How to get from Pattaya to Bangkok

How to get from Pattaya to Bangkok

The distance from Pattaya to Bangkok is 150 km and it takes between 2 and 3 hours to get there whichever means of transport you choose. Big buses are the cheapest way to get to Bangkok with tickets starting from THB130 one-way. They all leave from Pattaya Northern Bus Station and head to all the three different Bus Terminals in Bangkok. Vans can be faster and slightly more expensive but may come handy as there are several van stations throughout the city – there can be one right next to your hotel, too. The most expensive way to travel is to take a taxi. They are great for door-to-door trips and are priced quite reasonably (from THB1,700). If you are travelling as a group consider ordering a private van for 9 passengers which can cost anywhere between THB2,400 and THB4,000. There are direct buses from Pattaya to Suvarnabhumi airport from 6am till 9pm.

Passenger reviews out of total 6,754 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 buses are badly maintained. Sometimes the air blows down your face from above and you can't close it. Seats are narrow. Had an XL person next to met and I was squashed against the window. But was ok overall.

Chaufførerne talte ikke engelsk. Men turen gik fint, og var meget billig, 150 bath. Bilen var gammel og der er ikke meget plads til bagage, så husk at bestille et ekstra sæde. Vi var kun 5 i vores og kun vores store kufferter. Vi blev mødt at 2 mænd der ville køre os til hotellet. De ville have 1800 bath, gik hurtig ned på 900 bath. Vi fandt hurtig en anden taxa og blev enig om 400 bath. Næste gang vil jeg hellere tage en taxa fra Pattaya til hotellet i Bangkok og ofre de 220kr mere. Det ville vare mere konfontabelt, og meget hurtigere.

I wanted to give 5 star because the driver is a shy and nice guy, he picked me up inside the ship terminal and the price is reasonable. The reason I give 4 star is that they didn't prepare a paper with passenger's name like other company. So the driver waited me there and I was there too but we couldn't find each other and wasted more than half an hour. The driver speak very limited English, if somebody can prepare a paper with my name on, the whole journey will be perfect.

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.

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.

My Bus time was at 9.30am but the lady at the counter arranged my journey on 8.50am. As I pre booked so my reservation chart was with the Lady at the counter,excellent service.

Wasn't able to attend this trip. The contact at the station doesn't speak English; I asked the hotel reception to call the number for me and she did. The station then said that they will pick me up at the hotel; minutes after I was told to go somewhere to be picked up. Good thing the hotel has a mini car service that can bring me anywhere near the hotel. Arrived at the place, but we found out that the bus station is far from our place (good thing I am with some local Thai at that time so that I was able to be assisted well. Eventually went to Central Pattaya Mall to take the minivan service there instead. The "Park Pattaya Hotel" is NOT exact. There is a hotel named "Park Hotel" in Pattaya, however I cannot risk going there without being 100% sure. The "Pattaya Pannipa" doesn't help either; it is nowhere to be found in Google Maps. I suggest next time to be REALLY CLEAR about the pick-up locations. Make sure that they can be located in Google Maps or generally in the internet! Especially for tourists like me who speak ZERO Thai. Don't care about the money wasted on this trip (it is only less than B200), but what I really hated was the inconvenience it caused me that morning, and the bad feeling of uncertainty on whether I would be able to meet my train at Hua Lamphong that very same day.
