Pattaya Koh Chang bus: the better choice to Ko chang
Why did this new bus service between Pattaya and the island of Koh Chang just now came to be? Wouldn't it have been easier to increase number of minibuses that start from the Conburi bus station and go directly to the ferry piers in Laem Ngop? Not really and here is why:
What is different about this bus # ??? service?
The existing bus lines all had similar problems:
They typically rely on private minibus operators, which makes their departure, if at all, and arrival time hightly unpredictable. Our Bus number ??? only runs basically non-stop between Pattaya and Koh Chang island, so the departure times are fixed and daily runs pretty much guaranteed.
Most important: all other buses will drop off passengers at the beginning of the ferry piers in Laem Ngop, where as the Pattaya <-> Koh Chang bus line takes you all the way onto the island to the Klong Son area, not far from the busy white sand beach area. Our Pattaya City - Koh Chang express Bus will just drive onto the Centerpoint ferry with all passengers and their luggage on board and, after a relaxing ferry ride of approximately 45 minutes where you can enjoy a snack and refreshments or a couple of beers, carry everyone over the first hills to Klong Son, where there will be several shared-taxi buses (so-called Song Teaw) and / or air conditioned minibuses waiting to carry our passengers all the way to their resort, hotel, bungalow or guesthouse anywhere on Ko Chang island. No need to carry all luggage and belongings from the bus to a public waiting area at the pier, from the waiting area a long way over the hot cement to the ferry, up the steep and small stairs to the passenger lounge and back down the same route upon arrival on the opposite side and getting in line for a Song Teaw transfer that may possible make you wait for the arrival of the next ferry boat, until there are enough passengers to share the cost of his long journey to the resorts, hotel and guesthouses along the west cost of Ko Chang island.
Safe and Secure
All of the Suvaranbhumi Burapha bus drivers have undergone a stringent selection and screening process and pass regular health and driving skill checkup's by certified professionals to ensure the safety of our passengers at all times. The bus is equipped with a state of the art video surveillance system for your driving safety and the safety of your person and personal belongings. Extra brake lights, fog lights and visibility markers have been put all around the bus, so it will be clearly visible when driving in heavy rains or when parked in a dark spot. During the drive, the chauffeur will be closed off from the cabin by a door, releaving him of potential distractions or good willed passengers that would like to have more information about a certain site of location around the road. Although the 2nd crew member will usually spend most of his time as the driver's second pair of eyes and possibly to study an experienced driver to see how he himself can one day before the captain of this coach, he will make rounds from time to time in the cabin and answer any question, where possible, although having google translate on your mobile might come in handy.
