There is also a public minivan service from Trang to Koh Lanta (often very crowded) and a public ferry service. Please see below for more information about public ferries.
Getting from Trang to Koh Lanta – and indeed, Trang Airport to Koh Lanta – is easy to arrange. You can book a Trang To Koh Lanta Express Transfer which combines a minivan journey and speedboat ride to provide the quickest way to get from Trang to Koh Lanta.
Alternatively you can book a Trang to Koh Lanta private minivan transfer, which takes longer than the Express Transfer but is well priced for families and groups of friends.
As one of the main cities on the mainland south of Koh Lanta, Trang is a gateway to many other Islands and has a train station and an airport with direct transfers to Bangkok. It also makes for a nice stopover for traveling further south to Hat Yai or Malaysia.
Koh Lanta To Trang Ferry
You can catch a ferry from Koh Lanta to Trang Hat Yao Pier – there is one ferry daily during high season. When you arrive in Hat Yao Pier many local Tuk Tuk Taxi drivers will be waiting to take you to where you would like to go.
