So I want to go to Koh Chang in lieu of hanging in Bangkok at the beginning of my trip which is on the 9th of February especially with all that is happening in Bangkok. However, I already have already purchased my flight from Bangkok DMK to Chiang Mai which leaves at 12:35pm on the 14th of February.
So the plan was to take the Lonely Beach Express Bus to get to Koh Chang quickly on the 10th of February. bussuvarnabhumikohchang.com/lonely-beach-exp…
I would like to take an airplane but it is pretty expensive.
So if I take the Express bus, I will have 2.5 days in Koh Chang. Since I need to catch my flight on the 14th, I was hoping to take the last bus out of Koh Chang at 17:00 on the 13th so at least I can have an extra half day, making it 3 days total in Koh Chang. Do you know how long it will take me to get back to Bangkok? And sorry if I am confused or have this wrong, do I have to take a ferry from Koh Chang to reach that bus at 17:00, meaning I actually have to leave Koh Chang even earlier? Also, is it safe to assume there is no way I can leave Koh Chang in the morning of the 14th to catch my flight from DMK to Chiang Mai? Is this a unwise idea given the travel time to get to and from there given the duration or would it be worth it?
