Bangkok to Pattaya Destination Reviews

The whole experience was excellent only small complaint would be that I book my ticket online but still have to queue up to get the ticket when I'm at the bus terminal but apart from that a great service and will definitely be booking my return trip to Bangkok

On time, but waiting to get on the bus & ensuring safety of luggage could have been better.
Bus Express, Roong Reuang Coach (รถรุ่งเรือง), Apr 20, 2023
Booked for 12pm departure, left at 12:15. I think Thailand do have problems with times, never on time. Comfortable ride. Driver stopped for 15 mins to filled up gas just before we arrived in Pattaya 10 mins later... overall not bad.

Good trip. Good price.
Bus Express, Roong Reuang Coach (รถรุ่งเรือง), Mar 22, 2023
I can't really complain since they get the job done and on-time, but the bus is dated and seems like it could use some maintenance. At first, I thought we were breaking down on the side of the road when the driver pulled to the left after paying a toll, but it was just so other cars could pass since our bus was struggling to get up to speed. It also appeared that the bus steering wheel wasn't well connected to the axel since it seemed the bus was often using two lanes to stay straight. I was a bit concerned, but we got there safely. The drver is excellent, but the mechanical condition of the bus is questionable. That said, I am using them again next week for another trip (different route), so hopefully the bus will be a bit more modern and functional.
