I will be in Siem Reap in a few days. thinking to to go Koh Chang. I heard that I can take a boat from Combodia to the island. is it true? where should I take the boat? thanks!!!
A good forum to try for travel info is Lonely Planet’s Thorn Tree - look in the South-east Asian section http://thorntree.lonelyplanet.com/
There’s no boat going directly from Cambodia to Koh Chang (unless things have changed in the last couple years). But…
If you go to Sihanoukville, in southern Cambodia, you can take the daily ferry to Krong Koh Kong, then a quick cab ride to the Thai border. From there, you take a minivan to Trat, then you change transportation and take a ride to the ferry dock for Koh Chang. You can make it from Sihanoukville to Koh Chang on the same day. I did it myself.
