If you prefer not to spend half a day in our big bus, 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 our own bus station next to the entrance to the Siam Hut bungalows on Lonely Beach on Koh Chang, but picking up passengers from most resort on the west coast is possible if booked through the reception of those resorts.
