Now we know what Google says :sleep:

Don't use that toll motorway which is a short part of the nearly 300 km.

5 hours sounds realistic (maybe less).

Of course depending on the ferry times (assuming you want to take your car to the island).

 

And be aware of the excessive five day long weekend July 13 to 17. Expect hell of traffic and overrun island.

Note, if driving your car on Koh Chang, expect some steep hills.

Yes I think it is but don't head into Ban Chang follow the duel carriage way towards the Mapta phut Trading estate, then a left back onto highway 3 before the estate,  you'll avoid Ban Chang Centre going that way, Then Rayong, Sundays it's fairly quiet  or num 36 bypass.  I stopped using the 36 as roadworks were ongoing but I've heard now finished.

Steep hills present a challenge to you?
