Bus and taxi stations, etc.

Laem Sok pier

Express boat to Ko Kood every day 12:30, ride takes 1:30 hours

LPG station

If your car is fitted with LPG, this is the only place in Trat [so far] to fuel it.

Going from Trat to Cambodia

A mini-van from Trat bus station to Hat lek (Thai Border) is the fastest and most comfortable option. Price is 120 Baht. They leave every hour, and the trip takes about 1.5 hours.

How to get to Trat

From Bangkok By bus: Busses go from Ekkamai Eastern Station or MoChit Northern Station. There are buses from Bangkok  international airport (Suvaranabhumi) as well, but they are not as frequent.

Trat airport (TDX)

Note: the airport is quite far away from Trat, and the only transportation out of the airport is to Ko Chang with a mini-bus that goes via the ferry at Ao Thammachat pier

Central bus station

Unlike the old bus station of Trat, the new station (built 2007) is not located in the center of town, and you’ll need a taxi to take you to the markets/guest houses area.

Taxi to Ko Chang

Goes to Center Point pier. Stops at the ticket office for those who haven’t bought a ticket yet.

Taxi to Cambodia

Cheaper transportation (Songthaw taxi) to the Had Lek checkpoint than the aircon vans at the bus station, but the car also stops at Klong Yai for a break, and you never know how long it’s gonna take.
