Well connected by an efficient network of buses and songtaews (passenger-carrying trucks), public transport is the best option if you don’t have a car. Within Rayong City, several lines of public buses operate between popular tourist destinations. These buses are colour-coded and most run from 06:00 to 18:00.
Ferries to Koh Samet depart from Baan Pae Pier on an hourly basis from 09:00 to 17:00 and drop tourists at major beaches, such as Sai Gaew, Ao Thaptim, Ao Phai, Ao Wong Duen and Ao Wai. The trip takes about 45 minutes, but if you take a chartered speedboat, it’s reduced to 15 minutes.
