The easiest way to travel from Koh Chang to Bangkok is to take a joint bus and ferry service which takes passengers all the way from the ferry pier in Koh Chang to the centre of Bangkok. You can also do the journey independently by taking a ferry to the mainland, a shared taxi into Trat, and from Trat a bus to Bangkok but this will take a lot longer and cost about the same.

About Wat Pho
Wat Pho, also known as Wat Phra Chetuphon Wimon Mangkhalaram Rajwaramahawihan or Wat Photaram, is located in Central Bangkok and is considered one of the most important temples in Thailand. Part of the coronation ceremony for the Kings of Thailand takes place in Wat Pho, and the reconstruction of an older temple to create modern Wat Pho was carried out under direction of King Rama 1, the first king of Thailand’s current royal dynasty. Wat Pho is best known for its 46 metre long reclining gold Buddha statue which is housed within its own magnificent shrine hall, however, there is a lot more to Wat Pho than simply the reclining Buddha. Wat Pho covers an area of over 80,000 square metres and is treasure trove of interesting buildings and religious artwork as well as a place of learning. Wat Pho is open daily to visitors from 08:00 to 18:30 and admission costs 100 THB.
During the late 18th Century King Rama I embarked on a programme of bringing old Buddha images from town such as Ayutthaya and Sukhothai which had been ravaged by war and bringing them to Wat Pho. The most important of the several hundred images that were brought to Wat Pho is the magnificent Phra Buddha Deva Patimakorn statue which sits on three tiered golden pedestal under a nine-tiered golden umbrella in the main ordination hall of Wat Pho temple. During the coronation ceremony new kings of Thailand come to pay homage to this statue.
