Lonely Beach Express minibus service
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 Pattaya City - Lonely Beach Koh Chang shared minibus service. This shared minibus service runs 2 - 3 additional shuttles to & from Pattaya, starting at Lonely Beach on Koh Chang.
Unlike it's #??? big brother that makes scheduled stops at both Chantaburi's as well as Trat's bus stations and the Laem Ngop pier, 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 or the coffeeshop in front of the Siam Huts, from where it's possible to take (shared) taxi's (back) to other beaches on Koh Chang.
Our latest time tables for minivan transfer to and from Koh Chang are as follows:
|From -> To:||Departure times|
|Pattaya -> Lonely Beach||Coming||Soon||Coming||Soon|
|Lonely Beach ->Pattaya||Coming||Soon||Coming||Soon|
Above times are additional to the ones mentioned for the #??? big bus to Koh Chang.
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!
At this time, it's not possible to book seats for this service. Except for the peak dates between Christmas and the 2nd week of January and the Song Kran period around 13-15 April, we do not expect that reservations will be required.
