We left Bangkok At 10:30 in the morning on Monday 22nd. The traffic wasn't bad. We used toll way because we live Southwest of Bangkok and were heading to East. We took Bangna toll way then drove on the motorway from Cholburi to Rayong about three hours. We get in Trat province around 3pm then continued to Laem-ngob district another 3o minutes. We arrived the old pier at 4. The reason we took the old pier because we save a ticket for oue car. The new pier has been opened a few years ago. they claimed that you arrive the island faster but you pay a ticket for your car. Anyway, we paid for the old one for five people about 480 Baht(currency now 35 Baht =$1 US) round trip. I think it is reasonable.
We arrive in the island about 5 pm,searching for hotel for a good deal. We ended up at Noren resort for the first night. The room and facilities were nice but there no beach way exit. We thought it's not convenience to take the girls to the ocean. We moved the next day to a place called K.B. resort we liked this place alot.
