ekkamai, Morchit and Sai Thai Mai) only. If an agent tells you a bus leaving from Khao San Road is a government bus, they are lying.

Government buses leave from the eastern bus station on Sukhumvit Road - there is a skytrain station right out front.

You can hire both cars and motorbikes easily on Ko Chang.

I travelled from Trat to Ekamai bus station about 3 weeks ago. There are plenty of public buses (like pretty much every half hour) and they are only a couple of hundred baht. Avoid Khao San road buses - go to Ekamai and buy a ticket on the spot.
