Different Means to Travel from Bangkok to Pattaya
Travelling from Bangkok can be done in various ways, and surprisingly, there are some fun elements to it as well. If you are budget conscious, then you can find a cheap ride, but if you have more money, then you can enjoy your ride differently. Let me list out all the means you can take to travel from Bangkok to Pattaya.
Airport Bus is one of the best and the cheapest option to travel from Bangkok Airport to Pattaya. Around 160 Baht can earn a seat inside the air-conditioned bus. The bus stops at main spots like North, Central and South Pattaya on Sukhumvit Road and Jomtien Beach.
The Metered Taxi from Bangkok Airport has official pricing of 1050 baht plus 60 baht as express charges (whatever that means). You can take this taxi straight to your hotel without any trouble. The downfall of the Metered Taxi is communication in English. They do not understand you, and you can never understand them. Of course, not all but most of them cant speak English. They only time they speak English is when they ask you for some tips saying "No Tips".
There are a couple of taxi services which are also available driven by smart women and their family members. Let me warn you that these women are not prostitutes they are hard-working women. The service taxi's charge you 1200-1500 depending on car size. You can also hire a Mini Van if you are travelling in groups.
