Pannipa Pattaya Tour

Company Information

Pannipa Pattaya Tour is a minivan service that operates on the Bangkok to Pattaya route. The operator’s schedule and cheap tickets make it a popular choice with travellers on all budgets.

Routes served by Pannipa Pattaya Tour

Bangkok–Pattaya

Pannipa Pattaya Tour offers just one route – connecting the capital city of Bangkok with the incredibly popular tourist destination of Pattaya.

There are six services throughout the day from Bangkok to Pattaya with tickets available for just THB190 for the three hour trip. There is the same number of departures each day headed in the opposite direction, from Pattaya back to the capital. These services leave between 06.00 and 19.00 in both directions so there should be a departure which suits you.

Pros

There is a good range of departure times on Pannipa Pattaya Tour services connecting Bangkok with Pattaya. The 06.00 service could be perfect for those who have a lunchtime flight from one of Bangkok’s airports, whether it is from Suvarnabhumi Airport or Don Mueang International Airport.

Similarly, if you need to arrive into Bangkok to catch a connecting bus or train then the generous timetable offered by Pannipa Pattaya Tour can be useful when planning your journey. If you have a trip booked from Pattaya then it can be helpful to arrive in the city by 09.00, so Pannipa Pattaya Tour could be an ideal choice for you.

Cons

The range of routes offered by Pannipa Pattaya Tour is clearly extremely limited, this can be a hassle if you are arranging further transport as you will have to look for another operator for this stage of the trip. It can also work out more expensive to use several providers. It would be helpful if Pannipa Pattaya Tour also offered services to destinations such as Ayutthaya or Kanchanaburi which would be popular routes from Bangkok.

The other main issue with travelling with Pannipa Pattaya Tour is the operator’s use of minivans which are often a lot more cramped and uncomfortable compared to the larger buses that are used on some routes. This is especially problematic if you are travelling with quite a lot of luggage as space is extremely limited inside the minivan and it may be the case that you will have to pay for an extra ticket for your bags as they will take up a seat that could be used by another paying passenger. Even if you do not have to pay any additional fees for your luggage, minivans are best avoided if you have several bags as it will guarantee an uncomfortable journey and you probably will not be too popular with your fellow passengers!

Keep in mind

If you have a flight to catch from one of the airports in Bangkok it is worth remembering that it will probably take at least an hour from the bus terminal so make sure you have allowed for enough time when planning your trip.

Travellers Reviews

Passengers choose Pannipa Pattaya Tour largely on the range of departure times throughout the day and the low cost of tickets. However, the operator is obviously only an option for those looking to travel between Bangkok and Pattaya, if you are not making this trip then unfortunately Pannipa Pattaya Tour cannot help. The lack of choice on routes that the operator offers is clearly an issue and means that passengers will have to do more planning and potentially spend more money when researching their trip. Given the choice, most people would probably prefer to book all of their transport through the same provider as it is far less hassle and ensures you can spend time planning the more interesting aspects of your trip!

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

The price we bought from 12go is more expensive than the onsite price. The counter to change the voucher to tickets was far and difficult to find because it's very small. The van departure was also late. Both driver and the guide were difficult to communicate in English. I thought its still better to take the bus than the van to go to Pattaya.

Bought ticket to depart at 7pm from the operator office. However, the van was late and the local operator office staffs claimed van will only come at 8pm, as if it's not their fault and it's the booking company's fault. Van came at around 7.30pm. The van was very cramped and the driver stopped by at Bangna's petrol oil station to refill petrol (seriously? You expect your passengers to wait 15 min for you to refill petrol and not before your pick up the passengers?), the worst moments because they turned off the AC and it was already cramped inside. Not ideal for claustrophobic people. Just get the freaking normal bus that is 50 baht cheaper and much more spacious and professional! The only good things were that the van was quite new and we are allowed to be dropped off at other places along the way (eg. Mochit BTS instead of the original bus terminal stop that is more convenient).

Found the station by the GPS coordinates provided in the PDF file of my booking. The place was quite far away from my hotel so I used a tuk-tuk and then walked. I printed the file at home and the manager at the station took the print. The trip lasted for approx. 2 hours not including the time to get to the boarding point. Overall, it's a decent non-expensive way to get to Bangkok from Pattaya

The rating is for the driver getting us to Bangkok ahead of schedule and playing good music. The station in Pattaya is a storefront in the hot sun, far from the main tourist areas, that no cab driver could locate. Once back in Bangkok the driver made a stop at what looked like the Mo Chit MRT station but announced it in Thai, so we were forced to stay on all the way back to the station then take a taxi. The taxi stand had a helpful officer who gave directions to the cab driver (metered) this cab driver then took us the wrong way pulled over and sent us to another (unmetered) taxi who spoke some English and got us to our final destination.

The van left on time but then again we are a group of 3 girls who booked 4 seats, 1 for our luggage and no one from the van company helped us with our luggages. And the terminal is actually really from the city center.

Van was comfortable, trip lasted 2 hours instead of 3. BUT the station was impossible to find. Pattaya Panipa is not correct, and the two taxis I took both left me in places that were wrong. No one could tell me where the station was. The name of the hotel in front of it is The Park Hotel, and not Park Pattaya Hotel. I missed my van because I got lost for more than 1 hour, but I took the next one, so it ended all right. Advise : be way more precise as to the location of the station.
