How to get to Pattaya from Bangkok

How to get from Bangkok to Pattaya

Sitting only 150 km south of Bangkok along the Eastern Seaboard Pattaya is easily reached from the capital by bus, van or taxi. The travel time is between 2 and 3 hours and it is highly dependent on traffic and on the route as some buses call to Chonburi, Sri Racha or Laem Chabang on the way and others go direct. There are big buses to Pattaya from all the three bus terminals in Bangkok, all arriving to Pattaya Northern Bus Station plus a direct transfer from Suvarnabhumi airport. For more flexibility opt for Bangkok–Pattaya van. Vans leave from different locations throughout Bangkok and some bring you right into the centre of Pattaya. Bus and van tickets to Pattaya cost between THB120 and THB400. Taxi remains the fastest and plushest way to travel door-to-door with prices fluctuating from THB1,700 for a 3-passenger car to THB4,000 for a private van accommodating up to 9 pax.

One of the best motorways in the whole country, motorway 7, links Bangkok to Chonburi and Pattaya, so getting from Bangkok to Pattaya by bus, by taxi or by private car is usually smooth as silk.

From Bangkok to Pattaya by bus

There are three major bus terminals in Bangkok: the southern Sai Tai Mai, the northern Morchit and the eastern Ekkamai, the two latter being the most convenient option for getting from Bangkok to Pattaya due to their location. Buses to Pattaya leave throughout the day and seats sell out quickly as the route enjoys great popularity both with locals and foreign travellers.

Ekkamai bus terminal is the most logical starting point if you are heading to the Eastern Seaboard. It is conveniently located by the eponymous BTS station. Buses from Ekkamai may bring you to Pattaya in mere two hours, but to be more realistic, consider three hours as a norm as they often detour from motorway to let passengers get off in Chonburi, Sri Racha or Laem Chabang. Pattaya Bus operates three buses from Ekkamai – in the morning (9.30am), in the afternoon (1.30pm) and in the evening (5.30pm), all at THB127.

Morchit, located in the north of the capital, is a convenient choice if you stay anywhere in the area or arrive to the bus terminal by a shuttle bus from Don Mueang airport. Note that regardless the fact that there is a BTS station of the same name, you will need to take a bus or a taxi for a short ride to the bus terminal from BTS Morchit. Buses from Morchit take about three hours to reach Pattaya and also cost THB127 with Pattaya Bus company. There are three buses a day at 9am, 1pm and 5pm.

In Pattaya, buses arrive to the Northern bus station located in North Pattaya Road, 200 m from Sukhumvit intersection. To get to the city from there you have a choice of songthaews (THB40 per person), motorbike taxis or normal taxis – always negotiate the cost of your ride in advance.

From Bangkok to Pattaya by train

Technically, it is also possible. There is a morning train #283 which leaves Bangkok at 6.55am and arrives to Pattaya at 10.34am. It makes plenty of stops on the way and in general not a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Prepare to spend about four hours in a third class fan seats only carriage and do not expect breath-taking views. But true, you will have a lot of opportunities for exciting people watching. Out of all Pattaya train stations the most picturesque one is probably Huay Yai train station. And yes, tickets are dirt-cheap.

From Bangkok to Pattaya by taxi

If you travel with a lot of luggage or with a large family or a group of friends, consider taking a taxi which will bring you from Bangkok to Pattaya door-to-door. We recommend the company Glassflower because of their excellent service, comfortable and clean cars, best prices and their understanding that the safety of the passenger comes first. Glassflower also has minivan available that can accommodate groups with up to 12 people. PGS is another company that offers smart solutions both for an individual and a group transfer. Choose their Toyota Camry for 3 passengers at THB2,200 or opt for a roomier Toyota Commuter which accommodates up to 9 passengers and costs THB2,530 – which makes it a great option. The rates are all-inclusive – no extra tolls, no additional fee for pickup and drop-off in specific locations, and the trip should last no more than three hours – normally less, depending on your starting point in Bangkok.

