Suvarnabhumi Airport. Pick up's from Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport are currently 4300 baht for a Toyota Camry limousine or 4800 baht for a minibus and can be arranged via the Koh Kood Car transfer website. Genarally speaking: if you want to make it to the islands the same day, your flight will have to land at Bangkok Airport before 06:00. If you arrive later, we can still offer you a relaxing & comfortable ride to your hotel or guesthouse in Trat city. We recommend the SA hotel, because of it's budget friendliness and the central location on a quiet little square in the city center.
