Directions

1. Flying from Bangkok to Trat:
Bangkok Airways are the owners of Trat Airport and therefore have a monopoly on the daily flights to/from Bangkok. The prices for the 40 minute shuttle service isn’t cheap, with prices from 3,100 – 3,500 Baht/person one way depending on time of year, it can be a stress free way of getting there but the costs are prohibitive. Be warned the airline has a habit of cancelling flights if they aren’t too full, something which is all too common in Asia, so do double check your flight, even in high season. www.bangkokairways.com

The best route on time and money is the bus from Ekamai Bus Station to the Trat ferry piers, with prices around 300 Baht per person.
