If your schedule does not match our big bus time tables, and / or you are planning to stay in a resort, guesthouse or hotel on Lonely Beach, Kai Bae Beach, Bai Lan Beach, Bang Bao Beach, or any of the other southern or central Koh Chang beaches, you will probably be interested in our latest express service: the Suvarnabhumi Airport - Lonely Beach Koh Chang shared minibus service.


This shared minibus service runs 2 - 3 additional shuttles to & from Bangkok airport, starting at Lonely Beach on Koh Chang.


The Lonely Beach Express bus will not make any stops, other than a few gasoline and toilet stops at gasoline stations along the way. It's therefore also not possible to make extra stops on Koh Chang island itself, even if a passenger's final destination is road side.


This express bus, the name says it all, will only stop on Lonely Beach in the car park in front of the Siam Beach Resort, from where it's possible to take (shared) taxi's (back) to other beaches on Koh Chang.


From - to Departure times
Bangkok Airport - Lonely Beach 07:30, 11:00, 14:00
Lonely Beach - Bangkok Airport 06:00, 12:00, 17:00

The fare for the Lonely Beach Express bus is just 600 baht / person / transfer and that even includes the ticket for the ferry to Koh Chang and all taxes, but now you can buy a round trip ticket for only 800 baht!