Just arrived to Suvarnabhumi? Go to Pattaya from the airport!

If you enter Thailand through its main airport, Suvarnabhumi, with Pattaya being your next destination, use bus and taxi services to get from Suvarnabhumi directly to Pattaya without calling to Bangkok’s bus terminals. Bell Travel operates buses from the lower level of the airport near gate 8.

Buses depart every two hours from 8am till 6pm. Their VIP24s are comfortable enough – and much roomier than an economy seat with any of the air carriers. The whole trip lasts about two hours. In Pattaya, passengers are brought to Pattaya Northern bus station in Pattaya North Road.

Note: Tickets for the Suvarnabhumi-Pattaya bus can be bought on the spot, but note that the route is extremely popular, so in the overwhelming majority of cases you will not be able to get the tickets for the next bus and will have to wait till the next but one departure. If booked in advance, tickets cost THB272.

Tip: Right next to the gate 8 on the lower level of Suvarnabhumi, from where buses to Pattaya depart, there is a cheap Thai-style canteen, Magic Point, where you can refill your stomach with mouthwatering Thai favourites, including rice with chicken (khao man gai), rice with pork leg (khao kha moo), tom yam and the like at very moderate prices (starting from THB40 per dish).

Charters of PGS bring you to Pattaya from Suvarnabhumi door-to-door even with more comfort. You can choose between Toyota Camry for three passengers (THB1,980) and Toyota Commuter accommodating 9 people (THB2,200). The latter is a great option from the point of view of a price-quality ratio. Rates are all-inclusive, meaning no extra tolls, luggage or drop-off charges.

Why go to Pattaya?

Pattaya is notorious for its red lights districts, lady bars and obtrusive ladyboys hunting for easy victims under the stately coconut trees along Beach Road. For years Pattaya has been rightfully dubbed the City of Sin: poor people beauties have been waiting money from foreigner – have been looking for their true love burdened with her extensive family.

Pattaya is a famous tourist city in Thailand. The nickname is a city that never sleeps. Because you can travel both day and night. In the past Pattaya famous for prostitution and vice. But currently there are changes to the city of city image a variety of people, food, including tourist attractions. Known as the city of truly independent. Now attracting a fair share of international package tourists, families and bangkokians who flood the city on weekends and during Thai public holidays.

Though Pattaya cannot boast rare or unique sights, the festive mood of the city never fails to conquer the hearts of its visitors. Restaurants of authentic cuisine from all over the world at astonishingly affordable prices and street food cheapies; first class international hotel chains and simple guesthouse rooms; elegant high-rises and traditional shophouses; modern shopping malls and entertainment centres and colorful night markets are all there. There is a choice of nearby islands which literarily transport you to that perfect island paradise and a growing number of family-oriented attractions secure Pattaya;s status of one of Thailand’s most popular vacation destinations.

Getting around

Songthaews are your prime choice for getting around Pattaya. They are cheap – one trip costs from THB10 to THB40, depending on the distance you go – and several routes cover the whole city. The most useful routes of blue songthaews are from the junction of South Pattaya Road and Second Road to Jomtien; from Jomtien to the Dolphins roundabout in the north; and a Second Road-North Pattaya-Pattaya Beach Road loop. White songthaews run along Sukhumvit Road and bring you as far as Sattahip. Songthaews also work as hired taxis – you have to agree on the cost of the ride before you go.

Motorbike taxis are ubiquitous and affordable. With city traffic getting worse and worse these days, motorbike taxis offer a great solution.

Renting a car or a motorbike is also an option. Rental shops are located throughout the city. Scooters cost from THB200 per day (from THB2000 per month) and small cars like Honda City go at THB1000. Scams when you are forced to pay for ‘damage’ after you return the vehicle are not common, but note that police often stops both cars and motorbikes to check drivers’ licences. Belts and helmets are a must, too.

More bicycles are seen on Pattaya roads these days, but with quite chaotic traffic it is neither safe nor pleasant to pedal between speeding cars, tourist buses and bikes.

