Recommended Transportation


1 Getting to Pattaya

Most visitors to Pattaya come directly from Bangkok, either by bus from Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport or Ekkamai Bus Terminal, or by minibus, taxi, rental car, or even train. Once in Pattaya there are numerous ways to get around, including taxi, rental car (with or without driver), and via the ubiquitous blue songtaews.
By Bus
By Bus Timetables
  1. From Suvarnabhumi Airport - There are busses that leave directly to Pattaya from the airport's Transport Center, which is served by a complimentary shuttle bus that circles the airport. These air conditioned buses leave every couple of hours, cost just over 100 Baht, and arrive at the North Pattaya Road bus station about 1.5 hours later.
  2. From the Eastern Bus Terminal - (next to the BTS Ekkamai station, opposite Sukhumvit Road soi 63) There are bus departures throughout the day, leaving approximately every thirty minutes from around 5 am to nearly midnight. These air-conditioned busses cost just over 100 Baht for a one way ticket and complete the journey from Bangkok to Pattaya in around 2 hours.
  3. From Bangkok (Mo Chit Northern Bus Terminal and the Sai Tai Mai Southern Bus Terminal) Buses leave less frequently throughout the day, but at similar cost and travel time as those from Ekkamai.

    If your final destination is Jomtien Beach it may be preferable to get a 2nd class bus rather than the 1st class busses mentioned above, as many 2nd class busses continue on to Jomtien thus saving you the time and hassle of arranging a transfer from North Pattaya Road bus station. The bus station for the 2nd class buses is on South Pattaya Road.
  4. From the Northeast (Isan) and the North - There are direct air conditioned buses from Nong Khai, Khon Kaen and Nahkorn Ratchasima (Khorat) to Pattaya.
  5. From Other Northeastern Towns - It's best to get a bus to Ratchasima (Khorat) and then buy a ticket from there to Pattaya.
  6. From Chiang Mai and Mai Sai - There are direct busses to Pattaya.

By Car
It is a relatively short drive from Bangkok to Chonburi or Pattaya that is easily navigable by visitors in a rental car. It is also possible to hire a taxi to take you to or from Chonburi/Pattaya and Bangkok. These prices are negotiable and highly variable, but you should not pay more than 1200 for the taxi ride in either direction (inclusive of tolls) and can arguably get a cheaper fare back to Bangkok if you can find a Bangkok taxi that needs to return to the capital after dropping someone off at the coast and hanging around for the weekend looking for a return fare.

Chonburi is a one-hour drive from Bangkok along Highway No. 34 (Bang Na-Trat). Alternatively, you can take the Motorway (new Bangkok-Chonburi Route), which may even be a faster route.
By Train
The State Railway of Thailand offers a daily train service departing Bangkok's Hua Lumphong Station at 06:55 am. It takes about 5 hours to reach a station located near the Siam Country Club. Timetables
