The Koh Chang Bridge is a proposed bridge connecting the island of Koh Chang to the mainland in Trat province, Thailand.
The proposal is for a 10-km sea bridge from Laem Ngob sub-district on the mainland to Ban Dan Kao on the island.
Koh Chang is currently served by a car ferry that takes 30 minutes and runs every hour. More services run during peak travel times, but queues that stretch back 2.5 kilometres have been reported during holiday periods.