Where to stay

It is always a matter of taste, but if you are after a happening nightlife with a seedy flavour, look for centrally located hotels and guesthouses around Soi Buakhao and between Beach Road and Second Road. The North and Nakluea house respectable five-start chain hotels. Jomtien is a realm of relatively cheap guesthouses and mid-range hotels and the Jomtien beach, though mediocre, is still ok for swimming and sunbathing. Pratamnak is a bit off the public transport routes, but the area is very green and tranquil, and there are several nice beaches there, including Cozy Beach. Ambassador City Hotel area is far from the entertainments of the city and can be considered only if a lazy beach vacation is your thing.

Activities

Thought there are decent beaches in Pattaya and the vicinity, it is definitely not the prime beach destination. Yet visiting Pattaya is a very diverse and exciting experience. Here is our TOP-5 things to do in Pattaya to ensure you have a great time in the city.

  1. Visit world-famous Walking Street: go-go dancers, roaring music and visitors from every corner of the globe any day of the week.
  2. Go up View Point Hill to catch a postcard perfect view of the city while taking a cup of coffee in a no-frills but relaxed and friendly cafe.
  3. Spend a day in Khao Khew Open Zoo admiring elephants, giraffes and rhinos – both children and adults will enjoy it.
  4. Take a THB30 ferry boat to Koh Larn, find a secluded bay and savour your own island paradise.
  5. Feast on seafood in a restaurant in Bang Saray while watching the fishermen boats sailing to the night or delivering their daily catch.

Passenger reviews out of total 8,420 passengers traveled with us on this route

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 though we are closely monitoring services, we are still an agency marketplace - meaning we focus on ticketing service and route availability / coverage rather than on factual seat recline angle you got today ^_^

The staff at Mo Chit Terminal was quite confused with my booking and it took about 15-20 min before they gave me a bus ticket. Also the online ticket was a bit overpriced (149 THB) compared to the official price (108 THB) at the counter (where I had to go anyways). So only recommended if you are afraid that you wouldnt get a seat on the bus!

Turns out there was a problem with the booking but attitude of the hotline was - do you want to cancel, have you got a plane to catch, why you worried the driver is late, this is not our problem but the traffic. It was folllowed up by an apology email. Let’s see what the return pick up is like ???

The trip was ok once it got started. Our pickup was scheduled for 11 AM. We were at the front lobby looking out the window where all the taxi's etc come and go. At 11:30 I started making phone calls because there was no car or driver showing up for us. At 11:45 we finally found him around the side of the building. He said he was there for over an hour. I can't confirm if he was or wasn't. Why he didn't come to the front lobby where the taxi's come and go and look for us is beyond me. The rest of the trip was fine.

Rating is only for the driver gettin us to Pattaya almost 1 hour early. The terminal is far from transport so you are at the mercy of overcharging taxi divers. The van was dirty and had Spilled liquid and trash under the seat. I spent most of the ride fighting off ants crawling on me.

Driver had Extremely limited English. Car was Nice and clean with AC...car had a slight smell of cigarettes but it's tolerable. Driver talked on the phone and used his phone throughout the drive (probably trying to get directions), which was slightly dangerous on the freeway. Driver also took a group photo with us before the drive (probably sending it as confirmation to his boss). Lots of bumpy roads on the way, BUT We arrived safely and within the time frame specified. Driver also showed up 15 minutes early. 4 stars overall for the service. Car deserves 4.5 stars for its cleanliness and well-maintenance. I took 0.5 stars off for the cigarette smell, but like i said, it is faint and tolerable. I would definitely use this service again.

Being in a city, it's hard to get to place on time. Our driver was an hour late, but when we got in touch with the company we found out it was due to a car accident. They apologized profusely and refunded us 500 baht, which was more than generous. The driver came and took us straight to the hotel in Pattaya. We ended up accidentally leaving a phone in the car, but after the hotel contacted the company for us, the driver came back and we were able to retrieve the phone. We were extremely grateful.
